Rush Limbaugh really is a big, fat idiot

This is old news by now, but it was new to me today.

The Excellence in Bullshit Broadcasting host (does he actually still use that moniker?) said recently about the Upper Big Branch Mine disaster:

"Was there no union responsibility for improving mine safety? Where was the union here? Where was the union? The union is generally holding these companies up demanding all kinds of safety. Why were these miners continuing to work in what apparently was an unsafe atmosphere?"

Ummm, it was a non-union mine.

(That part I knew, within 24 hours after the disaster, because I actually pay attention to the news.)
