Credited with inventing the family sitcom, a successful, decade-spanning career in television and radio, author of over 10,000 scripts, and a mother on-screen and off, Gertrude Berg is "the most famous woman in America you've never heard of."
I know this week's Douchebag Decree
doesn't come out until tomorrow, but I thought we could take a minute
to prepare for it by discussing an O.G. Douchebag who has made some new
gender waves over the past few days: Rush Limbaugh.
Limbaugh (a.k.a. Sir Douche-yness) has noticed a (gasp!) gender gap in
his approval ratings as of late, and is planning to host a women's summit
in order to figure out what he can do to get some ladies in his corner
(you know, where he can better explain our shortcomings to us). An
actual quote from rushlimbaugh.com:
want some of these women to start telling me what it is I must do to
close the gender gap -- or, if not what it is I must do to close the
gender gap, what it is I've done that has caused the gender gap... What
could I do to attract a higher favorability rating among more women in
America? I own the men, and what must I do now to own women? And who
better to ask than women? Including some of those who may agree that
that I'm unfavorable. So stand by for that.
know you are standing by right this minute with suggestions for good
ol' Rush on how he might go about "owning" more women, so read on for
more info and to pitch in your two cents!
