Rush Limbaugh is in the news today. Again. Apparently he has offended someone, and I for one am shocked at that. No, not really. Limbaugh is offensive. Everything he says and does offends somebody, somewhere. Rather than getting all huffy and pissed off every time he does it, here's an idea; STOP LISTENING TO HIM! I'm certain he has said something in the past that somehow relates to me (dumb blondes, young moms, women in general) but you know what? I've never heard it so I don't care. And even if I did hear him say something offensive towards me, I wouldn't take it personally. He is a shock jock, he says things simply to get a rise out of people and stir up controversy. And by people paying gobs of attention to him because they were his most recent "victims", his stock goes up. He gets more airtime, more money, more fame. And who cares what he says anyway? There are people that agree with him and you know what? Those people are entitled to their own opinions. But if you don't agree with him then ignore him. It's really just that easy.
I am so tired of people playing the "poor me" card. It's stupid to get bent out of shape because of what someone who has never met you says about a general population of people. It isn't like he picks out a specific unknown citizen and makes fun of them. He makes broad generalizations, most of which people with an average sized brain can see through. If he were to say "AnnieD is stupid and her blog sucks" I might be a little irritated, but then of course my traffic would increase by 2000% and I'd wind up having to thank him. People need to stop taking everything so personally. Instead of talking about how hurt your feelings are and how insensitive and racist Rush Limbaugh is, why don't you grow a pair of balls and tell him to fuck off? The uber liberals in this country seem to be lacking in cajones in general, maybe they need to find a way to get them back. Fight fire with fire. Or better yet, ignore him and watch him fume over the lack of attention. Either way, don't let him or anyone else you disagree with control your reactions. Quit caring about what 1 person's opinion is and focus on what you know is true.
