Limbaugh Makes Fun of Quake Refugees

Rush Limbaugh joins Glenn Beck in the annals of "despicable reactions to Japan's devastating crisis." Limbaugh seems to suggest that "mother earth" (he believes in that stuff? Isn't that pagan hocus-pocus in his eyes? very confusing) was actually punishing the Japanese for being environmentally-conscious. He made fun of refugees in a shelter for admirably starting a recycling program.

And then in response to a caller, he elaborated:

All those brand new electric cars sitting there on the lot. I like the way this guy was thinking. It's like -- it's like Gaia hit the Prius in [inaudible]. It's like they were in the crosshairs, if we can use that word, it does. What is Gaia trying to tell us here? What is the mother of environmentalism trying to say with this hit?
