Earlier today, Charlize Theron compared Internet gossip to rape, and it seems her foolish remark caused conservative pundit and noted Arby's enthusiast Rush Limbaugh to try and reclaim his place as the King of Moronic Comments.

Addressing the topic of the Elliot Rodger massacre that claimed seven lives in Isla Vista, CA last week, Limbaugh (presumably with a straight face) blamed the Hunger Games films for motivating Rodger to kill.

"Have you seen any of the Hunger Games movies?" said Limbaugh on his radio show. "It's teenagers killing other teenagers! They're being forced to, but they're still doing it...This kid might say he was forced to [kill] by societal pressure."

Elliot Rodger's father worked as a second unit director on the first film in the franchise, a fact that prompted Limbaugh to seek a link between the movie and the killings.

Some time in 2015, Stephen Colbert will take over as host of The Late Show.

He will replace David Letterman at the helm of this program and, based on their Tweets, most celebrities see this as a good thing.

But Rush Limbaugh is not most celebrities.

In an epic rant yesterday, the conservative radio personality BLASTED CBS for making this selection, saying the network "just declared war on the heartland of America."

In a wide-ranging, hour-long discussion with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren Tuesday night, Rush Limbaugh shared his views on all things politics.

His criticism was not reserved for the opposing party, either.

Rush discussed a range of topics from his disdain for President Obama to his disappointment with the Republican Party leaders currently in Congress.

"The Republican Party wants a new base. The Republican leadership isn't conservative. They're not particularly crazy about conservatives," Limbaugh said.

"I'm a fairly prominent media conservative, and I swear I get more grief than the Taliban gets. I get more grief than Al Qaeda gets," he lamented.

A couple of the loudest voices in the Republican party have spoken out this week on the issue of gay marriage.

First, Bill O'Reilly came out and sounded very much like a marriage equality advocate, saying all legal arguments were on the side of homosexuals in this debate.

Now, Rush Limbaugh has sounded a very different tone, admitting that gay marriage is "inevitable," but blaming Democrats for how they have messed with the important language of the topic.

"I don't care what the Supreme Court does, this is now inevitable," Limbaugh said of the the Prop 8 deliberation. "And it's inevitable because we lost the language on this."

Keyshia Cole has some unexpected, anti-Beyonce company. Rush Limbaugh is going off on the star and her controversial single "Bow Down / I Been On."

The conservative talk-radio host ripped Jay-Z's wife for what he deemed a "180" in the image department and abandoning her feminist credibility.

"[Destiny's Child] songs were attempts to inspire young women not to take any grief from men. She's done a 180," said Limbaugh of the music superstar.

"Beyonce, now having been married, having been impregnated and giving birth to Blue Ivy," Rush added. "She's got a new song, 'Bow, Down Bitches.'"

"Beyonce is now saying, 'Go ahead and put up with it!'"

Rush Limbaugh would like to make a clarification.

A day after creating a stir by saying he is "ashamed of America," the conservative radio host talked in-depth Friday about exactly what he meant by that comment.

"The Left has beaten us," Limbaugh lamented. "They have created far more low-information, unaware, uneducated people than we’ve been able to keep up with...

"I’ve always had a Civics 101 view of the country: People get what they want, they vote what they want, and they get the way they vote.”

You've done it now, Democrats. You've made Rush Limbaugh officially "ashamed" to be an American.

That's how the conservative radio host described himself yesterday when ranting about the budget sequestration, an issue President Obama says could cripple the economy if Congress can't strike a deal before next month.

Limbaugh believes that argument from Obama - who said yesterday that love of rich people binds the GOP together - is an "insult" to his "common sense and intelligence."

"Here they come... sucking us in, roping us in," Limbaugh said.

Rush Limbaugh recently referred to a Georgetown student as a slut because she wanted to have birth control covered by her health insurance plan.

Incredibly, however, this comment was positively rational compared to the conspiracy theory spewed forth by the radio host on Tuesday.

  • Shot of Bane

Discussing The Dark Knight Rises and its primary villain, a terrorist played by Tom Hardy named Bane, Limbaugh went off about the clear connection between this bad guy's name and the issue Democrats have been hammering home in recent election ads: Mitt Romney's role in the company Bain.

It's a conspiracy, people!

"The villain in The Dark Knight Rises is named Bane, B-a-n-e," Limbaugh ranted. "What is the name of the venture capital firm that Romney ran and around which there's now this make-believe controversy? Bain.

"The movie has been in the works for a long time. The release date's been known, summer 2012 for a long time. Do you think that it is accidental that the name of the really vicious fire breathing four eyed whatever it is villain in this movie is named Bane?"

Well, readers, he's asking: Do you think it's a coincidence? Or is Christopher Nolan a secret agent for Barack Obama? Weigh in now: Are liberals behind the casting of Bane in The Dark Knight Rises?

Rush Limbaugh, asserting that President Barack Obama spends too much time courting celebrities for campaign cash and endorsements during times of financial hardship for average Americans, referred to him as "Barack Kardashian."

The White House responded in kind.

"Two words: Donald Trump. Next question," said Obama's press secretary, Jay Carney, when asked about Limbaugh's most recent ridicule of his boss.

Trump, an outspoken supporter of Mitt Romney, has become a foil for Obama since he started fueling "birther" claims that Obama was born overseas.

Carney's comments aboard Air Force One came as Obama jetted to California for a set of fundraisers, one at the home of Glee creator Ryan Murphy.

Obama's re-election bid has also harnessed the power of celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, George Clooney and Jon Bon Jovi, among many others.

On Tuesday, Limbaugh hammered Obama's celebrity connections, highlighting his 2012 campaign's latest ad, starring Vogue editor Anna Wintour:

"It's an indication once again how out of touch they really are, how distanced they have become from the people who make this country work."

"It's an indication of what they think the strong drawing power of the presidency is. I'll tell you that's what's becoming. He's Barack Kardashian."

"He is becoming the male Kim Kardashian with this stuff," Limbaugh said.

Women's rights activists are leading a "Rock the Slut Vote" online effort to register women to vote and cast their ballots against Republicans in 2012.

The name is a reference to Rush Limbaugh's use of the word to describe law student Sandra Fluke, who testified before Congress in support of contraceptives.

"If the GOP thinks throwing the word 'slut' at us at this point is going to silence women, they have another thing coming," said Susan McMillan Emry, the site's founder.

Rock the Slut Vote

Following the national backlash over Limbaugh calling Sandra Fluke a slut, "Rock the Slut Vote" is now aiming to "diffuse" the offensive term, Emry said.

Taking a vein from comedian Jeff Foxworthy and his "You might be a Redneck if…" jokes, Emry's website gives visitors 22 reasons why "You might be a slut."

One of the signs you're a quote-unquote slut: "If you've ever used contraception." Or "if you're still downloading Dixie Chicks music" or "if you don't go to church."

The site aims to "re-appropriate" the word "slut" so that the radio host and other Republicans cannot use it to "bully and silence women," Emry said.

"It's really about taking the power away from that word more than about Rush Limbaugh. He gave the word the notoriety but we are trying to take it back."

Emry said the "Rush Limbaugh mess," the Susan G. Komen Foundation's decision to cut Planned Parenthood funding and recent efforts in state Legislatures to restrict access to abortions and contraceptives "compelled" her to create the site.

"Originally my intention wasn't so much to have a platform as to find a voice myself," Emry said. "It was good for me personally because I felt so much outrage."
