Rush Limbaugh Billboard Promises People of Tucson More Shooting

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Probably about to be covered with some Obama graffiti, even though this is one of our greatest monuments.
Sure, the people of Tucson love getting shot. But did they know they can also get shot on the radio? It’s true! They just have to listen to Rush Limbaugh on their radio, according to this billboard that’s “down the street where Giffords was shot.”

If you think about it, that shooter really wasn’t very good. His kill count could have been higher. His aim was actually a littler gay, if you ask us. Whereas Rush, who is fueled by beef fat and pills, shoots straight.

In Rush’s defense, this alone is not inciting anyone to shoot people; but more importantly, is there really a fair way to portray his show? Putting up stills of that “Two Girls, One Cup” video would be accurate, but probably would run up against decency laws. [Reddit]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • OneDollarJuana

    Radio station got its call letters wrong. It's spelled KuNTS.

    • Radiotherapy

      You can't spell Alaskunt without KNST.

    • SorosBot

      Dammit, I was gonna make that joke.

  • OneDollarJuana

    And what is this billboard telling us? Rush Limbaugh shoots straight? If so, that's not really a very tight pattern. We're supposed to shoot at Rush Limbaugh? Rush Limbaugh likes those little fake bullet hole stickers that dweebs put on their mom's Caravan (next to the baseball stuck in the window sticker and the Hawaiian turtle family stickers)?

    • smokefilledroommate

      Turtles, sure whatever–but I hate those goddamn family decals with the stupid little family people.

      • Lascauxcaveman

        A local Hummer H2 in my town has the little sticker family on its back window, only with little Boston Redsox shirts on and dialog balloon coming from one of the sticker people that says "Yankees Suck!"

        And this is on the westernmost edge of the west coast. You see a lot of dumb stuff on (and in) Hummers.

        • DoktorZoom

          and getting…

        • DustBowlBlues

          Big trucks mean the same thing down here. Sort of. My husband and I call them "little dick" trucks. I've told my friends that if I win the lottery, I'm going to hire two bodyguards from NJ, and whenever I walk past a guy with a giant truck or, when they were cool, a Hummer, I'd say, "Hey! Just how little is your dick?" and then, when the weinie got threatening, up would step Vinny and Lou.

      • HELisforHEL

        Oh yes, those 'Look at meeee we can't stop breeding!' stickers. I always wonder if they have them so they can remember how many little consumers they've popped out.
        I give the turtles a pass–but only because of my unending love of Hawaiian references.

    • edgydrifter

      My thoughts exactly. That's a shitty spread, so "straight" can't be a reference to his excellent marksmanship. And we know he pays to hump boys, so it's not a reference to his sexuality. And he's easily the least factually-correct bloviator on the air, so it's not a reference to his veracity. And he once went deaf from chronic oxy abuse, so that rules out both sobriety and a law-abiding character.

      Exactly what the fuck is straight about Rush at all? I'm at a loss.

      • Gleem_McShineys

        Good deconstruction there. So that leaves only one option left: that the dominican boys he "shoots" are definitely not gay.

      • BarryOPotter

        The only thing straight about Rush is his cigar. Everything else undulates with curvature.

      • YasserArraFeck

        Going straight to Hell, if there's any justice

      • James Michael Curley

        My ENT doctor said that the only thing which causes such profound deafness as quickly as it struck Limbaugh was Syphliss.

    • Barrelhse

      "Hey! That's MY Caravan you're talking about!"- Arianna Huffington

    • Rarian Rakista

      When you are suffering from congestive heart failure like Rush the target becomes the size of a 10" diner plate.

    • Terry

      It's actually clearing up the confusion regarding Limbaugh's sexual orientation.

    • Pithaughn

      A lot of fat old men who golf can hit it straight. In the pro golf world it's called hitting the big ball before the little ball.

    • MaxNeanderthal

      I could shoot tighter groups with the clubs 40 year old BSA when I was 17 than that spread. What did the fat fuck use? A blunderbuss? Figures…

  • weejee

    Two Girls, One Cup

    That turd Limpnutz haz scat scratch fever? That's the shitz.

    • emmelemm

      Not for the GIRLS. Two twink brown boys + cup, maybe.

  • mereoblivion

    Rush may shoot straight, but he'd never knowingly shoot a straight man. Except Al Franken, and he's Jewish, so there's that.

