Rush Limbaugh Helps Women See The Light

I listened to a few minutes of Rush Limbaugh's show yesterday. (Sometimes I like to torture myself by seeing what the "other side" is up to.) I happened to hear this call from a woman named Renee who was thanking Rush for helping her to change her opinions, and since the transcript of the call is featured prominently on Limbaugh's website right now, I get to share it with all of you. (Emphasis mine.)

RUSH: Renee in Orland, Maine. I'm glad you called. Welcome to the EIB Network.

CALLER: Hi, Rush. This is so great to talk to you. I'm a little nervous so just bear with me.

RUSH: Sure.

CALLER: I really just want to thank you. I've listened for two years, and with help from my husband and from you I have learned so much. And I want to admit today on air that I had some liberal views that I am just totally ashamed of, looking back on my career as health teacher in Massachusetts. And I really just want to send a message out today that teachers, you know, we're responsible for the kids in the schools a lot of times and what we're teaching them;and, you know, pushing a liberal agenda on children is shameful. I've learned so much about conservatism from you that looking back, I just can't believe some of the things that I was teaching my students, and also encouraging them with the liberal agenda.

RUSH: You must have a tremendous amount of guilt.


CALLER: I do. (giggles)

RUSH: Given what you now think versus what you thought back then. When did you first discover this program?

CALLER: Well, my husband and I moved to Maine two years ago and they have you right on an FM station and I just was floating around one day and I said, "Hey, Steve, have you listened to Rush?" and he's like, "Yeah, I've listened to him before." My husband's in the military so we just love you. (giggles)

RUSH: Well, thank you very much. It's a great call.

CALLER: Oh, thanks. One other thing to let you know. In January this year we had our first Rush Baby, and my husband is probably going to kill me right now because no one else knows but except for him and I that we're expecting our second Rush Baby. So this is big news.

RUSH: So you are making a national announcement that only your husband knows. Your husband does know the baby is coming?

CALLER: Yes, he found out yesterday.

RUSH: And now the nation knows that Renee in Orland, Maine, is having her second Rush Baby.

CALLER: Yes.

RUSH: What a way to announce it.

CALLER: Thanks. My mom's going to kill me. (giggling)

RUSH: (laughing)

CALLER: But I had to tell you first.

Ditching your own views in favor of the ones that your husband and Rush Limbaugh want you to have...can you think of any better path to success for a woman? And you've got to love the fact that Rush's first reaction to Renee's "confession" was to jump into condescending mode and tell her how much guilt she should feel for her past liberal sins.

Since Renee says that she was a health teacher, I guess we can assume that the 'shameful liberal agenda' that she now regrets pushing on her students has something to do with sex education. Personally, I'd feel more guilty if I had to teach some kind of abstinence-only program and I knew that I was denying my students the kind of comprehensive and medically accurate information that could help them make better choices about their health and sexuality. But I don't listen to Rush Limbaugh, so don't go by me. I wonder how Renee can even sleep at night thinking about all of the students who didn't get pregnant and protected themselves from STDs thanks to her shameful health class.

Now, we need to talk about this "Rush babies" thing. I mean, really? I already knew that a lot of Limbaugh fans call themselves "dittoheads" (as in, ditto to all of Rush's opinions and everything that he says), but there are actually people out there who are so into him that they refer to their children as Rush babies? Unless maybe this is just some show lingo that I don't know about, and it means babies that were conceived while their parents were listening to Rush Limbaugh's...ew, okay, I can't even think about that anymore, moving on. (And never mind that "Rush Baby On Board!" graphic, which makes it seem like it means babies fathered by Rush himself.) The whole idea is just creepy. And it was funny because just a few minutes before taking the call from Renee, Rush was complaining about school children being "indoctrinated" with "Obama chants". Let's just pause for a minute and imagine the massive fit that Rush would throw if liberals were going around talking about being pregnant with "Obama babies" or, for that matter, "Olbermann babies" or "Maddow babies".

So, in conclusion, Rush Limbaugh can still suck it.

Hey, at least he didn't play any abortion sound effects when hanging up this time. Nothing says respect for women like comparing a dropped call to an abortion.

............

...wow.....

Anyone else having flashbacks to Katherina's speech at the end of "The Taming of the Shrew"?

Scary.

Professor Chaos said...

Jeezus! This Renee in Maine makes me want to cry. She sounds like she has a form of Stockholm Syndrome.

Kala said...

I was totally with you until the end. Why the "suck it" jab, along with all that "suck it" apparel? That phrase has some serious rape/homophobic undertones. Because what is more powerful than demanding you perform a sexual act on me? And what is more reviled than a man performing a sex act that I frame as degrading? Please consider removing those products. We can do better than that with our critiques of Rush.

This woman has gone insane and now she's breeding? Great.

anitakay said...

Seriously, that sounds like satire. Wow, I can't believe that anyone would thank Rush for opening her eyes to her wrongful liberal ways.

Mad Dan Eccles said...

It's the pride of the "dittoheads" that's always bothered me about Rush.

It's much like saying "I hereby renounce my right to independent thought", which is, yes, very much like the end of "The Taming of the Shrew".

Niki said...

Just another thought - why is it that Rush gets to laugh while his female caller is reduced to giggling? I wondered if that was from the RL website or something EvilSlutopia did (although I sincerely doubted the latter) so I linked over to his website and realized there is a bit of the transcript chopped out on Evil Slutopia and they use those terms a couple more times. Every single time, Rush gets to "laugh" and Renee has to "giggle." What the hell is with that?

I can't stop vomiting. But where I live, I see a shocking amount of this kind of subservient renunciation. It really freaks me out. I have had women tell me how "freeing" it is to succumb to their husband's will. *shudder*

Kala - We don't agree that the phrase 'suck it' always has to have a homophobic or violent/sexist connotation, and that's not the way that we intend it. But we will take your viewpoint into consideration.

"A person that grew up listening to Rush Limbaugh, probably because their parents did, and therefore they are conservatives themselves. This is a theory to explain the ever increasing number of conservative youngsters in high school and colleges in America."

The Urban Dictionary definition for 'Rush Baby,' and the only one that popped up.

I know this is an old post, but I've been browsing your blog for awhile and I've fallen in love and agree with a lot of what you have to say.
