Randi Rhodes: Man's World

Yesterday Rick Santorum released four years’ worth of his tax returns. To answer your first question, Rick Santorum paid a higher tax rate than Mitt Romney, but then so does everybody this side of crack dealers. Rick made a lot of money, but he’s no Mitt Romney. And you know that he released his tax returns just to prove that he’s no Mitt Romney.

Rush Limbaugh has announced “The vast majority of people having abortions are Democrat voters.” I highly doubt that. Republicans have been making it so difficult to get an abortion in recent years that the only people who can pull it off are rich Republicans. It just seems like more Democratic voters are having abortions because they have to go to the clinics with the screaming Republicans outside. When Republicans want abortions, they go to high-priced, discreet private doctors.

Rush also says that under healthcare reform “If they decide that you can only have two babies, they can do that.” Rush, the only limit we would want would be a zero-child mandate for you personally, and you seem to be doing that voluntarily. This whole birth control debate has really brought out the worst in Rush Limbaugh. But on the other hand, for decades now, birth control has also prevented the worst of Rush Limbaugh from being passed on genetically. Rush has had four marriages, but he has no children. He’s 0-for-4! He’s the Buffalo Bills of egg fertilizing!

I shouldn’t tease Rush for not reproducing. The fact that he hasn’t passed on his flawed genes is the one great gift that he has given to mankind. We should build a statue of him in a heroic pose... pushing an empty baby carriage.
