Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Rush Limbaugh has been working really hard to lower his own bar this week when discussing the gay marriage debate.  

So far the right wing talk radio homophobe has compared gay marriage to marrying his couch, associated it with bestiality, and even linked it with pedophilia.  

Today, for good measure, Limbaugh threw in an anal rape joke.  Speaking about Republican desire to move on to other issues, Limbaugh said the GOP wants to "put gays behind us" before adding, "is that really where you want them?"

Since you brought it up, Rush, let's go ahead and unpack that question.

You're saying that if a gay man was standing behind you, he might be seized with an uncontrollable desire to have anal sex with you against your will.
Seriously?

This is the kingmaker of the GOP.  

This is the man whose bags were carried by President George HW Bush when he was a guest at the White House in 1992.  

This man earned an apology from RNC Chairman Michael Steele after Steele called him "incendiary" (Limbaugh had suggested Steele should kill himself for doing such a shitty job).  

Then presidential candidate Rick Santorum referred to a visit to Limbaugh's hometown as like "visiting Mecca."

A bust of this man now stands in the Missouri Capitol alongside those of Harry Truman and George Washington Carver, as if he were a proud part of Missouri history rather than just a skidmark on its undies.

And his contribution to the debate over the Supreme Court determining the future of marriage in the United States is anal rape jokes.

If the GOP is serious about turning over a new leaf, they need to run away from this guy as fast as they can.
