Rush Limbaugh Uses North Dakota Flooding Tragedy To Make Gratuitous Jokes

March 30, 2009
Last week syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh used the dire flooding situation on the Red River in Fargo, North Dakota to make jokes about the word, "dike," which newscasters have used interchangeably with the word levee in their descriptions of the area. Media Matters for America posted audio of the nonsensical Limbaugh commentary.

It is not entirely clear why Limbaugh decided to fixate on the word "dike" but using Fargo's tragic circumstances to make jokes is a slap in the face to the people of North Dakota who are dealing with this disaster. Yet another crass move from the notoriously offensive Limbaugh.