    • freakishlywrong

      I think were I a dusky hued straight of any stripe, I'd pretty much expect Rush's aim to be true, if ya get my drift.

      • mereoblivion

        Your drift is too sadly true.

  • glamourdammerung

    Why is Rush blood libeling Sarah Palin?

    And raping Baby Trig with his mouth?

  • DahBoner

    That billboard looks so inspirational that it makes me want to shoot that billboard up into little fluffy pieces of paper floating in the breeze.

  • DustBowlBlues

    OT–Why do the trolls on the wonket always use text message talk. Do they all think this is the twatter, or what? Is it styled after the way their goddess, Sarah, writes?

    • smokefilledroommate

      No there just that stupidz!!!1!

    • Crank_Tango

      I thought we were all trolls on here.

      • genxr

        Yeah. Stupidz trollz. Ha.

      • DoktorZoom

        And I think we're all Bozos on this bus.

        • smokefilledroommate

          I've always dreamed of being a Bus Bozo.

          • DashboardBuddha

            C'mon here and give the wheeze a squeeze.

    • SorosBot

      Why U all leetists tells us how 2 rite?

      • Sparky_McGruff

        They needs 2 keep aways fom us all with thier govmint grammer

    • comrad_darkness

      You know you aren't supposed to hit submit until there are little red zig-zags under every word of your post. Keep up.

      • smokefilledroommate

        kile htis?

        • SorosBot


  • LionelHutzEsq

    If they really wanted to capture Rush, they could keep the caption, but put a young Hispanic boy on the billboard, his face covered in ejaculate.

    • Grizzlyalbert

      I fist you one, best of the afternoon.

    • Negropolis

      You know when you laugh so hard no audible sound comes out? Yeah, I'm doing that, right now. It's like a dry heave, except that it's a laugh, but not a dry laugh or because of dry humor.

    Rush Limbaugh

  • MinAgain

    Rush Limbaugh. All his taste is in his mouth.

    • MrsBiggTime

      does he spit, or swallow?

      • JustPixelz

        how would i know? ha ha, I mean, there's no way I could possibly know the answer to that question. ha ha.

      • MinAgain

        If his show is any indication, he projectile vomits.

      • Salacious Crumb


    • ShaveTheWhales

      Taste bud libel.

  • freakishlywrong

    Ironically, the only thing straight about Rush is that beard of a wife of his.

    • DoktorZoom

      Are you saying he's so deep in the closet he could see Narnia?

  • Radiotherapy

    The only thing that could make this more unbelievable would be an image of Gabby's head wound plastered on it.

  • chascates

    Today's Limbaugh show via MediaMatters:

    Limbaugh Agrees With Caller: "Civility Is The New Censorship"

    • genxr

      That's quite an about face from the old, "An armed society is a polite society."

    • comrad_darkness

      Are you kidding? Being civil would cost him $7 million a year.

      • Rarian Rakista

        Being civil might kill him, his body would go in shock from loss of bile.

      • jim89048

        One good civil suit, however…

    • JustPixelz

      It's worse than censorship! Civility REQUIRES that you say "please" and "thank you" and "excuse me" and "I'm sorry". Those are mandates from the Department of Civility Defense.

    • prommie

      Of course, and manners are a form of slavery. Politeness is bondage. Its the credo of the infant, of course, there is only me, I want, I get, noone else is worthy of consideration, charity, concern, civility, kindness, nothing, complete and utter selfishness.

      The Randian element in GOP politics lately has gotten to where they have made a philosophy oout of a pathology, narcissistic personality disorder.

      • glamourdammerung

        And the Breitard(s) acting obnoxious here for the sake of being obnoxious should troll your comment while not recognizing the irony of doing so in 3…2…

      • Trinket

        One thousand fists for this!

      • transfatz

        Civility is "urban" mind control.

        • trampndirtdown

          very urban

      • HELisforHEL

        I second Trinket's fists!! A billion up-thumbs for you, Prommie.

    • deanbooth

      The Civility War = The War of Northern Suggestion

    • baconzgood

      What does Rush know about "civility"? The fat pig eats fist full of puppies with his bare hands whilst slobbering and yammering for more naked Hispanic boys to bring him goof-ball pills.

  • SorosBot

    Rush must have learned to shoot straight in the military, since he's the right age to have been drafted in Vietnam and as a pro-war guy to avoid the draft would mean he's a hypocritical lying sack of shit.

