Rush Limbaugh From the “I’m-so-glad-you-said-it-first” files, LA Times cartoonist and columnist David Horsey illustrated (pictured) what most aren’t willing to say in his latest cartoon: The GOP are straight scared of the infamously racist, sexist, and seemingly irrepressible conservative Rush Limbaugh.

Where’s the evidence, you may ask? Limbaugh’s latest brain fart inspired him to call Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke (a 30-year-old women’s activist who spoke before the House of Representatives lobbying for free contraception) a “slut” and “prostitute.”

Limbaugh has said so many insulting and disrespectful things over the years that this latest dig initially seemed as if it would be given a pass. But not so fast. In recent days, Limbaugh has been losing advertisers off of his radio show faster than a roll of toilet paper can disappear from an unfortunate diner with food poisoning. Since Limbaugh has been hit where it hurts — his pocket — he gave what seems to be his first apology ever for his unfortunate remarks. As of Wednesday, Limbaugh has lost 39 advertisers.

According to Horsey, George Will, a Washington Post conservative columnist and what appears to be the inspiration for this lovely cartoon, is one of the few to call out the GOP elephant in the room:

George Will, one of the last lions of the right wing whose conservatism is a philosophy rather than a pathology, has heaped scorn on Republican leaders for their cowardly obeisance to Rush Limbaugh…. Sunday morning on ABC’s “This Week,” Will said straight out that ‘Republican leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh.’

Horsey then details how GOP leaders reacted to Limbaugh’s money-snatching comments:

[House Speaker John] Boehner comes out and says Rush’s language was inappropriate, Will said. “Using the salad fork for your entree, that’s inappropriate. Not this stuff.

Commenting on Limbaugh’s tirade, Mitt Romney timidly observed that ‘slut’ and ‘prostitute’ were not necessarily the words he would have chosen, as if Limbaugh were simply in need of a thesaurus.

Rick Santorum called Limbaugh’s comments ‘absurd,’ but seemed to give Rush a pass since he is an entertainer whose job it is to be absurd.

Newt Gingrich simply took the Limbaugh flap as one more opportunity to denounce the ‘liberal media.’

So what do you think? Are the Republicans skeerd of Limbaugh and what are the ongoing consequences when Republicans remain silent on inappropriate behavior from within their own ranks?
