The Lynching of Rush Limbaugh over S&H (Sex & Handouts)
By Wayne Allyn Root
The progressive left’s lynching of Rush Limbaugh reminds me of why conservative talk radio is successful and leftists can never duplicate that success.
For years liberals have tried to compete with conservative talk radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh, to no avail. Why is liberal talk radio an abysmal failure? Simple…talk radio is all about going to and from…WORK. People listen to talk radio in their cars during morning or afternoon drive time, to and from work. The magic ingredient leftists and progressives don’t understand is you have to appeal to people who work.
Who drives to and from work? Taxpayers! Taxpayers working to put food on the table, pay a mortgage, raise a family, and yes, pay the damn taxes. And, the vast majority of taxpayers are fiscal conservatives angry at the way government spends and squanders the tax dollars they have worked so hard to earn. That makes them fans of conservative talk radio hosts like Rush.
On the other hand, many (but not all) people sitting at home during commuter drive time are waiting for their welfare, food stamps, aid to dependent children, and other government entitlements to be delivered to them. Others, whose unemployment is running out, are plotting how to qualify for disability. These people tend to vote Democrat to keep that “Obama Money” coming their way. They are not the typical conservative talk radio listeners.
That explains why Rush Limbaugh is under assault for calling a female law student who had the audacity to demand the most insulting entitlement yet- free contraception- a bad word. Was it a bad choice of words? Yes. Rush should have just called her a “sexual freeloader.” She can have all the sex she wants…but she has no right to ask taxpayers to pay for it. That’s the only issue here. She wants S&H- “sex and handouts.” …
