Limbaugh: Obama, Male Advisers Are 'Sissies' (AUDIO)

Rush Limbaugh called President Obama and his male advisers "sissies" on his Tuesday show.

Limbaugh was reacting to a column by CNN's David Gergen, discussing the war in Libya. Gergen wrote that a "female friend" had called it ironic that high-powered women such as Hillary Clinton and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice "talked Obama into using force" against Muammar Gaddafi, even though, as the friend said, "many of us believed that if only more women could gain power, the world would surely become more peaceful." To Limbaugh, this turn of events made perfect sense.

"We're talking about male liberals!" he said. "Of course they were opposed. It's the new castrati...they're sissies! And here's the leader of the club, and he's sitting in the Oval Orifice."
