Rush Limbaugh, STFU

What an ass, and not in a good way.

Rush Limbaugh hopes that Barack Obama fails. Hey Rush, if he fails our country continues to fail and also, newsflash: clearly how we’ve been doing things doesn’t work. So stop pushing your agenda and just get behind the man we have elected. Until he gives you a reason to detract from his efforts, can you just please shut the hell up for a bit. How about for a little OxyContin?

Microsoft Makes Some Cuts

Not a huge surprise here, but Microsoft is cutting up to 5,000 jobs in the next year and a half, or 5.5% of its global workforce, citing further deterioration of global economic conditions.

The company also posted lower fiscal second-quarter earnings that missed analysts’ forecasts.

Microsoft will slash 1,400 positions immediately, with the rest of the cuts coming by June 2010. The company said it will save about $1.5 billion in operating expenses and $700 million in 2009 capital expenditure.
