With "kids back in school" Rush talks penises and femi-nazis

It is rare for Rush to show consideration to "kids". For example, Limbaugh attacked an eight year old girl, calling out her full name, the name of her school, and the city in which she lived, telling his considerable audience that her "little skull" is "full of mush just waiting to absorb all kinds of rotgut drivel and bilge." This, because:

"Megan Schroeder rides her bike or walks to school to do her part to help the planet." [—AP Story]

(Rush has for more than two decades asserted that climate change is a liberal hoax.)

Limbaugh gave but a moment's passing thought to school-aged children after he had already begun to launch this rubbish onto our public airwaves:

"If size matters, male private parts are shrinking, according to a new Italian study on sexuality." The kids are back in school now.  It's okay, it's September 20th.  It's just adults out there now.  "The study’s leaders claim to have bona fide research that says the average size of a penis is roughly 10 percent smaller than it was 50 years ago."  And the researchers say air pollution is why.  Air pollution, global warming, has been shown to negatively impact penis size, say Italian researchers.  I don't buy this.  I think it's feminism.  If it's tied to the last 50 years, the average size of a member is 10% smaller in 50 years, it has to be the feminazis. I mean, the chickification, everything else.  Give 'em time and they'll blame Bush.  Give 'em time.  But air pollution versus feminazis?  Ha.

Media Matters has the audio.

Limbaugh has stepped in it numerous times since the Sandra Fluke incident earlier this year. One of Limbaugh's more revealing gaffes concerned his attitude toward women having the right to vote:

When women got the right to vote is when it all went downhill, because that's when votes started being cast with emotion and maternal instincts that government ought to reflect.

Limbaugh later claimed that he was making a joke, explaining away the attack on women's rights with the statement that he was "just a little frustrated".
     
The greatest threat to Rush Limbaugh's continued obnoxious bloviating is the activism of consumers, volunteers, and activists who seek to hold Rush accountable for his pervasive, raunchy hate speech by joining Flush Rush on Facebook, and other groups that use the StopRush Database to inform advertisers about where their ads are appearing.

2:57 PM PT: Some suspect — perhaps facetiously — that Rush may be afflicted by koro syndrome:

The koro syndrome is a psychiatric disorder characterized by acute anxiety and a deep-seated fear of shrinkage of the penis...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      changed to compensate, or vaginal wall or cervical elasticity and dimensions changed, especially as feminist women learned they could have equal or greater pleasure in sexual relations by modifying positions and preferring males who would take the time to ensure they experienced pleasure with mutuality?  I'm wondering if sending pictures of increasingly large clitorises would have any impact on Rush?

          about Rush and his many many successes in relationships with the opposite sex.  If you don't believe me, ask him, the quintessential kid whose parents hired other kids to play with him.  Proof? On his last public vacation, he only took staffers with him.  It appears when it comes to friends, he has to hire people

    even if over two generations we have actually would have a percentage of women preferring males with smaller penises, is it possible this impact could occur in such a short time?  Is Rush pushing some sort of a rapid evolutionary theory where female preference is driving changes in male physiology?  

    There's another angle to consider, so to speak. Is it possible flacid penises might have become a bit shorter, but still capable of an erection expanding and filling to normal or near normal length?  It could be somewhat of an advantage for men in battle to have less exposure, a smaller profile, and we've had a number of wars over the last Century where many millions of men have been injured or killed...so maybe it's really the fault of the super macho dickish aggressive males that start wars?  My guess is feminazis would prefer to keep their males out of combat as much as possible.  I also doubt lashing out at women for being 'feminazis' will lead to successful reproductive relationships with women for such dickish males.

    On the other hand...it could just be 'head' games Rush plays to try to boost his sagging ratings.   Maybe Rush is simply pissed he doesn't have such a big ratings dick to wave around anymore as advertisers abandoned his show, and is realizing he's been losing power and prestige.  Maybe Rush is pissed that acting like a big dick isn't very acceptable in a majority of society now.
    Interesting timing to try to propagate the male fear of sexual inadequacy amongst conservative white males as Republican political momentum seems to have hit a nadir and may now be on a waning trend.  What will he really be able to offer as a means whereby males can 'compensate' for loss of big dickishness?  I wonder also if Rush is trying to work out an advertising deal with some of those penis enlargement pump vendors?

    Or maybe Rush going off half-cocked all the time is having a long term effect of shrinkage?

    He can barely walk from the parking garage to his broadcast booth.  Some years ago, when he was trying to show off his Macho Man credentials, he bragged about his HS football exploits (his HS did not have football program at that time), explained his sorrow at being 4F and denied his chance to serve (though a 15 minute outpatient surgery could have made him 1-A) and entered various celeb golf tourneys and bragged of his 1000 yard drives off the tee (he stopped the tourneys after his claims of addiction being due to extreme back surgery were debunked by his golf swing and pristine lower back)

    So, Rush has lowered the bar once again; this time he is competing with an 8 year old girl and can only go nyah nyah nyah at her from his bully pulpit.  Get a bike Rush; you can even get an NFL special edition so you can tell your Dittos that you are now an NFL owner

    My unsolicited advice to Rmoney.

    Mitt, everyone knows that it was Bill Clinton's speech at the Dem Convention that saved Obama.  But you've got your own Big Dog available:  Rush Limbaugh.

    Immediately cease all advertising and public appearances (you'll close half the polling gap right there) and save every nickle and dime for one whiz-bang all-TV-channel-saturation broadcast on election eve.

    Rush is the key in this get-out-your-base election.  Forty-five minutes of the Great One followed by fifteen minutes of whatever you decide that day to talk about.  A Reb Convention do-over.

    I've got  some other related ideas, but that's the big one (e.g., tailor the broadcast image for each station - darken your skin tones for BET, for Animal Planet use CGI to make you look like a ferret).

    Ann could also inspire the audience with a little "pep talk".
