Profiles in Pusillanimity

Pusillanimous: what a truly elegant way to say “gutless”.  I really love that word; sadly, opportunities to use it are few and far between, since “gutless” or “spineless” or “cowardly” are usually sufficient.

But not this week.  Various high-profile Republicans were recently asked if they’d repudiate the brainlessly misogynist trash-talk of their Intellectual & Spiritual Leader and Titular Head, Garbagemouth McPigboy, and their flaccid, mealy-mouthed responses were nothing less than pusillanimous:

John Boehner called Limbaugh’s spittle-flecked rant “inappropriate”.  Um, no: getting drunk at the office Christmas party is “inappropriate” — the twisted attacks on Sandra Fluke were more akin to getting drunk at the office Christmas party and taking a dump in the punch bowl. Several magnitudes (or maybe even orders of magnitude) more inappropriate than “inappropriate”.

Mitt Romney, the Invertebrate Who Would Be King, said “I’ll just say this, which is, it’s not the language I would have used.”  Presumably this means Mitt was okay with the insults, just not the delivery.  Fail!

Rick Santorum made some weird rambling remark about how Limbaugh was “being absurd”, like an “entertainer”.  And?  And nothing, which also suggests that he didn’t really have a problem with it.  Not that I’d expect any less from someone who’s on the record as wanting to ban contraception altogether.

To the surprise of absolutely nobody, not one of these baffled little pencil-necked creeps could bring himself to say the PigMan was Wrong and Dumb and a disgrace to the GOP and the conservative movement.

And that, my fine friends, is exactly what’s Wrong and Dumb about the GOP and the conservative movement.

UPDATE:  At least someone is standing up to El Pigbo’s raging assholishness.  Advertisers have started a mass-exodus from his show, and now a couple of radio stations are dropping it completely.  This thing has legs: long, lean, muscular, marathon-running legs, unlike those flabby stumps the Pigman autoambulates himself around on.  Ya think?

(Edited to fix insanely bad use of the phrase “orders of magnitude”. Proofread!)

    I wonder if the fleeing advertisers will even matter…let’s face it, he is continuing his rants, and lovin’ the publicity..I would venture to say that his numbers are probably up because of the “scandal”…but what matters are the Dem’s numbers..up, way way up..
    Remember Glen Beck, or Dreck, as i always referred to him? Yeah, anyone out there remember him? This human stain Limbaugh will also eventually slink off to his cesspool and drown himself..hope we don’t have to wait too much longer…

      no, no, no! Doncha remember? Blubbering Beck is Limbaugh’s “spawn”. His word, not mine. In some NBC interview awhile back, Limbaugh really told the host (forget her name) that he “spawned” Glenn Beck.

      As for Santorum and Romney, I bet they were just itching to scream their Rush Limbaugh a great big “thanks!” from the roof tops. As Rachel Maddow said not long ago–all of the GOP candidates, including Romney are “to the right of Mississippi”– which, of course, is deemed the most conservative state of the union.

        I don’t know… this may be some kind of tipping point where even conservatives say “No More!”
        It will be interesting to see how it affects the vote tonight (or if it does at all)

      It’s hard to say whether 8 or 10 or 20 advertisers dropping the show will make any difference.
      As someone who used to make these kinds of decisions, I know that there’ll always be advertisers who want the audience if it fits their product profile. I actually feel a little sorry for the media buyers at the agencies of the clients who are pulling the plug on Rush: the clients will expect the same kind of audience delivery through some other means, and it will be difficult if not impossible to do. Oh well, that’s where you have to get creative :cool:

    Jon Stewart ripped into Fatblob tonight. “loud and extremely gross” He also mentioned the GOP candidates milk-toast responses.

    I think the GOP cretins are too beholden to Rush. One word on his radio program could sink them. So pathetic that such a despicable person has so much power. If only there were photos of Rush with a farm animal or something…

      :shock: :lol:
      Such photos probably exist, but the Drugster keeps them under lock & key in the bathroom for those excruciating all-day jerkoff sessions. (Just finding it probably takes all morning…)

    It must be sad for the dildoheads who love them some Chubby Druggy™ when he put his squiggly tail between his hams and fake apologized for screwing the pooch and jumping the shark.

    Since he’s been spanked on his ample rump, he squeals victimhood like the piggy he is.

      His hams! :lol:
      Piggy McOxy’s “apology” was a classic: I especially like the way he managed to go all bizarro-world and blame the whole incident on…

      Liberals! :lol:
