Fry: Ah, those were the days.

Like Philip J. Fry, Rush Limbaugh longs for a simpler time. . .a before President Harding took office. A time when children worked long hours in the coal mines instead of getting an education and, of course, women could not vote.
Limbaugh has stated that he believes that things began to go downhill in the United States the day women got the right to vote “Because that’s when votes started being cast with emotion and maternal instincts that government ought to reflect.” Of course, Limbaugh tried to walk that back almost right away saying that he was joking.
Limbaugh knows that he is saying is offensive, but he would rather actually say it and then claim he wasn’t being offensive because he really believes what he is saying and is not joking.
