(h/t Amanda at TP)

Oh, that klassy, klassy spokesman for the Right.

Apparently, Rush Limbaugh, fresh from his stint as a Miss America judge (I guess it's as good a cover for his preferences as any), felt a little sensitive by criticism that some women feel that beauty pageants are a sexist, dehumanizing spectacle that unfairly places too much emphasis on the female's attractiveness for her sense of value. Evidently, attractiveness to the opposite sex is not a concern for Rush, so perhaps it's not something he's ever considered before.

But Rush insisted that he's not against women. Far from it:

CARLSON: So for those who were critics of you in judging this pageant, and saying that you haven’t been a supporter of women in the past —

LIMBAUGH: Oh, I’m a huge supporter of women. What I’m not a supporter of is liberalism. Feminism is what I oppose, and feminism has led women astray. I love women. I don’t know where all this got started. I love the women’s movement — especially when walking behind it. This idea that I don’t like women is absurd. This is Miss America. And if there’s a Mr. America out there, it’s me.

Ugh. Boy, you know how much women like those kind of double entendres from a such a stud as Rush. For my part, I'd prefer to be in front. I can honestly say that the view walking behind Rush wouldn't exactly be picturesque.
