Rush Limbaugh and Women’s Right to Vote

Rush Limbaugh is such a sad and pathetic man. And yet he deserves no sympathy. He has almost single-handedly destroyed civil discourse in the public forum in this country, and this is merely one more example of that fact.

Recently on his radio show, Limbaugh took a call from a man who wanted to blame Obama’s 2008 election on uninformed youth. Limbaugh interrupted him and said, ““Ehhh, I can do one better than that. When WOMEN got the right to vote is when it all went downhill. Because that’s when votes started being cast with emotion and uh, maternal instincts that government ought to reflect …….”

Rush stopped talking mid-sentence as if he’s realized what a horrible mistake he’s just made. His caller took advantage of the silence and continued talking about how young people are the ones ruining elections.

Here’s what is so sad about this. Rush wasn’t joking. Despite the fact that Limbaugh believes women are worth less than men, he will keep his women supporters. This is astounding. They will make excuses for him and continue to tune in for their daily dose of misogyny, lies and blatant hatred. These women are worse than the bloated ego-maniac. They inflate the audience numbers which pays his salary, and they vote. Even though Rush doesn’t think they should.
