Colbert: Rush Limbaugh Is A Prostitute Who Will Do Anything With His Mouth For Cash

Stephen Colbert had a field day with Rush Limbaugh and his advertisers dropping one by one after making the horrible nasty remarks about Sandra Fluke on his radio show over the course of three days. I liked his little montage of Limbaugh's offensive remarks that he did not feel the need to apologize for since it laid bare just how hollow that apology was, and the "takes one to know one" comment as far as just who exactly is a prostitute here, since Limbaugh only "apologized" once it looked like it might start costing him money.

Like a lot of others before him have already done, Colbert hit him for obviously not understanding how birth control pills work since he claimed it costs women more money if they have more sex and said "Rush knows what he's talking about because every time he's had sex with a woman, he's had to slip her a pill first." Ouch.

Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum weren't spared either after both of their really lame responses to Limbaugh's ugliness. You know, it's really just astounding that in a year when the GOP looked like they couldn't possibly find another group of people to alienate, offend and turn off to the point that they might not ever vote for any of them again, they managed to find another two... almost all women and everyone who likes having sex and doesn't want to be having a child every year or so in the process.

I grew up going to Catholic schools and remember all too well just how many huge families there were in my parish decades ago. I went to grade school with kids that had ten, twelve, thirteen, sixteen and seventeen children in their families because their parents actually listened to the church's advice on using birth control. If Limbaugh and Santorum and their ilk are stupid enough to think they can shame anyone into going back to those times, they're out of their minds.

I'll be happy to see Limbaugh off the air because this kind of trash really should not be allowed to be broadcast across our airways, but if they want to let him keep talking, the Republicans are just asking for a world of pain from this.