    • Dana Marschz

      Pilonidal cysts must be hell on accuracy. Both for Shooting and Radio Blabbing.

    • MiniMencken

      I guess you haven't heard about his pilonoidal cyst (aka sacrococcygeal fistula). Well, you're probably better off not knowing about such things.

      • Salacious Crumb

        pilonoidal fisting.

    • comrad_darkness

      He'd have to take that slogan off his business cards in that case.

  • memzilla

    KGUN-TV 9 is the ABC affiliate. Owned by that entertainment conglomerate with the theme parks in Florida, the state where nothing bad ever happens.

    • LesBontemps

      KGUN is pronounced Kagan so therefore commie-lesbo-jew conspiracy to blood libel Rush.

      • HedonismBot

        "Kagan?" Like our newest softball-playin' soshulist Supreme Court justice? So it really is a liberal conspiracy after all.

  • Winnie_Cooper

    Nope, ABC. So sorry.

  • ManchuCandidate

    Baby, if you've ever wondered,
    Wondered whatever became of me,
    I'm bloviating on the air in Arizona,
    Arizona, KUNT.

    Got kind of tired boner pill popping,
    Take my shots up and down the AM dial
    Maybe you and me were never meant to be,
    But baby take a shot for me once in awhile.

    I'm a KUNT in Arizona..

    Dick Cheney: Straight Shooter

  • Radiotherapy

    Imagine Gabby, with her eyes open, seeing this wickedness.
    Tell me again where the inflammatory rhetoric is from the Left.

    • freakishlywrong

      Oh Radio, radio. You don't actually have to name NAMES or show proof or anything! Silly radio, it's because they say it's on the left and the right, (and they always say LEFT first), so therefore, it just is.

      • Radiotherapy

        Damn that Left Wing Radio! With all their blood libel talk.

    • Extemporanus

      Apropos of our recent exchange regarding handicapped link sausage "Rough" Limbaugh, I imagine that it would feel something LIKE THIS.

      • Radiotherapy

        Actually, what's funnier is that Rough can't keep it in the fairway. He CAN'T shoot straight.

    • SorosBot

      The inflammatory rhetoric is when the left points out that something Rush (for example) says is either inflammatory, or racist, sexist, homophobic, antisemitic, or other bigoted, which is much worse than actually saying something inflammatory or bigoted.

      • imissopus

        I've heard Breitbart say that the worst thing you can do to anyone in this country is accuse them of being a racist.

        You know, as opposed to actually being a racist.

        In any case, I'm betting Gabby Giffords might beg to differ.

        • SorosBot

          If calling someone's statement inflammatory is blood libel, then calling a racist a racist is slavery.

  • DustBowlBlues

    Speaking of insane, did anyone see the video on The Last Word last night, of the California congressman who barely beat the Teabagger? I came in on it late, but he must have been at the election board and was surrounded by teabaggers screaming "don't tread on me, Bob" "scumbag" and "Jew". It took a police escort to get him out of there.

    WTF? Giffords was a congress member. The assassin had notes about how he hated her. She's a Jew. He likes the works of Hitler.

    Go ahead, Teabggers: tell me this wasn't a political attack. Just a random act of one crazy man. It had nothing to do with the venom spewed constantly by Sean O'Rushbeck, not to mention that hideous Alan Jones and the vile Michael Savage. They get these fools worked up until theyk're foaming at the mouth and acting like rabid dogs. Anti-semetic rabid dogs. Is America at the point when, collectively, people are ready to say what the president should at the SOTU? ENOUGH!

    • el_chupacabra
    • imissopus

      I saw that over on Jeffrey Goldberg's blog at The Atlantic this morning. I thought I heard O'Donnell say it was actually outside the congressman's victory party, but I might be wrong. In any case I was thinking about posting it on a few chat boards today and challenging the Tea Partiers to find me an equivalent video of a Democrat's supporters doing something like that to a Tea Party winner, but I don't have the patience or the time.

    • Serfville

      Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! "Sean O'Rushbeck" love it. Yes, I saw O'Donnells show. Beyond belief. I like O'Donnell's balls & also I can't wait to see Bill Maher tomorrow night give it to the NRA & the rest of the Gestapo. The only thing Sarwah is upset about is, she got her crown knocked off. She couldn't even bear one second of humility or humaness in her crackpot retort. Total sociopath.

