Well, gentle people - I had planned to beg off this week and take a break, as long as there were no Breaking News developments in Freeperville.
Am I stupid, or what?
Let's jump right in.
Before we get to the paramoid ravings of Freeperdom about gangs of Obama hit squads roaming the coutryside to shoot frozen virus darts into fringe right-wing commentators, we need to address something else first - misogyny.
Right-wing nutworld has always been a stronghold of misogyny, and I wasn't particularly surprised when a right-wing nutjob (whose previous claim to fame was getting caught with non-prescribed Viagra on his way back from the Dominican republic) got all "sluts-R-us" on an uppity female who dared to speak up for contraception as a part of healthcare. Didn't surprise me a bit.
This, however, did :

The young woman who was called a "slut" by Rush Limbaugh got a call Friday from President Obama who voiced support for her pro-birth control advocacy.
"He encouraged me and supported me and thanked me for speaking out about the concerns of American women," Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke said on MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports." She got the call from Obama while in a green room waiting to appear on the show.
"What was really personal for me was that he said to tell my parents that they should be proud and that meant a lot because Rush Limbaugh questioned whether or not my family would be proud of me," Fluke said. "So I just appreciated that very much."
Soon after she appeared on TV, Fluke also thanked Obama on her Twitter account. "Thank you @BARACKOBAMA for your call and words of support. It means so much to me and millions of women! #WeWillNotBeSilenced," she wrote.
If she’s still having issues getting contraception, she should try oral sex. It’s proven to make teeth whiter...To: ColdOne
Looking for some, I guress. Georgetown women are apparently easy...
After Michelle found out about the call she told the Zero “You called that slut? I’m going to cut your nuts off!”...
To: ILS21RShe’ll probably move to San Fran and go for Pelosi’s seat...er chair.
Pull Fluke from her chair and it will make a suction sound.
In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)

Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.
We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.
"Who's gonna sign my paychecks now???"
Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.
Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:
I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.
—It is true, he died of a massive heart attack.—
Hmmm. Reminds me of that old TV show, The Invaders...
We’ve lost an incredibly important piece from our side of the chess board.
I am almost thinking the same. If he is dead this is horribly suspicious and not unexpected from O. Especially after him claiming to have tapes of O.
Michael Savage: Was Breitbart Assassinated?
World Net Daily ^ | 3-1-12
Posted on Friday, March 02, 2012 12:30:19 AM by ReformationFan
Noting that the cause of Andrew Breitbart’s unexpected death yesterday was being examined by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office, talk-radio host Michael Savage raised the question of whether the conservative media powerhouse – who recently announced he had videos that could politically damage President Obama – was murdered.
On his top-rated show today, Savage played an audio clip of Breitbart telling an audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington last month that he had obtained videos that shed light on Obama’s ties to radicals in the early 1980s who helped propel him to the presidency.“Maybe my overly active imagination kicked into overdrive,” Savage told his listeners of his decision to raise the question. “But you heard what Breitbart said – he has videos … we’re going to vet the president.”
What can cause a sudden cardiac arrest? A gas, slow poison?
No. Let’s not get stupid here.
Certain drugs that are not commonly tested for in toxicology tests will mimic the symptoms of a heart attack.
in his recent speech he talked about having dinner with Bill Ayers who’s a great cook. Maybe the food had poison
A simple syringe filled with air. Used a lot by the mob and other friendly people.
another happy coincindence for the kenyan, eh? Kinda like Granny dying the day before the election
American contract killer Richard Kuklinski
Famous for working for the Black Mafia..
would kill with a small mist of a cyanide solution to bare skin. Unless there is a specific test for cyanide, the autopsy would always list the cause of death as heart failure. It can be done in broad daylight, without anyone observing what actually happened ...
To: Sarah Barracuda
...”a sudden death like this needs to be looked into”...
And, by people who do not have strong political motives.
I am surprised that only hours after Andrew died, the major media, FOX included, so quickly picked up the words, “died of natural causes,” before anything could be determined for certain. One has to wonder...
Charles Bronson (The Mechanic) making Keenan Wynn have a heart attack comes to mind.
I remember many years ago listening to G Gordon Liddy on his old radio show,and while discussing the death of J Edgar Hoover with a caller,the G Man said that the Gov possessed drugs which,when applied to a persons household items or toiletries,would produce a heart attack within 72 hrs.
To: WashingtonSourceWhy doesn’t someone like Bill Ayers die suddenly of natural causes?
Because none of us has the murderous heart nor the know-how to do up one of those little poisonous tree-frog darts as are found in Kenya
You seem to be mixing up South America and Africa.
I blame home schooling.
and mysteriously, more recently, on Pennsylvania Avenue.
RIP, Andrew. You will not be forgotten. I'm devastated by this news. A major blow to conservativism. It's very suspicious.
Report: Bomb Squad Responding To Rush Limbaugh's House
WPBF 25 News ^ | 3/1/2012
Posted on Thursday, March 01, 2012 5:38:42 PM by Heartlander2Bomb squad on way to Rush Limbaugh's home.
To: Heartlander2My initial response to the official reason for Briebart's passing was to accept it without question.
Maybe that wasn't so wise.
I suspect some well-funded lefty group like Anonymous is behind Breitbart and this.
Some slut properly sent it.
Rush committed the political equivalent of the “unforgivable sin”: he went after the left’s crotch — which is all they really care about. They have slaughtered some 50 million babies since Roe v Wade — all in the name of protecting women’s right to do what they want with their own crotches.
Well thanks for airing his address you commie libtard media scum.
I still maintain the best precious metal investments are in copper, lead, brass, and blued steel.

