Rush Limbaugh believes in equality and fairness. That’s just the kind of man he is.
So, today during his radio show, he pointed out the clear issue with people mocking Chris Christie for his weight; there are so many fat ladies for us to make fun of as well!
“The truth and the fact of the matter is that female politicians get a pass on every aspect on their appearance. You would never have stories about how some female politician’s fat like there are stories about Christie being fat. You wouldn’t have those. When’s the last time you heard a story about Barnie Frank being fat? When’s the last time you…well…it still fits. All these stories about Christie being fat are all over the place. ‘Will he have the stamina? The energy? There are plenty of lard-ass women in politics?”
It’s so, so true. No one ever mentions the appearance of female politicians. In fact, I haven’t heard word one about, say, Michele Bachmann’s “crazy eyes” or Hillary Clinton’s “mannishness.” It’s just not fair!
And good thing he lumped Frank in with the other ladies. Those gay people sure mess up broad generalizations, don’t they!
So, remember, folks. Next time Rush Limbaugh mocks the weight of “Moochelle” Obama, he’s not just doing it because it’s funny. He’s doing it because it’s the right thing to do.
