Rush Limbaugh, Rapist

Big Pharma drops his pants, does some major excavation work, and starts fantasizing about rape:

The election results were clear. If we were a woman, and the Congress were a man, we’re in the middle of being raped.... We said ‘no’ in November, i.e., the election. We have said no at every opportunity, and yet they continue.

Leaving aside his obscenity of a metaphor, Big Pharma's exactly wrong. The current members of Congress were elected for an entire term, which has not been completed. They weren't elected to a term of five years and ten months, or one year and ten months. None of the persons first elected in November 2010 were elected to do anything in November and December 2010. (And, of course, "we" voted for our own Representative and Senator, not for the entire Congress. And the Senate "we voted for" in 2010 has clear instructions to oppose Pigboy's platform.) It's Pigboy who wants to "rape" the voters who elected their Congresspersons to the current Congress.

Rush Limbaugh is the moral equivalent of Robert Chambers after he consumed two other Robert Chambers.
