It is no longer necessary to attempt to testify before congress. One no longer must advocate for contraception, write an article or author a book. All that is necessary for Rush Limbaugh to assail a woman is for her to be anonymously framed in a video with the president:
I'm watching the mind-numbed robots sitting behind Obama at his campaign appearance in Fairfax, and there's this white-haired seasoned citizen smiling big time, and I'm thinking, "You're the biggest idiot I've seen today, lady! There is nothing to laugh about; there's nothing to smile about. You're sitting there behind a guy that's a pathological liar telling all this bohunk about Romney." [emphasis added]Yesterday's diary described how Limbaugh cleverly gets away with fomenting hate and inspiring latent violence, without having to worry too much about any backlash. In today's diary we see his despicable, arrogant malevolence — and his penchant for attacking innocent individuals who have no obvious means to defend themselves — in full display.

|Rush Limbaugh's talk radio career is in a slow downward spiral in part because of the activism of consumers, volunteers, and activists who seek to hold Rush accountable for his hate speech. One very active group in this cause is Flush Rush on Facebook. Flush Rush and other, similar groups use the StopRush Database to inform advertisers about where their ads are appearing.
