What humor is there in Limbaugh’s “you’re a slut and a prostitute” remark? A commentary

Rush Limbaugh claims that he used “you are a slut and a prostitute” in order to inject humor and laughter which referred to Ms Sandra Fluke. In this sense, humor must have taken a new course. It has mutated from a very mortally insulting remark. Is there anyone slapped with depressing and dehumanizing “you are a slut and a prostitute” remark will smilingly accept it? It is expected that only a fool will do and if, Limbaugh is one then, probably, he will even protest against it as Ms Fluke did.

If Mr. Limbaugh insists on his insulting remark as “humor” then, something went wrong with his sound mind. Perhaps, he needs an executive check up and somebody has to advise him.

Definitely, there was no humor in such a remark especially when it was addressed to a woman with high self-esteem like Ms Fluke. Considering Limbaugh’s status as a nationally acclaimed radio showman, the remark was deliberate rather than accidental to be equated it as humor. The humor angle that Limbaugh claims is a way for him to wash his hands off the “heating up” adverse consequences of the remark.

If supports in terms of advertisements for his program remained intact after the virulent remark has been said, then, humor must have held much water and there must be no Fluke-Limbaugh entanglement that media have to deal with this time.

Limbaugh who identifies himself as a conservative is equipped with careless conservative tongue and uncaring mind like prominent personalities in the GOP. In him, one can fathom a Gingrich I.Q. In him, everyone can hear a Romney, a Santorum and a Paul.

With Fluke-Limbaugh row, may the American radio audience give their scores on the issue as the sponsors of the radioman have undertaken their respective course of actions.
