Your Daily Bran

Or your daily Rush Limbaugh:

In discussing a March 12 appearance on ABC's This Week by journalists Jay Carney and Claire Shipman, who are married to each other, nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh characterized their relationship as "slave owner and husband." Limbaugh, who made his comments during the March 13 broadcast of Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show, then restated: "I take it back, slave master, not slave owner." Carney is Time magazine's deputy Washington bureau chief, and Shipman is the senior national correspondent for ABC's Good Morning America..

As Media Matters has documented, Limbaugh recently referred to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) as sounding like a "screeching ex-wife." On the February 21 broadcast of his show, Limbaugh said that Supreme Court Justice David H. Souter is "a girl" and claimed that Jack Carter, son of former President Jimmy Carter, "has been castrated by the feminization of this culture."

The title of this post is my feeble attempt to justify posting about Limbaugh's misogynisms. Reading him is like adding something non-nutritious to your diet to speed things along. Though his opinions are also held by others among the wingnuts, and it's always good to know what your enemy is thinking. Or not, as the case may be.