    • Cicada

      I saw this at the Atlantic too, and it freaked me out. The thing that really got to me was that the Teabagger opponent was actually leading the mob. Fucking assholes.

  • neiltheblaze

    Rush shoots real good – especially when he takes his boner pills and humps a Nicaraguan boy street walker.

    • Barbara_i

      Boner pill? Oh, I get it. Dr. Porkenheimer's Boner Juice.

  • JoshuaNorton

    I, for one, have no problem with "Second Amendment Remedies" being applied directly to Rush Limbaugh signs.

  • BlueStateLibel

    That evil old turd–I got five minutes of him today bitching about the memorial with some gravelly-voiced, bitter old hag. There was more poison in those five minutes than in a pit full of rattlesnakes.

    • Karma_Suture

      He's a big fat sack of motherfuckers.

  • horsedreamer_1

    The two dames with one chalice between them are much too classy for Rush.

  • Cicada

    Oh my! Who could have predicted that Limbaugh's marketing team would come up with something offensive and inflammatory in the wake of the Tuscon shootings?

    Feed the machine.

    Also, I hear Rush likes to do some "straight shooting" into the mouth of his Thai boytoy.


  • prommie

    In my country there is problem,
    And that problem is the Liberal.
    They take everybody's money,
    They never give it back.

    Throw the Liberal down the well,
    So my country can be free.
    You must grab him by his horns,
    Then we have big party.

    If you see the Liberal coming,
    You must be careful of his teeth.
    You must grab him by his money,
    And I tell you what to do…

      I think you stole that from Radio Rwanda circa 1994.

    • OneTrueLiberal

      Is there a . . . what is it called? . . . "dance mix"? . . . (thank you, Lorena) . . . version of that song? But with "Middle Class Straight White Man" substituted for "Liberal"?

      Franklin so likes to "dance" to . . . .(pardon me, dear?) . . . "hep hoc" (is that right?) music by . . . reppers?

      [Dear me. Our minority friends seem to have different words for everything. And the quaintest and most . . . colorful . . . accents.]



  • HolyMaracas

    Catchy – it rhymes with "takes it in the pooper."

  • mavenmaven

    Lets be honest. They say all kinds of things, but in their hearts they like it that folks are listening to their bile and shooting the opposition as a result.

    • DustBowlBlues

      And, let us not forget, advertisers are buying time and paying this toxic, fat wind bag a salary he clearly doesn't deserve. Just sit there and spew hate. How do these people maintain the insane level of crazy they use?

  • BarackMyWorld
    • Ducksworthy

      Please. Duping the stoopid is 3/5 of the consumer goods market.

      • glamourdammerung

        Not to mention the main (only) plank of movement conservativism.

      • trampndirtdown

        Gah you said 3/5ths now you're a racist nyah nyah nyah.

  • CapeClod

    I call that misleading advertising. It's impossible to shoot straight when you're hopped up on oxycontin.

    • Blendergoathead

      But, but, BUT… I shoot BETTER when I'm on oxycontin! Really! Now let me loose from this motel room, and why is the family here? Lemme go!

  • DerrickWildcat

    If Liberals are so peaceful, why did they shoot up Rush's sign?

    • OneDollarJuana

      It's not liberals that shoot up all those signs, it's good-old-boy conservatives, who can't resist shooting any sign, because words are confusing.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Behind every tough-talking self-described dangerous badass is a fat homely ninny who gets his maid to buy his Oxy for him.

  • baconzgood

    Doesn't look like that straight. I mean look at it. He's all over the place. No sir, no William Tell here.

    • DoktorZoom

      He's no William Burroughs, that's for sure.

      • baconzgood

        Naked Lunch reference……Obscure and literate. No wonder you are a DR. and have a "W" next to your name.

    We need a modern day sign from God, how about a burning billboard.

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    Please read in the voice of the Gipper…

    Mr. Limbaugh, take down this billboard!

  • metamarcisf

    I'd like to pose the same question to Rush Limbaugh as was discussed during last weeks stupendous debate for the RNC Chair:

    How many guns do you own?

  • EdFlintstone

    Just wondering, does Rush's hairy ass mole that kept him out the service interfere with the butt secks with the cabana boy?

