Rush Limbaugh Insulted Our Mayor–We Think

rush_limbaugh_0213.jpgFirst of all – we don’t want to offend drug addicts by lumping them in with…ahem – Lumpy Limbaugh – or as we like to call him, Jabba the Yutz. So we won’t. But this is what he said about our Antonio Villaraigosa on his radio show:

I shook [Clinton's] hand, he left, comes back [with] the mayor of Los Angeles,” he told listeners. “I thought it was a Secret Service agent, maybe a shoeshine guy. Turns out he gives me his card, I said, ‘Oh, my gosh, it’s the mayor of Los Angeles.’”

Then Villaraigosa looked at Limbaugh’s card and said,”Oh my gosh, it’s the ambassador to the 17th century.”
