Rush Limbaugh Asks, What Do Women Want?

I know this week’s Douchebag Decree doesn’t come out until tomorrow, but I thought we could take a minute to prepare for it by discussing an O.G. Douchebag who has made some new gender waves over the past few days: Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh (a.k.a. Sir Douche-yness) has noticed a (gasp!) gender gap in his approval ratings as of late, and is planning to host a women’s...
