Rush Limbaugh (kinda) apologizes for calling a woman a slut, and does so by explaining that birth control is somehow a conversation about “sexual recreational activities.”

Talk about not getting it. Amazing how arrogant someone who can’t get pregnant can be about birth control.

  1. A group of students asked me over the weekend, “Does Rush Limbaugh seriously not understand how birth control works?” I replied, “Do you think any woman likes Rush Limbaugh enough to explain how her cycle works?”

    It was a joke, but I have no doubt that Rush truly is that stupid. What’s worse is that I’m sure he doesn’t care. He’s always struck me as a dangerous combination of stupidity and self-confidence. When I first heard his show in 1991 or thereabouts, I was amazed at how dumb it sounded, and even more amazed when it became a nationwide phenomenon.
