Seattle Times letters to the editor

Limbaugh on Pelosi

A misinterpretation of his words

I have to take issue with the writer of “Rush’s 2 cents not worth much” [Opinon, Northwest Voices, May 19]. I listened to what Rush Limbaugh said and he did not call for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to resign. What he said was that it will be interesting to see if she resigns, to see if she can really break the glass ceiling, since a couple of male House Speakers resigned when they ran into controversy (Jim Wright, Newt Gingrich).

Also, when Limbaugh says stuff like, “Half my brain tied behind my back, just to make it fair,” or, “I was born to host, you were born to listen,” it is all tongue-in-cheek, but those who have had a humor-ectomy probably don’t recognize that.
