1.
From the eponymous company line of products. Saying "Sharper Image" before an item automatically makes it high-end. Usually, it denotes a high-cost but low-value product that, while appeling to rich folk, those who think they're rich, or those who want to live the high-life, was nevertheless manufactured in China like every other product common people buy.

Since the company filed for bankruptcy, the Sharper Image brand has significantly lost appeal, and is now-a-days synonymous with wasting money on over-priced goods.
"I got these Trump Steaks off Sharper Image, they cost me $100 a pound so they must be delicious."
"Fully endorsed by Donald Trump.... Nice! We're gonna make a great impression at the Young Republicans meeting."

3.
What results when easily-herded people gather to protest an issue that is not clearly understood by them. They make unintelligent, or just plain non-sensical "arguments". In a dumbonstration you can see people holding up signs as illogical as "Don't Kill Grandma," or "Get Your Gov't Hands OFF my Medi-Care."

Dumbonstrations are usually, but not always, results of lobbyists or companies with significant interest to push. These vested interests begin an astroturf effort, and recruit people who don't think critically about the issues. Consequently, what should have been a one-voiced demonstration of opposition to a clearly-defined topic devolves into a series of random rants and rambling with no sense of cohesion. Hence, you get comments that vary from the politically incorrect to the downright racist– reflecting the attitudes of the people that comprise the dumbonstration.
A certain non-news TV personalty is encouraging people to gather for what he calls "Tea Bag Protests." These usually devolve into a large, muddled dumbonstration.

5.
1) One of many meaningless, substance-free terms created by Rush Limbaugh and parroted by his ditto heads meant to deride the press and scapegoat mistakes by conservatives.

While Rushbo himself never actually defines it (nor can any of his cult devotees), it is implied to describe shallow, sensationalist, sound-byte-heavy news coverage á la Fox News.

2) Scandalous, short attention-span, and often controversial "news" that mostly cover-up, and/or spin for political purposes.

3 ) The Rush Limbaugh Show
Ironically, while constantly blaming the U.S.'s short-comings on the "drive-by media," Rush Limbaugh is in fact the figurehead of that type of news coverage.
