Rush Limbaugh

He's the single biggest reason why people are fleeing the GOP.

I don't really need to say anything else about him.

(Actually, I could have written up a detailed post about his detestable comments, but I don't want to be in a bad mood all day, so I'll just leave it at this.)

There is a concept called the threshold effect. What this basically describes is a system where an increasing stimulus does not lead to a proportional increase in response. One might be led to conclude that the stimulus has no effect at all. Then, when some critical stimulus level is finally reached, the response erupts. Change is drastic and sudden.

I think American women (and all the men who support our freedom, sexual and otherwise) are collectively reaching our threshold and I think idiots like Rush are getting us there faster.

Yes, we've seen the threshold effect occur in many different areas. The "Arab Spring", for one. The fall of Communism in eastern Europe, too. The rise of broadcast censorship in America when Janet Jackson showed her boob during the Super Bowl. All it takes sometimes is the environment to be ready for change and one event can trigger it.

With Rush, we're hopefully going to see these intolerant right wing assholes loose their advertising revenue and end up doing a podcast from their basements.
