Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Right wing shock jock Rush Limbaugh — who was last seen trying to do damage control in the wake of his misogynist rant against Sandra Fluke — is in the news again after equating a political squabble with the death of a 17 year old.

Limbaugh waded into the debate over Ann Romney’s job as a stay-at-home mom by invoking another controversy: the death of Trayvon Martin.

“If I had a daughter, she would look like Ann Romney!” Limbaugh exclaimed before breaking into laughter. His comments were a clear allusion to President Obama, who said in March that “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
