Today's Rush News

On the nasty kind of rush. Media Matters has put together Limbaugh's use of the term "feminazi" over the eons.

I have reclaimed that term, natch, and often use it here to describe myself. Imagine me wearing the triple-horned helmet and steel-toed boots, marching in goose-step with myself, making all misogynists dream nightmares of long armpit hair on women and a world where men must wear eye shadow and lip liner and have feelings.

No other group fighting for civil or human rights has been given a moniker associating them with Hitler in such a successful way. What makes this especially poignant is that the real Nazis preached "Kueche, Kinder und Kirche" for women and limited the role of women to breeding lots of little Nazis.

So far Rush has lost (at least temporarily) 141 advertisers.
