Limbaugh opens mouth, inserts foot

(Ed.'s note: from Wonkette.com)
Limbaugh's Rules of Order: We Couldn't Have Put It Better Ourselves
We'd been puzzling over what to say about the news of American soldiers humiliating and torturing Iraqi prisoners. We felt we should say something; after all, there's (simulated) ass-fucking involved. But, you know, torture. Where are the laughs? Then Rush Limbaugh put it all in perspective, after a caller remarked that the "stack [of] naked men" was "like a college fraternity prank."

RUSH: Exactly. Exactly my point! This is no different than what happens at the skull and bones initiation and we're going to ruin people's lives over it and we're going to hamper our military effort, and then we are going to really hammer them because they had a good time. You know, these people are being fired at every day. I'm talking about people having a good time, these people, you ever heard of emotional release? You of heard of need to blow some steam off?
Of course. That's how we like to unwind at the end of a hard day ourselves. Some soft music, a cocktail and some simulated ass-fucking. Oh, I'm sorry: Forcing someone else into simulated ass-fucking. And hey, isn't it nice to see a leader in the conservative movement finally come out in favor of a "don't ask, don't tell" policy in the military?
