    Limbaugh slammed for comparing Sotomayor to a housekeeper

    “I think I’m going to send Sotomayor and her club a bunch of vacuum cleaners to help them clean up after their meetings,” Limbaugh sneered.


    Mark Silva, blogging at The Swamp, was quick to catch the sexist and racist implications in Limbaugh’s remark. “Leave it to Rush Limbaugh, the golden voice of radio, to liken the president’s nominee for the Supreme Court and her professional friends to a bunch of housemaids,” he commented.
    Jeez, political correctness run amok, and the same people bashing Limbaugh are the ones who referred to Harriet Meiers as Bush's cleaning lady when she was up for nomination to SCOTUS.

    Look, folks. I thought the Bush cleaning lady joke was funny, and guess what? I think this is funny too. I have no axe to grind here. I think Limbaugh is a pompous gas bag who isn't worth the bandwidth he uses. But lighten up here, people. This was funny. When you let political correctness stand in the way of having a good laugh at someone else's expense, then you will most likely die before your time from either exploding head syndrome or terminal hypocrisy.

    I want to hear Rush debate Sotomayor on any legal argument of his choosing.....then we will find out who needs a vacuum cleaner, and I am betting it will be the gas bag...

    If people gave me this much attention and ratings every time I said something outrageous, you can bet your ass I'd be saying as many outrageous things as possible as often as possible. Outrage and sensationalism is Limbaugh's bread and butter.

    Geez, speaking of political correctness run amok, since when are the rest of us supposed to find Rush's remarks funny, just because you do?

    I've never been fond of "humor" that comes with a mean streak or less than subtle insults, which seems to be Rush's stock in trade (at least when he's running off at the mouth about anyone to the left of Attila the Hun).

    well you know, Rush as a white man, can not be as sensative as a latino woman from the bronx, right.
