Right winger talkers are just losing their minds over the fact that Obama is now President. I know they lack humor so could it be that they actually think this is funny?

Discussing President Obama's signing of the economic recovery bill at a ceremony in Denver, 630 KHOW-AM's Peter Boyles on his February 18 program repeatedly referred to one of the ceremony attendees, U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Denver), as "Vagina DeJet" and "Vagina DeGette."

And a Republican state Sen joins in the conversation like it's no big deal. He should apologize immediately.

CALDARA: When Schultheis speaks, it's a real room-clearer.

BOYLES: As soon as Schultheis spoke, I said, "It's time to fire up the bike." But then I went out to the museum. And, you know, I went over to Fox News, and all the media trucks were over there on the north side. Guys, there wasn't 75 people there.

SCHULTHEIS: That's what I hear. Hardly anybody.

BOYLES: I mean, now there were 250 of, like, Vagina DeJet was in there, and other people, they were the 250 selected, hand-picked -- Federico Peña was in the front row. I was shocked to see that.

CALDARA: I thought it'd be a handful of guys, but people are genuinely angry, and you could tell that they wanted to do something, but there was nothing to do, that our Colorado delegation, by a --

BOYLES: Vagina DeGette.

I think we need to take a look at the fairness doctrine. Not to change the rules per se, but so we can have equal time on the air to yell either racist or sexist remarks about Republicans. Well since there aren't any African Americans in their party outside of Michael Steele, I guess that wouldn't work. No, I wouldn't go for that really, but I like bringing up the fairness doctrine because it scares the heck out of these talking head freaks and FOX News in particular.

Can you help us out?