  • Extemporanus

    Take that, drive-by media!

  • Barrelhse

    He's as refreshing as a scab sandwich and a glass of pus.

  • comrad_darkness

    Oh, the FAIL. That isn't the pattern of a straight shooter. It's a drive-by shooting in Compton. The man can't get anything right, facts, logic . . . his own stupid signs.

  • Sassomatic

    Those aren't bullet holes, libtards. Those are tiny little volcanoes from which Rush spews his lava of hate-truth, straight up to Jesus in Heaven.

    • SorosBot

      They're images of his anal cysts.

      • OneDollarJuana

        I'm not sure why I gave that a thumbs up or down or anything. I don't want my thumb anywhere near his AC's.

    • Ducksworthy

      Ass pustules.

  • NadePaulKuciGravMcKi

    Rush Limbaugh demands a real 9/11 investigation.

    • Crank_Tango

      wow. it's been a while.

    • OneDollarJuana

      No he doesn't. The Repubs won't come out so well if it's a real investigation.

  • MissTaken

    There was a commercial during last night's Craig Ferguson of this blowhard trying to improve his golf game and making some sort of reality show out of it. I couldn't sleep at all last night after watching that for the image of his fat ass swinging back and forth was burned into my retina.

    • Crank_Tango

      at least it wasn't his ballsack swinging back and fourth over the boney backside of a costarican ladyboy. gross, now I need to bleach my brain.

      • MissTaken

        Thanks Crank for making it two nights of sleep I'll miss out on. Icky.

    • GOPCrusher

      It's going to be on Golf Channel, so no one will see it.

  • fuflans

    thanks, rush.

    i find it encouraging that we have moved beyond the divisiveness and rancor of the last few years and are now engaged in constructive dialogue. I enjoy your data-based analyses. Your arguments are cogent, thoughtful and practical. Your solutions to today's myriad problems are both realistic and pragmatic and will no doubt convince many.

    I look forward to future reasoned conversations.



  • Sassomatic

    This is going to be hilarious. Now he has to decide whether to leave it up and prove what an ass he is, or take it down and prove it's offensive and TOTALLY related to the Tuscson shootings. Good luck, dude.

    • sati_demise

      I wrote him about this. I suggest everyone do so. I love to see a scumbag squirm.

  • MarionNYNY

    Somebody should explain to Rush that you can't pull off the "bad boy" thing when you're fat a turd with man boobs.

    • OneDollarJuana


    • trampndirtdown


  • iburl

    I tipped Wonkette on this, but then I saw it on HuffPo later, SORRY for sharing anything that that horrible site already 'reported' on.

    • Sassomatic

      i saw i there first and hoped it would pop up here so I could say funny shit that wouldn't be "moderated."

    • BeWoot

      Is it too late to tip Wonkette about Ms. Kelsey Grammer no longer being in love? Or that one of those starlet people is pregnant? Cause I really want a "scoop" and I've got just the Twitter feed to do it!

      Oh, and also, Ariana Huffpo thinks Rep. King is SANE on that new Please Don't Shoot the Congresspeople bill.

  • weejee

    Don't know if there is enough Viagra and boobs on the planet to make Rush a straight shooter.

    • Bonzos_Bed_Time

      His own or someone else?

  • whiterabid

    I would like to excise the cancer that is Rush Limbaugh. Wait. Is that a civil thing to say?

    • EatsBabyDingos

      "Lance" is the word.

  • WhatTheHeck

    I'm waiting for survivors of the Tucson shooting victims to seek monetary damages in a court of law from the likes of Rush, Sarah and Glenn.

    • MiniMencken

      The Blacklist of supposed Communist Party members in the media was finally put out of its misery by the CBS radio show host John Henry Faulk suing AWARE, Inc., a group started up by Senator Joe McCarthy that had smeared him. So, good plan, chimpy!

  • Jukesgrrl

    When the Democratic Club in the Tucson neighborhood I live in started cleaning litter off the street as a civic volunteer activity, they asked that a sign NOT be put up announcing the donation, as is the custom. Why? Because there were many cases of previous signs with the words "Democratic Party" being riddled with bullet holes and they didn't want anyone to get hurt. I didn't know Rush was a Democrat.

    • DustBowlBlues

      This sounds so sadly typical. These people are crazy.

      • sati_demise

        And they have lots of guns. They can conceal carry anywhere.

