Now HERE’S An Honor That’s Undeserved…

No, I'm not talking about Obama and the Nobel Peace Prize. 

I'm talking about this:

The Miss America Organization (MAO) announced today that Rush Limbaugh has been named as one of the national judges for the 2010 Miss America Pageant, which will be held at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday, January 30 and broadcast live on TLC. Limbaugh will be one of a panel of seven distinguished judges that will help decide which of the 53 contestants will capture the Miss America 2010 title and serve as the Goodwill Ambassador for the Children's Miracle Network, as well as introduce the first Go Green platform for MAO.

Rush is going to help pick the next Miss America, who will in turn help the pageant "go green"?  An odd — indeed, offensive — choice considering Limbaugh's staunch anti-environment creds.

But more surprising is the choice because of the thrice-divorced Rush's persistent anti-woman and sexist remarks.

Like here.

And here.

And here.

And here.

And here.

And all these here.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Seriously, what was MOA thinking when it chose Rush Limbaugh?  What about him — his words, his works, anything — lends itself to the mission of Miss America?
