Rush Limbaugh remains the real king of the Republican Party, making right-wing politicians cower in fear and apologize if they ever dare to challenge his offensive view of the world.

Somebody needs to ask the Republicans who refuse to criticize Limbaugh if they agree with his comments this week in response to a report about children who receive school lunches during the academic year going hungry in the summer.  Here’s the summary from Media Matters.

He suggested creating a recurring segment on his show called “where to find food.” He decided the first segment would be called “try the refrigerator,” followed by “try McDonalds,” and the classiest of all: “Dumpster Dive.”  Rush spent a great deal of time chuckling at his joke.

The next time you see a self-identified conservative politician who wants your vote in November, ask him or her if they agree with Rush Limbaugh that children who are hungry don’t need our help because they can look in dumpsters for something to eat? Let me know what they say.
