Rush = Porn!

(Like the media can ever get enough.)

Under the flimsy guise of a conservative response, Newsweek morphs a super-sized Limbaugh into the Great and Powerful Oz, slaps a tag across his mouth clearly connotative of porn, and guarantees (ca-ching, ca-ching) he will be driving the news cycle beginning a second week in a row.

By the way, the porn allusion wouldn’t have anything to do with moving a few copies to Rush’s 72% male, 20-30 million strong audience, would it?
