RUSH LIMBAUGH January 13, 2011: "More people applied for unemployment benefits last week after retailers shed temporary holiday employees." No kidding. "The Labor Department said today that the number of people seeking benefits jumped by 35,000 to a seasonally adjusted 445,000 for the week ending Jan. 8. It was the highest level since late October." Nowhere in this story is the word "unexpected" or "surprised," which is a first. "The increase comes after applications had fallen to their lowest levels in two years over the winter holidays. Applications usually rise in early January once the holiday season ends."

In San Francisco today I guess we can say the president's words are being ignored because there are insulting posters of Sarah Palin on a street which encourage violence against her. The president's admonition for us to be nicer to each other is not working. And ABC News: "Death Threats Against Palin Have Reached 'Unprecedented Level.'" Should Obama have specifically mentioned how wrong that is? Should he? I mean this is not some vague academic hypothesis. This is actually happening and Obama is ignoring it.

Okay. All right, cool. If that's your gig, fine.
....and now, here is Sarah Palin: "America's Enduring Strength"!

RUSH: Our previous caller, when I asked if she had seen the Wellstone Memorial, said, "Oh, yeah, I remember Bill Clinton and the tears when the camera turned to him." That was the Ron Brown Memorial. Now, the Ron Brown Memorial, this was a moment. NBC caught this on videotape, and over at our TV show, our astute and observant producers caught the one feed. After we made their feed more public than they did, they pulled it. They stopped using it. Here's what it was. Ron Brown had been killed in a plane crash in Bosnia, and he was Clinton's commerce secretary. They were all walking into the church where they were doing the memorial. They weren't walking into a gymnasium on some campus...
