It's not often that I feel sympathy for our nation's too-big-to-fail radio host, but, as Anton Chekhov wrote, "Every happy man should have some one with a little hammer at his door to knock and remind him that there are unhappy people and that, however happy he may be, life will sooner or later show its claws, and some misfortune will befall him — illness, poverty, loss…"
So no matter how much I may revile the conservative broadcaster, I think I should take this moment to express our condolences to Rush, lest we be the happy men who neither see nor hear others in their time of illness and misfortune…
"I think it's feminism. If it's tied to the last 50 years — the average size of [a male's] member is 10 percent smaller than 50 years [ago] — it has to be the feminazis, the chickification and everything else. Give them time and they'll blame Bush. But air pollution versus feminazis? Ha!"
Limbaugh was referring to an Italian study which purported to show a 10% decline in penis size over a 50 year period and laid the blame on weight gain around the waist, alcohol consumption, smoking, stress and environmental pollutants. None of which are problems for Limbaugh, of course. In his case, it was definitely the Teeny Weenie committee of the National Organization for Women that's causing shrinkage.
But no matter who or what is ultimately responsible, let's keep Rush in our thoughts as he goes through this difficult time.
