With "kids back in school" Rush talks penises and femi-nazis
It is rare for Rush to show consideration to "kids". For example, Limbaugh attacked an eight year old girl, calling out her full name, the name of her school, and the city in which she lived, telling his considerable audience that her "little skull" is "full of mush just waiting to absorb all kinds of rotgut drivel and bilge." This, because:
"Megan Schroeder rides her bike or walks to school to do her part to help the planet." [—AP Story]
(Rush has for more than two decades asserted that climate change is a liberal hoax.)
Limbaugh gave but a moment's passing thought to school-aged children after he had already begun to launch this rubbish onto our public airwaves:
"If size matters, male private parts are shrinking, according to a new Italian study on sexuality." The kids are back in school now. It's okay, it's September 20th. It's just adults out there now. "The study’s leaders claim to have bona fide research that says the average size of a penis is roughly 10 percent smaller than it was 50 years ago." And the researchers say air pollution is why. Air pollution, global warming, has been shown to negatively impact penis size, say Italian researchers. I don't buy this. I think it's feminism. If it's tied to the last 50 years, the average size of a member is 10% smaller in 50 years, it has to be the feminazis. I mean, the chickification, everything else. Give 'em time and they'll blame Bush. Give 'em time. But air pollution versus feminazis? Ha.

Limbaugh has stepped in it numerous times since the Sandra Fluke incident earlier this year. One of Limbaugh's more revealing gaffes concerned his attitude toward women having the right to vote:
When women got the right to vote is when it all went downhill, because that's when votes started being cast with emotion and maternal instincts that government ought to reflect.

Limbaugh later claimed that he was making a joke, explaining away the attack on women's rights with the statement that he was "just a little frustrated".

|The greatest threat to Rush Limbaugh's continued obnoxious bloviating is the activism of consumers, volunteers, and activists who seek to hold Rush accountable for his pervasive, raunchy hate speech by joining Flush Rush on Facebook, and other groups that use the StopRush Database to inform advertisers about where their ads are appearing.

2:57 PM PT: Some suspect — perhaps facetiously — that Rush may be afflicted by koro syndrome:
The koro syndrome is a psychiatric disorder characterized by acute anxiety and a deep-seated fear of shrinkage of the penis...
