Nurse Ratchet (actually Nurse Ratched the cold, unsympathetic psychiatric nurse from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) is not someone that anyone would want to be likened to. But that's who Rush Limbaugh associates with Hillary Clinton.
What's the deal? Well, this morning on the Today show, Rush was asked by NBC's Jamie Gangel to play word association. He zipped off some wisecracks -- the toughest aimed at Secretary of State/former senator/former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, and the most condescending at First Lady Michelle Obama. Here's his word association in all its awful entirety:
President Obama: "Disaster"
Michelle Obama: "Garden. Plants a garden out there."
Former President Jimmy Carter: "An utter disgrace and embarrassment."
Sarah Palin: "Misunderstood and underestimated."
Former President Bush: "Most decent, down-to-earth real man you'd ever hope to meet."
Glenn Beck: "Look what I have spawned. Glenn Beck to me is 'Right on, Daddy-O.' "
Hillary Clinton: "Nurse Ratchet."
"Rush is right"? YEAH, RIGHT.