“They really want to shut us up, but if it’s war they want, it’s was they will get!!!!
Yep, they are just BEGGING for it. And they shall recieve. “
Amen. Starting to get a little p!ssed.
It’s pretty screwed up when we can honestly believe that lefties would go all out and declare war in this manner. Sign of the times.
Sign of a looney, you mean.
We’re at a breaking point, never seen things so bad. Heck of a guy that 0bummer is. Heck of a guy.
To: Retired Greyhound
There is poison that can be frozen into the shape of a dart and fired from a gun.
Hopefully the Bomb Squad are Rush fans.
The most effective weapon against fear is anger. Remember this.
From an updated story, on the Palm Beach Daily News website:
At a press conference at the Limbaugh property, Palm Beach Police spokesman Fred Hess said the package appears to not be dangerous or hazardous. He said it was delivered late this afternoon and was X-rayed, as is all mail sent to the Limbaughs’ home. When Limbaugh’s staff saw what appeared to be wires in the package through the X-ray, they called police.
The package was sent by a man in Pennsylvania as a “business opportunity” for Limbaugh, Hess said. The man was not identified, but when authorities called him he apologized, Hess said.
The package contained an electronic placque commemorating the assassinations of Abraham Lincoln and John Wilkes Booth. No further details about the plaque were immediately available.
Mark Levin spoke to Rush, he and wife are fine, no more to be said.
Limbaugh apologizes to law student for insult

Posted on Saturday, March 03, 2012 7:03:01 PM by redrenoWASHINGTON (AP) -- Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh apologized Saturday to a Georgetown University law student he had branded a "slut" and "prostitute" after fellow Republicans as well as Democrats criticized him and several advertisers left his program.
Rush is a coward...

As far as I’m concerned he probably lost 10% of his listening audience. I always felt that he would lead us into the attack. I should’ve taken him at his word that he is simply an entertainer.
Rush, broken defeated old man by the venomous radical dominant left-wing media.
That leaves only Mark Levin and the bullseye moves onto him.
To: Uncle SlaytonThe news item fell under the radar quickly, but a suspicious package was delivered to Limbaugh's Florida home. It was explained as being a business opportunity sent by a fan. However, you have to wonder if someone did not fire a shot across the bow, to remind Limbaugh that he is not invulnerable. With his age (early 60s), his weight issues, and his past oxycondin use, an untimely demise would be considered plausible by many, if not most, people.
I quit listening to him on “Bloody Thursday” when he joined forces with Fox and the GOP-e to take out Newt. I had been with him and admired him from day one. I quit listening to him on “Bloody Thursday”.
I will listen to his cartoon show on Monday, just to hear his sorry a$$ try to talk his way out of this one. Then as far as I am concerned, it’s time to stick a fork in him.....
He has all the money that any sane man would need to retire... it’s time for him to do that.
The Obama Administration must’ve found pictures of Rush with some Asian boys.
Rush sold out. He’s a scumbag. And he did it in a Saturday.138 posted on Saturday, March 03, 2012 4:57:40 PM by Krankor (eenie meenie, chili beanie, the spirits are about to speak.)..To: Keith in Iowa; TSgtThe Alinksy tactic WORKED. On ElRushbo.
You guys couldn't be more wrong. He was the one who was able to make them look absurd. In the end, he apologized for word choice but not the criticism he used the words to make. Think just a little bit guys.
