Why No Fathers in TV Commercials?


RUSH:  This is Gary in West Palm Beach.  Great to have you on the program, sir.  Hello.

CALLER:  Hey, Rush, I love and respect you.  I just want to let you know a few things.  First of all, I'm a couple years younger than you, and on August 14th, I celebrated 25 years in business right alongside with you, and I've been listening to you in my headphones ever since, and you keep me going for 25 years.  I really appreciate that.

RUSH:  Congratulations.  Thank you much.

CALLER:  Yeah, and I only live like 20 miles from you, too, so if you ever want to go bass fishing I'd love to take you.

RUSH:  Cool.

CALLER:  Yeah.  Listen, you turned me on to Breaking Bad, and I was watching the TV last night and the night before and there was a commercial that came on, and this has nothing to do with race, but it had some children at a football park practicing about safety, and they had it looked like a single mother that brought the child to the park, and then after the commercial, it showed the mother walking away holding the child's hand by herself, and I didn't know if she's divorced or married or whatever, but couldn't they have put a mother and a father walking away with the child?

RUSH:  No.  Because, see, that's what's normal.  It's not fair for everybody to have a mother and father.  And since a lot of people don't, you can't humiliate them by depicting a kid with a mother and father 'cause a kid without one of the two watching would have feelings hurt.  And the left is promoting single motherhood, Gary.  Single motherhood is a cause celebre in the Democrat Party.  The single mother is a heroine.  She's a victim of a typical run away, worthless husband, blah, blah. She's got to be celebrated and a halo put above her.  Your instincts are right on the money when you watched that spot.
