      With All of His Advertisers Gone, Rush Limbaugh Becomes A Right Wing Welfare Bum

      Rush Limbaugh's advertisers have deserted him, and the only way his radio remains financially sustainable is by being bankrolled by right wing organizations. In short, Rush is now taking handouts. After the news that 48 of Cumulus Media's top 50 advertisers have requested that their ads no longer appear on Limbaugh's show, the other shoe dropped.

      Rush Limbaugh has not seen 12 Years a Slave, but he opined anyway on Monday that the only reason it won Best Picture at the Oscars was because it had the "magic word" of "slave" in the title. Limbaugh mocked the "self-satisfaction" of the awards ceremony and said that unlike at past Oscars, there wasn't any "demonstrable political preaching" from anyone.

      'What Took Them So Long?' Limbaugh Celebrates Piers Morgan Cancellation

      Rush Limbaugh welcomed today's news of Piers Morgan losing his primetime CNN show after three years, but what he wanted to know was "what took them so long." Limbaugh mocked Morgan's accent, saying that while most British accents sound "brilliant and intelligent and worldly and sophisticated" to Americans," Morgan "couldn't even pull that off" and just came across as grating.

      Limbaugh Responds to Obama Calling Him Out: He's 'Delusional' to Blame Me for Gridlock

      Rush Limbaugh is used to hearing President Obama call him out by name to decry partisanship in Washington, so when he heard the president did it again, he admitted it isn't any big deal anymore to hear it. That being said, he did think Obama was being delusional to think he's to blame in any way.
