So much of what Limbaugh says is shocking. Perhaps that's why so much of what he says gets by us.  Sometimes, I think I've built up a tolerance to his filth. Five minutes go by and bam! "He said, what?"

Our friends at Media Matters continue to monitor his every word on air, and even dog-ear some quotes for us like this one, on December 14:

LIMBAUGH: I found myself in an elevator with Mrs. Clinton once. It was at a wedding, Brooklyn, doors locked, she hits the stop button. She said, Oh Rush, I've wanted to see you for so long, and nobody would believe it. Would you, would you make a real woman out of me? I said, Sure, let's take off our clothes. So I took mine off, and I pointed and I said, Now fold them.


After reading quotes like this, thoughts begin rioting in my head, then quickly shuffle into their usual sequence of: "What? Are you f*cking kidding me? Again with this? What a PIG! How does he get away with it?"

He's not getting away with it. Not anymore. Hundreds and thousands are taking action via online groups like:

Flush Rush:
The StopRush Project:

They are taking action by contacting Limbaugh sponsors - a life support to his employer, Clear Channel. You can contact sponsors with other members, on your own, or sign petitions like this, that goes out to 40 sponsors at a time:

We're Finishing The Work, Richard Myers. Rest In Peace

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.
