Rush Limbaugh says a lot of stupid shit. For reasons that I will never understand, he has been talking — and people have been listening — for over three decades. Limbaugh has written books and has built an audience of people who dislike liberal politics. I have to wonder, however, if he has an audience of idiot because politics aside, I cannot imagine how anyone thinks Limbaugh says anything of value.

Without further ado, here are 10 of the dumbest things Rush Limbaugh has ever said.
Kids are hungry because they’re lazy
When the state of Missouri received a two million dollar grant to feed hungry children during the summer, Limbaugh wasn’t pleased, claiming that the state had created a bunch of lazy pigs by feeding them during the school year. Because after all, little kids were living on the government teat for nine months, so of course they weren’t going to figure out how to feed themselves during the summer.
“If you feed them, if you feed the children, three square meals a day during the school year, how can you expect them to feed themselves in the summer?” he asked. “Wanton little waifs and serfs dependent on the State. Pure and simple.”
The women’s movement explained
After being selected as a judge for the Ms. America pageant, Limbaugh felt it necessary to clarify his position on feminism: “I’m a huge supporter of women. What I’m not is a supporter of liberalism. Feminism is what I oppose. Feminism has led women astray. I love the women’s movement especially when I’m walking behind it.”
People voted for Obama to prove they’re not racist
It’s understandable someone like Limbaugh would have trouble finding a logical reason Obama was elected president. In 2010, he Rushsplained the situation: “[Obama] wouldn’t have been voted president if he weren’t black. Somebody asked me over the weekend why does somebody earn a lot of money have a lot of money, because she’s black. It was Oprah. No, it can’t be. Yes, it is. There’s a lot of guilt out there, show we’re not racists, we’ll make this person wealthy and big and famous and so forth…. If Obama weren’t black he’d be a tour guide in Honolulu or he’d be teaching Saul Alinsky constitutional law or lecturing on it in Chicago.”
He definitely wouldn’t be an attorney or anything,with that law degree of his. Nope. Obama would be a tour guide.
The case of the shrinking dick
A few years ago, Limbaugh proclaimed his disgust with an Italian study that found male genitalia has shrunk over the past 50 years. Maybe it’s just ’cause I’m secure, but I’m not too worried about the size of my junk compared to a dude’s from 50 years ago. But maybe that’s just me.
“The study’s leaders claim to have bona fide research that says the average size of a penis is roughly 10 percent smaller than it was 50 years ago. And the researchers say air pollution is why,” he said said. And as for the possible reasons cited by the study — air pollution and global warming — Limbaugh wasn’t having it. ”I don’t buy this. I think it’s feminism. I think if it’s tied to the last 50 years, the average size of a member is 10 percent smaller… it has to be the feminazis,” Limbaugh said.
Yet another thing we can blame the ladies for, my friends. Smaller dicks.
The solution to nuclear weapons
Always one to have useful solutions to national problems, Limbaugh had a suggestion for how to handle nuclear weapons. “The only way to reduce the number of nuclear weapons is to use them.”
Gay men, explained
Because Limbaugh clearly understands gay men so well, he shared his clever insight: “When a gay person turns his back on you, it is anything but an insult; it’s an invitation.”
Yes, because all gay men want you to … never mind. I don’t think anyone wants Rush to do that.
The war on marriage
In 2012, Limbaugh shared his wisdom about the war on marriage, led by none other than the president. “We’ve arrived at a point where the President of the United States is going to lead a war on traditional marriage,” he said, confusion people everywhere who thought that having three ex-wives might put one in a position of chipping away at the sanctity of traditional marriage.
Oil spills are natural
Talking about an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Limbaugh insisted that the real problem was people trying to clean it up. “The ocean will take care of this on its own if it was left alone and left out there. It’s natural. It’s as natural as the ocean water is.”
The first lady is a fatty
Because Michelle Obama doesn’t look like a bikini cover model, she’s obviously doing it wrong. He said: “It doesn’t look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritionary [sic] dietary advice. And then we hear that she’s out eating ribs at 1500 calories a serving with 141 grams of fat… I’m trying to say that our first lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months or what have you.”
I‘m an addict
This one is less dumb and more entertaining, only because it’s a glaring example of hypocrisy. In 2003, after getting busted thanks to a housekeeper, Limbaugh famously said, “I am addicted to prescription pain medication.”
