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.“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.
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.
