View Diary: I asked Rush about sex tourism in the Dominican Republic (264 comments)

  •  No sympathy... (15+ / 0-)

    ...for him.  Some substance abusers do terrible things because they are trapped in an illness, but some substance abusers do terrible things because they are cruel and nasty to begin with.  I lack sympathy for Rush because he's an asshole, not because he's a recovering(?) addict.  Ditto for W.  

    Rush has got a 12 bedroom palace with 14 bathrooms, according to something I read earlier today.  He's worth millions.  My sympathies are for teenage girls forced by poverty or violence into the sex trade, whether or not it turns out Rush had sex with one of them.  

    •  I agree, no sympathy...but (5+ / 0-)

      But, does he seem to be losing it?  I mean losing it with a whimper, rather than a bang?  

      I just wonder what others who heard the call (and who maybe listen to more Rush than I do--which is not at all, except when Mike posts one of his exchanges).

      I find it interesting in that, if Rush is slipping and growing tired, it might fit with the slumping popularity of the Righty Mighty Wurlitzer.  Olbermann's closing the gap on Falafel Bill.  Fox News Channel's rating decline significantly for the second quarter in a row.  And now Rush seems...tired.

      Is there a narrative building here?

      •  Oh I surely do hope so... (0+ / 0-)

        ...we've been so inundated by far right voices on all the airwaves for so long, it will be a wonder if that narrative plays itself out...

        ...a true miracle, but a great one indeed.
