Open mouth, insert foot. Repeat as necessary.
This should be the advice given to talking head and pundit extraordinaire Rush Limbaugh, whose gotten quite the reputation for saying things he really shouldn’t.
This time, his issue is with women. In a radio broadcast taking real Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine to task for potentially voting for a healthcare reform bill, Limbaugh says, “Women… dammit!”
Once again, Limbaugh, who likes to fashion himself the voice of the GOP, has proven his sexist attitudes and love for controversy that makes him anything but the Voice of the GOP. His extremist attitudes do nothing for our Party- unless you count turning off the millions and millions of female voters that make up the majority of voters.
Listen to Limbaugh’s quote here (thanks to Media Matters) and tell us below what you think: should the GOP do more to distance itself from the likes of Limbaugh?
