Is Danica Patrick the death and the end of feminism?

There isn’t much certain in life, but one thing we could bet on; conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh is probably not a NASCAR fan.

Days after causing a nationwide stir with comments directed at a Georgetown student calling her a ‘slut’ for her stance on birth control, Limbaugh issued an apology, in a roundabout sort of way. Limbaugh issued an apology to Sandra Fluke on his website, saying “in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize.”….”My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.”

As part of Limbaugh’s original comments, he made a slight against NASCAR driver Danica Patrick. Last week he condemned Patrick for her support of President Obama’s contraception rule. READ MORE>>>
