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.

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.

  • Rush Limbaugh Shot
  • 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."

Sandra Fluke Slutgate continues to torment Rush Limbaugh.

The talk show host - who apologized this week for referring to a Georgetown student as a prostitute because she wants contraception to be covered by health care providers - has received a cease-and-desist letter from the band Rush because they just discovered Limbaugh has been using their songs during his program.

"The public performance of Rush’s music is not licensed for political purposes and any such use is in breach of public performance licenses and constitutes copyright infringement," the group wrote, specifically bringing up the playing of "The Spirit of Radio" during Limbaugh's bashing of Fluke.

"Accordingly, we hereby demand that you immediately stop all use of Rush’s music and confirm that you will do so," the band concluded.

Earlier in the week, Peter Gabriel made a similar demand regarding his licensed music after the conservative blowhard played "Sledgehammer" in the background of a rant.

President Obama invoked his daughters, Malia and Sasha, as he described reaching out to now-famous Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke over the phone.

Fluke and Rush Limbaugh have been ensnared in a war of words after Limbaugh called the contraception activist a slut for her testimony before Congress.

Obama elevated the issue even further when he called Fluke personally and the White House condemned Limbaugh's controversial remarks on the subject.

Since then, sponsors have been fleeing the Limbaugh show despite Rush's apology to Fluke and even GOP presidential candidates are distancing themselves.

At a press conference yesterday, Obama said:

"The reason I called Ms. Fluke is because I thought about Malia and Sasha and one of the things that I want them to do as they get older is to engage in issues they care about, including ones that I may not agree with the on."

"And I don't want them attacked or called horrible names just because they're being good citizens. One thing that all decent folks can agree that the remarks that were made don't have any place in the public discourse."

Rush Limbaugh has apologized to Sandra Fluke for referring to the Georgetown Law School student as a "slut" and a "prostitute" because she believes her health insurance plan should pay for female contraception.

But might the conservative talk show host still be in major trouble for those remarks?

Fluke told The Daily Beast that legal experts have informed her she "might have a case" against Limbaugh for slander, but bringing a lawsuit against the blowhard is "not something I've made any decisions about at this point."

Rep. Carolyn Maloney, a Democrat from New York, seems far more committed to this goal than Fluke, as she claimed on Friday that “we will be filing a slander suit against Rush Limbaugh. What he’s really trying to do is silence a young woman. It’s unfair, it’s un-American.”

To come out on top in any slander suit, a victim must prove that the accused made a false statement, "published" it to at least one other party and also that said statement caused injury. This does seem like it could apply to both Limbaugh and actress Patricia Heaton for her comments.

But should Fluke go through with such an action? You tell us:

She may star on The Middle, but when it comes to politics, Patricia Heaton is one of the few outspoken celebrities who is far to the right.

How far to the right? Rush Limbaugh far.

Just like that conservative talk show host, this actress went off on Sandra Fluke not long after the Georgetown Law School student appeared at a press conference last week and pleaded her case for why contraception should be covered by health insurance companies.

As you can see in the sample Tweets below, Heaton continually, condescendingly mocked Fluke's supposed reliance on others:

Patricia Heaton Tweets

But then also like Limbaugh, Heaton issued an apology via Twitter, writing: Mea culpa Sandra! Wasn't being respectful 2 u re my tweets as I hope people wd b w/me. Don't like you being dissed -so sorry."

Perhaps realizing that a Mea Culpa written like a second grader was equally disrespectful, Heaton gave it another try and finally struck the right tone:

I apologized to Ms Fluke last week. I may not agree with her views but I didn't treat her with respect and I'm sorry. I was wrong. Mea Culpa.
