Gov. Scott Walker is the golden boy of the GOP 2016 presidential hopefuls right now and Rush Limbaugh has already hitched his wagon to that caboose so he had some what he considered wise words for the evangelical governor that I doubt he'll take. Conservatives usually fall flat trying to be comedians because what's funny to them is just offensive insults at the expense of others on the other side of the political scale. I'm not sure when making fun of raped female college became a water sport.

Limbaugh: You seek the presidency and you think you're imminently qualified but we're looking at your past and we see here that you quit the University of SE Missouri in your second semester of your freshman year after refusing to take ballroom dance taught by a lesbian drill sergeant....that happens to be true...

His answer would be. I left college because I didn't want to be accused of rape someday.

Limbaugh can tun any story into a woman hating sermon.

It's true that the uber-religious Walker left college and never returned, but the reason why is still a mystery:

In 1990, that news stunned his friends at Marquette University. Walker, the campus’s suit-wearing, Reagan-loving politico — who enjoyed the place so much that he had run for student body president — had left without graduating.

To most of the Class of 1990 — and, later, to Wisconsin’s political establishment — Walker’s decision to quit college has been a lingering mystery.

Not even his friends at Marquette were entirely sure why he never finished. Some had heard that a parent had fallen ill, or maybe there was some financial strain. Others thought he had simply had enough of school.

Who knows, maybe Limbaugh isn't far off talking about campus rape.
