Conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh is seen in this police booking mug shot taken on April 28, 2006. Limbaugh turned himself in to police in Florida on Friday and was charged with prescription drug fraud as part of a probe that began more than tw
Limp dick. Criminal. Misogynist.
And honorary member of the Republican
Congress, class of '94.
Dear God who gives women rape babies as a gift,

Please make it stop.

Please make the men stop telling us that rape is a gift, but voting means the end of the world as we know it. Please make them stop voting to take away our health care. And please, pretty please, make impotent gasbag and coiner of the word "feminazi" Rush Limbaugh shut the fuck up:

I mean, [the Lena Dunham ad is] insulting to women.  It again looks at women as monolithic sex machines who want to make sure they've got unending birth control pills and then a free trip to Planned Parenthood the next day, all paid for by Obama.  If I were a woman today, I would feel insulted each and every day, the way they look at women, all thinking the same way, all wanting the same things.  I think that ad -- some people look at it, they'll think it's cool, that it's hip and it's representative of the current modern day pop culture.  But I think it's an insult to women everywhere.

I mean, where the hell is Gloria Steinem?  Gloria, is this what you all have been fighting for all your lives, an ad like this, an appeal to women as sex machines?  Is that what feminazi-ism was all about?  Is that what all the equal pay stuff was all about?  Is that why you wanted to storm your way into every all-male club and all-male institution and everything that you felt you were being discriminated against, was this what you were hoping would be the fruition, the result of all of your hard work?  

Goal Thermometer

That's right. In mansplaining to women what is insulting to women, he referred to the women's movement as "feminazi-ism." Because that is totally not offensive at all.

And this is the guy who was once made an honorary member of the congressional class of '94 by, that's right, the Republican Party.

That really sums it up, doesn't it?

You know what to do. Please give $3 to each of our Daily Kos-endorsed women candidates for the House and Senate, so we can send more, better women to Congress to fight back against the Republicans' War on Women.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
