Oh, to be a fly on the wall during this prospective meeting: Off a recent Public Policy poll that showed only 37 percent of women hold favorable views of him, Rush Limbaugh now wants to recruit more of the fairer sex. “We’ll have a summit of all the women in this audience—or as many of them as we can get into breakout groups—and perhaps devote an hour in an upcoming program to calls only from women who genuinely want to talk to me…” he said recently on his show. Nearly 56 percent of men have a favorable view of the conservative: “I own the men, and what must I do now to own women?” suggests retracting the quote “Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society,” as a start.
