Rush Limbaugh is a disgusting person, but beyond that, he's also clueless about women.

Listen to his piggish claim that women just love being objectified and whistled at on the street, and how he rags all over Michelle Obama for objecting to it. Keep in mind, the First Lady is mother to two really beautiful daughters, too. I'm sure it would creep her out if the likes of Rush Limbaugh leered and whistled at them as well.

Here's the transcript, if you can't stomach the blowhard himself. Via Media Matters:

RUSH LIMBAUGH: First lady Michelle Obama has been the victim of sexism she said Wednesday, because men used to whistle at her while she walked down the street. This is yesterday in Buenos Aires, Argentina.


I'm tired, I'm tired of these people running around the world essentially telling everybody that they can get to listen to them, what a horrible place their own country is. If you listen to Michelle Obama, you would think that all of this discrimination and all of these -- she's sitting as first lady of the United States and she can't get past it, she can't get over it, I'm telling you these people are bitter. They have not gotten over it, all of this is personal, and they haven't gotten rid of their anger. They haven't gotten rid of whatever resentment, chips on their shoulder they harbor.

Here's the bit about sexism, do you know how many women would love being whistled at walking down the street? Am I going to get fined for that? Am I out of touch observing that? Seriously. Sadly, I might be on the edge acknowledging that you have a wolf whistle. Okay you have your average American construction site, and you have your average American construction worker, and every woman in the world knows you go walking by there, you're going to get whistled at. And yet they walked by. Depending on the time of day, doesn't matter, they're all going to get whistled. The idea, that that is discriminatory, this is what's wrong with the modern era of feminism in the first place.


I'm sorry, Mrs. Obama, but God made me a man, and as such I can't help noticing a woman who I think is attractive. And I'll be damned if I'm going to shut up and not tell her so.


Try being a guy with women thinking all of this, noticing them is offensive. Noticing them is sexist. Just simply noticing them is subjugating them.

No, Rush, you have that wrong. Having a pig like you notice and act like you're ready to jump her in the street is offensive, and I daresay most women would agree.
