About the Limbaugh-Being-A-Sexist-Jerk-Thing

You know, I actually take heart from this whole episode. Yes, Limbaugh is a sexist jerk, and yes, what he said was horrible. Watching advertisers flee from his show, though, has been awesome. Because the thing is, we will always have bad actors in our society, and there’s not a whole lot we can do about that except stop listening to them. When we stop listening to them, they will eventually go away. At least this time we have generally reacted to Rush with outrage and not ambivalence.
