This 2016 presidential primary season is really chapping Rush Limbaugh patooties. He's been forced to defend Ted Cruz against Donald Trump's attacks and now he's lamenting the fact that because of feminism, he can't theoretically, figuratively, or literally hit women.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: If there were a man who had been secretary of state with her horrible record running for president, I guarantee you he would be judged much more harshly than Mrs. Clinton is being. Mrs. Clinton isn't judged at all, particularly by people on the left. They want to coronate her. She gets the most favorable press of any person in this race outside of Barack Hussein Obama.

There's a clear double standard from which she is benefiting. The fact that she is a woman covers her incompetence and masks it. And the fact that she is a woman prevents anybody from seriously going after her on that. But you won't see Bernie Sanders do it. Bernie Sanders won't go after her incompetence as secretary of state, even if he thought it, because she's a woman. And you still don't hit the woman, no matter how far the feminists advance. There's still certain societal norms. You don't invade a woman's space. You don't theoretically, figuratively, or literally hit the woman. You don't be mean to the woman. You just don't do it no matter who the woman is. Even if it's Nurse Ratchet, you don't do it.

Rush's characterization of the press, the left and Hillary is so far from reality that you'd have to also believe Obama assassinated Antonin Scalia.

Bernie is too smart a politician and a good human being to go where Limbaugh wishes he'd go.

And for that matter, it's mostly Rush Limbaugh and Christian conservative politicians who want women to be sex slaves and homemakers, who, when they get out of line, find the back of the hand or a belt buckle.
