Here we go again. Rush Limbaugh, on July 3rd, said on his radio show that “When women got the right to vote is when it all went downhill. Because that's when votes started being cast with emotion and maternal instinct that government ought to reflect." Limbaugh later clarified – probably to appease his dwindling number of sponsors – that he was “kidding” and “joking”.
All joking aside, we’re not really that surprised at his misogynistic vitriol anymore. Just over four months ago he called Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke a slut for advocating for birth control. It’s time once and for all for Rush to figure out that women are not going anywhere. Join EMILY’s List and tell Rush Limbaugh that his views are just plain wrong for America.
