As a rule, I try not to submit such brief "one-item" diaries. However, I will make an exception in this case.
Rush Limbaugh has been dumped by the only local English-speaking AM radio station here in Puerto Rico. This was music to my ears as I awoke and was preparing myself to go to work today. The radio interlocutor (who I believe is also the station owner) read over the air a communication from a listener that called for the removal of "the racist" Rush Limbaugh after he made statements comparing or linking in some way or other Judicial Supreme Court Nominee Puerto Rican Sonia Sotomayor to the Ku Klux Klan. Since I don't pay attention to the rubbish spewed by Limbaugh, I'm not sure of the exact statement he made about Sotomayor. Nevertheless, I had suspected it would be a matter of time before local Radio Station WOSO was forced to dump the idiot, even if on a temporary basis. On this occasion, after reading the communication over the airwaves, the station owner said that WOSO was responding to the views (not exact words) of its public. Interestingly he said, "WOSO isn't dumping ...Limbaugh, Limbaugh is dumping us."
WOSO is the only English Language Radio Station in the San Juan, Puerto Rico area (and may be so for the entire island, but I'm not sure). The station is very conservative, pro-statehood for Puerto Rico, and backs the Republican Party in the USA. While it likes to think that it caters to the affluent (business) class here in Puerto Rico (which tends to largely be bilingual), the reality of the matter is that it has little if any listening public among what might be termed the Puerto Rican "street". If it did, Limbaugh would likely have been banned instead of temporarily dumped.
Unfortunately, I suspect they will bring his nauseous rants back when the whole Sotomayor nomination is resolved and she becomes Supreme Court Justice, as I happily expect she will be.
