UPDATE: As of today, 45 advertisers have dropped Rush Limbaugh’s show, and there might be more in sight, according to the Rachel Maddow Show blog. And as if his lame “apology” wasn’t enough, he keeps burying himself deeper in national contempt by attacking a young author – you guessed, it, a woman – by calling her a

“babe”, an “authorette” and, more broadly, one of “these single white women.”

and then telling his audience,

“What is it with all of these young single white women, overeducated — doesn’t mean intelligent.”

Well, gee, Rush, thanks, overeducated — I’m blushing already. I don’t know what you meant, but I’ll take it as a compliment. At least it’s quite a step up from “slut”, “prostitute” or “feminazi”.

And then Bill Maher started defending him, sort of, saying liberals look petty by not rushing to forgive him, according to Slate. I think he was just getting nervous when the conversation started getting semi-deep and people started to wonder about him calling Sarah Palin a “cunt”. Sorry, Bill, it’s all fair game now.