        Wyatt Earp enforced stricter gun laws than we have now.
        He refused to let people carry at night in bars.
        But we can now! whoooooeeeee!!11!

        • Jukesgrrl

          Just think … we live in a place that calls that "progress."

      I think the billboard is more like a "serving suggestion".

  • Gunner Asch

    If only Neilist still graced us with his presence we could become educated on the caliber of weapon it would take to make those holes.

    • SorosBot

      He does, just under a new account with a new gimmick.

      • DoktorZoom

        There is one, and only one, mildly redeeming feature of Neilist's new persona: Virtually every time I see it, it reminds me of Walter Matthau in Hopscotch (around the 1:25 mark)

    • CapnFatback

      I hear that if you write ".357" on your computer screen, stare into the screen, and chant his name three times, Neilist will appear in a pop-up window writing the clunky verbal cosplay that he confuses for snark.

      Don't try it, though, cuz no one who has has lived to LOL again!

    • PuckStopsHere

      He had to die. He was making jokes, jokes about shooting 9-year-old girls. On Saturday afternoon.

      • Gunner Asch

      I was at a local dinner and had a friendly exchange with the businessman next to me. His steak was too rare and I offered him mine, with a bite missing, and we exchange. Haha. Nice laffs. He managed all the Subways in the region and I talked about how hard it must be to travel that much and stay awake at the wheel all the time.

      I offered the solution my daughter, the much-travelled union organizer came up with, she listens to Hate Talk radio and yells back. At the phrase Hate Talk Radio he turned green and the friendly exchange ended.

      That's what I always call it to people around here: Hate Talk Radio. Because that's what it is, and they love it because the hate spewers are the only ones who "tell it like it is" in hate fantasy land where the Hatriots and Teatards live, anyway.

  • bflrtsplk

    Rush is referring of course to his experiences with Latino boys, but then none have yet come forward to give him a good reference.

  • __kth__

    The only time Rush is a "straight shooter" is when he pulls out of the Dominican 12-year-old for the home-video money shot.

  • cheaphits

    Rush is a Disc Jockey who got very, very lucky when Roger Ailes picked him in '88

    Without that he would be doing drive time in Peculiar, Missouri.

  • SheriffRoscoe

    Libtards always want to poo-poo a man's shooting abilities.

    • jim89048

      Are you suggesting he choose off Hopey in a friendly game of H O R S E?

  • glamourdammerung

    Yeah, the manly draft dodger that cried like a bitch when busted for drugs is a real "straight" shooter. Because when I think of conservative masculine stereotypes, crying like a girl is at the top of the list.

    • DustBowlBlues

      Why do his fans follow him like slavish lap dogs? There are such morans.

    • OneTrueLiberal

      Franklin and I could not agree with you more. Any "man" who cries at the murder of a nine-year-old girl in an Arizona parking lot is effeminate and contemptible.

      Unless he is a TrueLiberal, of course.

      Then he is a Sensitive And Caring, Deeply Empathetic Fellow Member of Humanity, like all of us.

    Mural's big, huh? ( = Rush Limbaugh)

      Largish, Uh, Bum.

      Diabetic Rush: Sugar limb, huh?

  • MiniMencken

    Now, now, Wonketteers, I'm sure that in a few days we'll have Sister Sarah Aimee Semple Palin on Fox News or a Vimeo video explaining that Rushky's billboard is using the word "shooter" in a satirical way.

    • Sassomatic

      One could easily make a an argument for "straight shooter" meaning simply one who is clear-headed and sensible. But the bullet holes kind of ruin that argument.

    • DustBowlBlues

      I can't wait until the Republithug debates of 2012. I hope Sarah runs. Without Steve Schimdt (?? name??) and the other McCain lackeys pouring facts into her brain, think how fun it will be. Who will be willing to tell her stuff, like WWI is called that because it came before WWII, even for cash?

      The other Republithugs in the lunch are going to turn her into roadkill.

  • glamourdammerung

    Also, anyone else remember when the free market deciding it was not worth having Rush as the part owner of a football time was "just like the Holocaust"?

    • Salacious Crumb


  • JackObin

    "Straight" shooter? Four marriages and no issue I believe qualifies as a "Gay" shooter. Besides, whales are harpooned, not shot.

  • GOPCrusher

    +1 for the Dirty Harry reference though.

