It looks like Media Matters has caused an invidious schism between Rush and one of his long time advertisers. In fact, Sleep Train exuviated their loyalty to Rush. Now, they see the error of their ways and wish Rush to shrive their invidious behavior and allow them to continue advertising on his show. NO WAY, says Rush. Good for him.

Letter from Rush's show to Sleep Train.

Obama is sneaky, *insidious
His policies lean toward invidious
We realize the danger
Of the fake hope and changer
And know that the man is **perfidious

*Proceeding in a gradual, subtle way, but with harmful effects: “the insidious effects of stress”.

** Of, relating to, or marked by perfidy; treacherous. See Synonyms at faithless.

But Rush’s invidious use of invective took the focus off of her invidious message and put the spotlight on her (activist) self. As I said in another thread....Pelosi gave her a microphone, Rush made her a star......

(stolen from the promo of 1987’s “can’t buy me love”, starring patrick dempsey as the geek.......”dating her made him popular, breaking up with her made him a star........”)

And what is a sleep train anyway? I don’t think of trains as a relaxing thing, I think of noisy clickety-clacking.

Dumbest name since “Airbus.”

I have a book recommendation, containing characters both delightful and invidious: Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, by Helen Simonson. The writing was outstanding and the characters well-developed.

The back story to Sleep Train and Rush is that they were failing when a little known radio talk show host needed a new bed. A mutual friend sent Rush over and he bought a bed, suggested they advertise on his show. They did and history was made.....they make billions every year now. From failing to success beyond their dreams, and this is how they treated Rush. They jump on a faux blitz of Rush and expect him to forgive and forget. They made personally insulting comments when the did this. The relationship is OVER, with Rush and his fans.

BTW, last year I read a book that came highly recommended...A Discovery of Witches. Yes, witch and vampires. The sequel comes out this summer. Warner Bros. bought the movie rights. It was surprisingly well written. I actually loved the book. Bought it for my daughter for her birthday.

He is pretty amazing, glad he got his due from the Burgh, and it is gratifying to hear him speak highly of it’s citizens. Did you watch James Neal NHL36? we love those shows at our house. it was enjoyable.

yeah it is on NHL network. The Whats up ya sieve girlies, my fave hockey bloggers, LUUUUV James Neal and so i am kept abreast of his exploits. MOST disturbing thing from the NHL36 episode on him? he’s obsessed with his hair, spends inordinate time styling it but.... HE ONLY WASHES IT ONCE PER WEEK. he said that. on national tv. once per week. Anyone who has lived with a hockey player would have to be appalled at that revelation. he plays HOCKEY, he practices DAILY, hockey boys sweat and good lord THEY STINK TO HIGH HEAVEN.
