I had taken a too long break from blogging, I admit it. But my friends over at feministing, broadsheet and jezebel seemed to have a pretty good handle on stuff. I am, however, pulled out of my slumber by none other than Rush Limbaugh and what has to be one of the most misogynistic questions I've come across in quite some time.

"Does," he asked in reference to Hillary Clinton, "our looks obsessed culture want to stare at an aging woman?"

Unfortunately for this blog, that question has actually rendered me almost speechless. I'm forced to wonder what exactly Rush would want our "looks-obsessed culture" to do with aging women? I would also argue that the issue to be addressed is not an aging woman per se, but rather the "looks obsessed culture."

And, if I may add, what is Rush Limbaugh still doing on the air? Didn't he have some sort of illegal drug activity going on? Or am I confusing him with another judgmental conservative commentator who hates women?
