Limbaugh Olympics

Regarding Claudia Puig’s “Rush Limbaugh Gives Liberals the Business, Gets Plenty Himself” (Nov. 25): So, Barbara Cross, who was in the audience at a Limbaugh talk, is quoted as saying Limbaugh “espouses traditional values.” Making fun of homeless people is a “traditional value”? Well, excuse me, but where I come from, that is nothing more than nastiness and meanness--behavior befitting a bully.

Fine, true conservatives (Barry Goldwater comes to mind) must cringe when yahoos such as Limbaugh become spokesmen for the conservative viewpoint.

In Puig’s article, Limbaugh is quoted as joking about a “homeless Olympics” featuring “the 10-meter Shopping Cart Relay, the Dumpster Dig and the Hop, Skip and Trip.”
