Limbaugh Mocks Obama: "We Gotta Get An Illegal Alien On The Supreme Court"

Jumping into today's fray over who will replace retiring Supreme Court Justice David Souter, Rush Limbaugh twisted past statements by President Obama to sarcastically suggest that he would appoint an "illegal alien." Obama had expressed a desire to appoint "someone who understands what it means to be on the outside of things ... what it means for the system to not work for you."

At another point in Friday's show, Limbaugh waxed cantankerously, "We need a teenage single mother, who's gay, is a lesbian, who's dirt poor, African-American, and disabled."

LISTEN:

As the tirade continues, Limbaugh addresses potential Souter Supreme Court replacement Sonia Sotomayor and other Hispanics, saying, "Sotomayor is Puerto Rican, this is going to make the Mexicans and the Cubans angry."

In another slew of predictions and proposals, Limbaugh suggests that "wacko fringe nutcases" will "start pressuring Obama to pick somebody like Ward Churchill" to replace Souter. Churchill is the author of the controversial September 2001 essay, "Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens," which blamed US foreign policy for the 9/11 attacks.
