VIDEO:Limbaugh, Haitian Earthquake "Made to Order" by Obama

[flv: 480 360]

Yesterday, I thought I may have found the most distasteful response to Haiti’s earthquake.

I should have known better…. Step forward Rush Limbaugh.

The Haitian relief effort, says the shock jock, will be used to “burnish” Obama’s reputation with “both the light skinned and the dark skinned black communities in this country”.

Oh, and Americans should not donate to relief efforts for the quake - “made to order” for Obama, by the way - because "we've already donated to Haiti, it's called the US income tax."

You can read White House press secretary Robert Gibb's response to both Pat Roberston and Rush Limbaugh's comments here, but here's the gist:

"In times of great crisis, there are always people who say stupid things."
