On Friday, Rush Limbaugh discussed Senate Democrats’ decision to destroy the historic filibuster procedure. In explaining to the audience why the filibuster mattered, Limbaugh suggested that the evils of majority rule were supposed to be overcome by the filibuster:

Quote
Every now and then, some lunatic in the group proposes to change the rule to allow women to be raped. But they never were able to get six votes for it. There were always the four women voting against it and they always found two guys. Well, the guy that kept proposing that women be raped finally got tired of it, and he was in the majority and he was one that [said], 'You know what? We're going to change the rule. Now all we need is five. And well, 'you can't do that.' 'Yes we are. We're the majority. We're changing the rule.' And then they vote. Can the women be raped? Well, all it would take then is half of the room. You can change the rule to say three. You can change the rule to say three people want it, it's going to happen…When the majority can change the rules there aren’t any.


Naturally, Limbaugh mentioning “rape” sent the left into spasms of apoplexy, with the Huffington Post labeling the comments “hideous.” Media Matters’ Todd Gregory quickly labeled the analogy, “such a perfect encapsulation of rape culture, it should be put in a museum.”

Of course, it is perfectly obvious to any honest and sentient human being that Limbaugh was condemning rape and suggesting the danger that a pure majority rule could be compatible with violation of our most basic rights. But that won’t stop the leftist media’s attempts to destroy Limbaugh by ignoring the content and context of his statements, even as they protect MSNBC host Martin Bashir for stating openly that someone should “p*ss” and “s***” in Sarah Palin’s mouth.

So which sponsor will cave first this time?  You know the left is already hitting them hard on Bookface, Twitter, and e-mail.

It may be, but Rush has a nasty habit of choosing analogies or descriptors that are negative to women. 

Could he not have chosen food or something else? 

He was off today.  Sounded as if he's fighting a cold or something, but still........he's his own worst enemy.

No I'm not.  But, then, I don't expect you to agree with me.  Did you listen to his show?  He was not himself today.

I love ya like a brother, DC, but that's baloney.

A Republican Senate is DYING to use this rule change with a Republican President. And we should.

The funny part is this is another media tweak. He is just using an analogy several Dems and media folks have used lately. For example, Bill Moyers recently compared opposition to Obamacare like being a rapist.

...speaking of which, I seem to recall that some Democrats used almost the exact same analogy when the roles were reversed during the Alito nomination. I would not be surprised if it is a verbatim from someone like Harry Reid. Time to do some digging in the archives.
