Nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh peddled gay-baiting sexual innuendo about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) from author Edward Klein's new book, The Truth About Hillary: What She Knew, When She Knew It, and How Far She'll Go to Become President (Sentinel, June 2005), on the June 7 edition of The Rush Limbaugh Show:
LIMBAUGH: I've got some interesting, juicy details on this book on Hillary by Ed Klein, but I'm not going to be the first to mention them. I'm not going there. It will come out eventually. It has to do with sexual orientation, and I'm not going to be the one. That's the book that everybody says is going to be presenting a firestorm.
Limbaugh apparently has an addiction to juvenile comments about Clinton's sexuality; his fascination with the topic goes back many years. Lately, he's taken to suggesting she is actually a man:
May 12: "I mean, where are the real men in the Democratic Party? Where are the real men? Hillary Clinton's one of them, but where are the others?"
April 19: "And, they're all [asking], 'What about Hillary? What about Hillary?' So, I told them, 'I'm not worried about Hillary. She puts her pants on one leg at a time like every other guy does.' "
Limbaugh's wild speculation about Clinton isn't confined to her sexuality; he also famously suggested that Vince Foster was "murdered in an apartment owned by Hillary Clinton."
