How is that not blatant hypocrisy?
Actually, I'm calling you a narrow-minded partisan because of your right-wing ignorance included with nearly every post. But really, this is no exception.
We're talking about Rush, and you go, "OH OH OH but what about this other, local jock?" as if we care. Naturally, you're doing this because Sly is perceived to be "liberal".
No one gives a shit about Sly. Go ahead and start a boycott. I don't listen to his station or his show, my friends and acquaintances don't, and to be honest, I wasn't sure he was still on the air until you mentioned him. I don't see him quoted in local media, and I don't hear local progressive pundits using him for a reference.
The reason we're talking about Rush Limbaugh is his large, national audience of fans too stupid
to realize that the diarrhea spewing from his upper orifice has little to nothing to do with truth or morality. He has a decades-long history of dumbing down the state of political discourse in this country to the point where Fox News can come along and bill themselves as "fair and balanced", and where national Republican leaders practically lick his boots in reverence.
His very existence on our public airwaves reduces our country's collective IQ year after year. I will rejoice the day he is off the air, for whatever reason.
