Love him or hate him, sometimes you wake up in the morning or turn on the radio in the afternoon, and you just don’t have it in you to stand hearing what’s coming out of Rush Limbaugh’s mouth at that moment. For those times, the fine folks at the Federal Communications Commission are around to hear you out - even though, after 20-plus years, they haven’t done much to change his brand of airwave surfing.

In response to a FOIA request, the FCC provided 31 submissions from recent years, and they hit a lot of Limbaugh lightning rod language and lessons.

There is the bit about the shooting in South Carolina …

his biological analysis of FLOTUS …

his take on gender politics …

consent …

his creative approach to gifting …

his general attitude …

But of all of the grievances submitted about the reigning king of daytime right-wing radio, what one thing attracted nearly a third of all complainants?

His “bullsh*t.”

Literally.

That word.

From Vermont, where the complainer was forced to assume additional guilt for repeating the phrase at all…

down the East Coast …

to the heart of the Lone Star State ….

through the heartland …

all the way to California …

it was the “bullsh*t” that rang from sea to shining sea.

The talk radio tycoon renewed his contract with mainstream giant iHeartRadio last month, ensuring his spot on early afternoon airwaves for the next four years.
