Rush Limbaugh got a double dose of mockery on Comedy Central Monday night, first with Jon Stewart saying he's a terrible person, and then Stephen Colbert calling him a "poster boy for contraception" on "The Colbert Report."

Limbaugh activated America's collective gag reflex last week when he called Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke a slut and a prostitute among other other incendiary remarks on his radio talk show. As usual, Colbert satirized him brilliantly:

"She's a slut and a prostitute? That's two jobs and she still can't afford her own birth control? Come on!"

Colbert really zeroed in on Limbaugh's apparent misunderstanding of how contraception works after he ranted about Fluke (who he has never met) having lots and lots of sex, as if the more sex you have, the more birth control pills you have to take. Colbert explained why Limbaugh would think such a thing with a serious burn:

"Rush knows what he's talking about, because every time he's had sex with a woman, he's had to slip her a pill first."
