Rush Limbaugh, explaining last Thursday why there’s no Republican war on women.
Shorter Limbaugh: “We buy you sluts diamonds and dinner! What more do you ungrateful feminazis want?!”
Ah, I see. So bullheaded restrictions on reproductive rights, opposing the Violence Against Women Act, not supporting the Lilly Ledbetter Act, etc… All that is perfectly fine because Republicans buy diamonds for women they’re dating, AMIRITE?!
And yes, Rush. The more you keep running your mouth like this, the more you help Democrats. Democrats would love to focus on the economy, but when the Blunt Amendment is offered before a jobs bill, it’s a little hard.
Rush, you’ve been paid to say terrible shit about ethnic and racial minorities, women, the GLBTQ community, and liberals in general for nearly 30 years.
We’re paying attention now.
Oh, and P.S.: Not all Republicans marry women. Please see Log Cabin Republicans.
Pictured above is an earlier version of the current cover of Bloomberg Businessweek. Richard Turley, the publication’s Creative Director (who is also on Tumblr), explains why his favorite version was scrapped:
We tried two versions of our planes screwing cover. This was the other option which I really want to show people. I love it - probably more than I love the cover we went for. Love the woman covering her child’s eyes and the people going crazy in the control tower. But we thought (i think rightly) that the simplicity of the clouds cover made for a more direct, impactful cover.
You can also see that we were messing around with the livery on the front of the planes, trying to carve out some mouth shapes.. which didnt really work.
And this was before we added ‘romantic light’ to the scene…