    • jim89048

      K-GUN, or Coogan? As in Coogan's Bluff, another Clint Eastwood classic, in which he played a Marshal from Arizona!

  • GOPCrusher

    Did I miss something, or did Boss Limbaugh ever get around to suing the people that were claiming that he was a racist?
    I never did get my court summons in the mail.

  • genxr

    Wait till you see his new slogan:

    "Like a 30-round clip for your radio."

  • donner_froh

    Not only a loose cluster but he only came close with seven shots out of a total of 33, assuming he was using the Jared Lee Loughner signature model, available from GLOCK Gesellschaft mbH and sold only to law enforcement personnel or random nutcases.

  • GOPCrusher

    I'm beginning to think that elRushbo must be afraid that he's losing his audience to all the other wing nut commentators and web sites. Seems like he's really ratcheted up the insanity in the last year or so. It's like he is trying to piss as many people off as he can, the more, the better.
    He probably goes home at night, kicks off the shoes, takes an oxycontin and a glass of scotch and thinks to himself "I can't believe the shit I said today.".

    • sati_demise

      No. here is nothing there. his brain just jiggles it is all blubber

    • Salacious Crumb

      he's wants to peak before the rapture, when he'll lose most of his audience.

      • Jukesgrrl

        Wish I could direct more p to u!

        Me, too, What Jukes said.

  • Callyson

    Actually, the more I look at them the more those bullet holes look like germs.
    Even the billboard is made ill by Rushbo's rants…

  • sati_demise

    Well, I, for one, sent that nice Mr. Limbaugh a sweet email about what a loving tribute this billboard is as a commemorative for the Tucson shooting.

  • Texan_Bulldog

    Per TPM, Clear Channel decided the ad wasn't in the best taste & had it taken down. They are blaming their own graphics dept. & are adamant that Rush had nothing to do with the imagery. Guess they are protecting their meal ticket.

    • DoktorZoom

      You know what Rush should do? Since he's certain that violent imagery doesn't have any effects, he should take a principled stand and insist that this billboard be put back up. And maybe buy another one right across from University Medical Center, just to show how brave he is in the face of Liberal censorship.

    • GOPCrusher

      ClearChannel. Don't retreat, RELOAD!

  • mrblifil

    I do not wish harm on anyone, and I certainly do not wish for Rush to be shot. But I am sad to know that I live in a world where the likelihood of such a thing ever happening is more minimal than his micropenis.

  • coolhandpuke

    The billboard left out a space.
    It should read New Stalk 790.

  • Jukesgrrl

    According to local Tucson news, the billboards are coming down, here at least. I hope they're being covered up with something delightfully gay.

    • Bonzos_Bed_Time

      Like a picture of Rush.

      Oh nevermind, you said delightful…

  • DoktorZoom

    Also, it's been KGUN since 1957, and the name originally was more clearly related to "old-west" stuff, as Tucson was still fairly active in the movie business then. Don't know whether the call-letter change (originally KDWI) had anything to do with the 1957 movies 3:10 to Yuma and Gunfight at the OK Corral, but I wouldn't be surprised.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see a name change sometime…these days it doesn't evoke "six shooter" so much as "six shot and killed."

  • glamourdammerung

    I thought statements like the sign were what the trolls meant when they claimed everyone was afraid of Palin/teabaggers.

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    Write to them and let them know what a great job they are doing.

  • DustBowlBlues

    Some kids shot up my mailbox but we chased down one because he dropped his telephone. Made me feel good, knowing some drunk kids were driving down my country road and shooting shit. Fucking redneck hillbillies and their inbreds.

  • ttommyunger

    "Jabber the Gut" got idea from his fellow micro-penis pal, Ted Nugent, one sunny day in Cost Rica after a long session of "hide the vienna sausage in the cabin boy". So, he's got that going for him. BTW: Arizona wouldn't know a "Decency Law" if it was shot through the brain with one.

  • BeWoot

    Does Rush know that being straight is not that big a deal? Lot's of us are straight. (In know, estimates vary, but most sources peg the non-gay population right around 82-88%, right?) Being a shooter, though, that's like, whoa … grow up, asshole.

  • SorosBot

    Now we all should be prepared to fight the real menace, the zombie menace

  • littlebigdaddy

    The worst thing is that I used to like things called "Rush." Like the band and the crazy 18th century doctor. That is now all ruined for me. (I am trying hard to be as narcissistic as the modal Merican).

