Out of nowhere, during his CPAC speech Sunday, Rush Limbaugh took a perceptable swipe at gays, mocking them, calling weak men “Castrati”, and lisping. CNN cut the feed. Here’s the speech, you’ll hear Rush lisping, then the feed is cut and CNN goes to its anchor, then cuts back again.
Here’s the text of that portion of Rush Limbaugh’s speech, with the lisp bolded:
“Doesn’t matter to me what his race is. It doesn’t matter. He’s liberal is what matters to me. And his articulated — his articulated plans scare me. Now, I understand we can’t say we want the President to fail, Mr. Limbaugh. That’s like saying — this is the voice of the New Castrati, by the way, guys who have lost their guts. You can’t say Mr. Limbaugh that you want the President to fail because that’s like saying you want the country to fail. It’s the opposite. I want the country to survive. I want the country to succeed.”
If I were the new leader of the Republican Party, I’d sure call out Limbaugh’s antics.
