Politics, Moderate



Limbaugh thinks nation not ready for happily married man

By Rex Huppke, Tribune Content Agency on

Right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh, who daily demonstrates what would happen if a landfill learned to vent its decomposition gases into a microphone, has smartly weighed in on Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg: "America's still not ready to elect a gay guy kissing his husband on the debate stage."

America's most-recent Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient makes an excellent point. There's simply no way this country is ready for the kind of disgusting, hardcore monogamy Buttigieg has been demonstrating.

What politician would dare to publicly show affection toward his or her spouse, aside from literally every politician ever? It's an absolute outrage.

During his Wednesday radio show, Limbaugh noted: "Mayor Pete, 37-year-old gay guy, mayor of South Bend, loves to kiss his husband on the debate stage."

He loves it! That Buttigieg guy, who is actually 38, just can't get enough of kissing the person with whom he's in a committed and loving relationship. GROSS!

There is nobody on those Democratic debate stages who would do that, aside from everybody.


Continuing his definitely-not-homophobic monologue, Limbaugh said: "And they're saying, OK, how's this going to look, 37-year-old gay guy kissing his husband on stage next to Mr. Man Donald Trump?"

Ah, yes, Mr. Man Donald Trump. Just imagine what that Mr.-Man man would do to a spouse-smoocher like Buttigieg.

"Can you see Trump have fun with that?" Limbaugh asked.

Hoo-boy, I can see that, all right. Our Mr. Man president would surely have a field day facing off against Buttigieg and teaching him what it's like to be a real Mr.-Man-man-type Man of the Macho-verse.