  • Sassomatic

    Ah, they're taking it down. But only because whiny liberals are whining about it. Yeah, Limbaugh is always doing shit because liberals want him to.

  • OneTrueLiberal

    My husband, Franklin and I submit that this confirms Rush Limbaugh's murderous intent. Beyond all doubt.

    It is well-established that such comments, advertising, or other statements — even when they consist of hoary adages and commonplaces — have a direct causal effect on their audience, provoking the same to violence.

    On the other hand, there is no scientific basis, of any kind, to support the insane theory that equivalent comments, advertising or other statements re explicit sexual activity; depictions of violence in entertainment; drug use, etc. have any causal connection to, respectively, the rise of sexual activity in minors; the rise of social violence and crime; or drug addiction, etc.

    At least, no connection in the minds (if that is the term) of True Liberals.



    • Negropolis

      You about as funny as cancer, Neilist, and about as clever and imaginative as an accountant.

      Tits, or GTFO, "Eleanor" Rigby.

      • OneTrueLiberal

        Franklin and I deeply regret your anger, Negropolis. But your rage does not excuse your offensive attempt to use the tragedy of cancer as a humorous aside.

        Some of your fellow Wonkette TrueLiberals may be cancer survivors, or have lost a loved one to this terrible disease. Please pause to consider how your thoughtless comments may have wounded these poor souls.

        I hope that you or one dear to you is never stricken by the horror of cancer, or has to face the emotional turmoil of an Obama "death panel" review aimed at cutting off treatment for the same.

        But if you do, please remember that "The Needs of the Many Prevail Over The Needs Of The One" for TrueLiberalism to prevail.



    • alanwillingham

      Liberals seem to think they are not affected by violent language, and that they are morally superior to everyone else. That is why they immediately devolve into hate-speak when they feel they have encountered a conservative.

      As you know, it is a tenet of liberalism that conservatives are racist, inbred, rednecks who can with certainty be expected to lock and load, hop in their pickup trucks and run over whomever they can't shoot while drinking moonshine.

      Apparently they somehow can't comprehend that if any of that were true, there wouldn't be any offensive liberals..

      • OneTrueLiberal


        How DARE you state, or even imply, that it not appropriate for TrueLiberals to claim that all "conservatives are racist, inbred, rednecks who can with certainty be expected to lock and load, hop in their pickup trucks and run over whomever they can't shoot while drinking moonshine. "

        HOW dare you dispute that only TrueLiberals have opinions that matter?

        Get out of here! OUT! SCAT! When we want to hear from your kind, we'll bathe, put on some clothes, leave our parents' basements, and actually get a job requiring more intellectual horsepower and determination that asking the next customer if they "want fries with that."

        No, wait a minute. That's about as much of a job as we have the intellectual horsepower to handle.

        Instead, we'll get a grant! Or teach American History OUR way, e.g., by using Howard Zinn and Karl Marx as textbooks.



  • straighteight

    Straight shooter? That grouping looks pretty average considering he's using a 419 mm howitzer.

    Also, can we buy a competing billboard that has his photo and "PANTLOAD" written next to it? Maybe we could pitch that to a competing station.

  • Negropolis

    Rush is too school for cool, 'cause guns are so bad-ass, right? Any red-blooded American male who doesn't look at that billboard and get a stiffy from all of the bullet wounds is a gay socialist, right? That gun showed that little 9-year-old girl who was boss, right?

    Fuck off, Rush. Fuck off, you obese, bee-stung, pool boy-blowing, coke-snorting, loud-mouthed, hateful muthafucka.

    • di_da_is_alpha

      You no doubt got your T-shirt from the "Arizona for Obama's Reelection Kickoff Rally (oh, and memorial too) Extravaganza". Obama got his Oklahoma City moment. so, just what did Dupe-nik know, and when did he know it?

  • NorthStarSpanx

    If he's as good a shot as Dick Cheney and Sarah Palin, residents can breath a sigh of relief.

  • alanwillingham

    If those are bullet holes, they must have hit a name tag instead of a billboard

  • benjo765

    I very much doubt that Limbaugh has ever been able to 'shoot straight' in his entire life.

    I mean, with all that belly flab how could he even visibly aim with the darn thing…
