Politically Speaking, What A Week

The past week has generated some interesting banter around the world of politics.
First, there was Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum (going up against Michigan native Mitt Romney) blathering about how President Barack Obama is a 'snob' for wanting to give young people the chance to go to college.
Santorum himself had the chance to go to college before eventually winding up in the U.S. Senate for twelve years.
 In 2006, Pennsylvania voters overwhelmingly threw his ass out of office in the election, where he lost by a whopping 18 percentage points to Bob Casey.
Then there was Romney (the ultimate flip-flopper) changing his position at least two or three times on the 'Blunt Amendment' to the Health Care Reform law regarding contraception (among other items) when it comes to women's health.
He claims he didn't quite understand the question when it was posed to him.
Yeah, right!
How about the death of Andrew Breitbart, the right wing internet blogger?
This guy was miserable it seemed as he continually hounded and howled at the Occupy Wall Street protesters in recent weeks.
Breitbart was just 43 years old and suffered from an apparent coronary disease that took his life this past Thursday.
Let's just leave it at that regarding the right wing hack.
But the topper of them all was RUSH LIMBAUGH, that fat tub of goo heard by millions on a daily basis over America's radio airwaves.
 He called a young woman named Sandra Fluke, who is a student at Georgetown University Law School in D.C. a 'slut' and a 'prostitute' after she testified on behalf of contraception regarding women's health care recently in a Congressional committee hearing in the nation's capitol.
Really Rush, a slut?  A prostitute?
This just goes to show what a complete asshole Limbaugh is.
Maybe he should be FIRED the way radio talk show host Don Imus was a few years ago when he called the black women on the Rutgers basketball team 'nappy headed hoes'.
Perhaps a suspension is in order rather than a firing for the fat bastard that is Limbaugh.
Radio talk show host Ed Schultz (also of The Ed Show on MSNBC) was suspended from his own show last year when he called fellow political talker (on the radio) Laura Ingraham a slut. So why isn't radio giant Clear Channel doing something about the Limbaugh rant?
In fact, Schultz voluntarily took the suspension in reaction from the right to his remarks about Ingraham.
Applause was in order to Schultz for his actions on the matter as he manned up to his error and now continues onward in the political talk arena.
I stand by Schultz for his actions (that is Ed Schultz and myself in the picture)  and his witty commentary on a daily basis.
'Big Ed' is for the people of the United States of America.
Limbaugh is a complete tool for the right wing corporate fascists that hate America and especially President Obama.
How this guy remains on the radio is beyond any reasonable comprehension.
But what a week it was and it will continue to get interesting as the gasoline prices continue to soar well over $4.00 a gallon this spring and early summer.
Thanks you nitwits on Wall Street for the speculation on future oil prices in the God damn "global economy" that continues to drive those GAS PRICES up and up.
In the meantime, Heftyinfo will keep observing and only hope that things will reach a calmer demeanor politically speaking in the near future... but don't hold your breath on that happening.
