The fat dope addict is in a difficult place these days, but I doubt he’s worried about it.

For one thing, he’s gone so far off the deep end that I will openly speculate on whether or not he’s on something-and I believe he IS, as someone who has been monitoring him for 2 decades. For another, the advertisers were never the point. The fat dope addict is there to get the Geritol set to wheel and walker themselves to the polls, to vote for Rushpubliscums. That’s been his mission for a long time now. His mission is NOT, and will not be, to sell advertising. The people who own him (Willard….. Willard…..) know what they’re buying.

It has been nearly two weeks since Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a “slut” and in the age of the 24-hour news cycle, that is virtually an eternity.

Yet the outrage over the conservative talk radio host’s remarks is still making headlines, spawning activist attacks and causing headaches for advertisers.

Premiere Networks, the radio group that syndicates the Rush Limbaugh Radio Show, pulled all of its barter ads — which run at all hours, not just during Premiere Network programming– from the group’s affiliated stations.

The company would not say whether the suspension, which runs from March 12 through March 23, was in response to the Limbaugh backlash, but the only two companies whose ads are exempted from the hiatus are LifeLock and Lear Financial, both of which have publicly said they will not pull their ads from Limbaugh’s show.

That’s fine. I have always found LifeLock to be sort of slimy anyway, and have often wondered how much business they are drumming up for themselves. Their dedication to the fat dope addict doesn’t really do anything to put aside my fears. Fears….. that’s what the fat dope addict and LifeLock both thrive on, so it makes sense for the two of them to stay together.

Speaking of slimy….. if the National Enquirer can be trusted (and sometimes they can,) the fat dope addict may be on the verge of shedding yet another beard, which will presumably leave him free to hop on the Gulfstream for more “fishing” trips to Puerto Plata. He uses little blue pills as bait, you know.

Women declare war on Rush Limbaugh for calling a young law student a “slut” and a prostitute,” and now his own wife Kathryn is jumping on the bash-Rush bandwagon!

She’s furious at the 61-year-old con­servative firebrand and threatened to walk out of their marriage if he keeps up his trash talk, say insiders.

The bombastic broadcaster lost at least 50 sponsors after he opened fire on Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke for telling a congressional com­mittee that health insurance should cover birth control.

During his bizarre on-air ti­rade, Limbaugh even suggested that Fluke make sex tapes that could be watched online.

Rush’s big mouth has caused a rift in his fourth mar­riage, and sources say he’s now running for cover from 35-year-old Kathryn, a Florida event plan­ner.

After an outpouring of out­rage from both the left and right, he issued a limp apol­ogy, saying: “I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situ­ation.”

But that didn’t stem the tide of criticism, and his beautiful wife of less than two years was swept up in the controversy, having to endure rebukes from some of her closest friends.

“Kathryn is fit to be tied,” said a pal. “She feels as if she’s be­ing tarred and feathered with the same brush that people are using on her hus­band. She really let him have it.

“She said she’s become a social pariah because of his hot-headed, heedless comments and warned him in no uncertain terms that he’d better keep his trap shut and stop using words like ‘slut’ for any woman!”

Actually, Kathryn, it better be YOU who keeps her mouth shut. Rush has shed many a beard before you, and he’ll have no trouble finding himself another beard, if it comes to that. I’m guessing that whatever secret agreement you and he have about how many years you must remain together is still in force, or you’d have fled already. We know that. If you walk out early, you might be walking away from a big payout. So sit tight for just a little while longer. After all, it isn’t like you have to sleep with the pig.

No, it sure isn’t.
