When President Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court last year, hate radio talker Rush Limbaugh led the conservative opposition to her, often making gender-based attacks such as calling her “an angry woman” who needs to “get over it.” Once again, Limbaugh is leading the opposition to Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, calling her “a pure academic elitist radical.” True to form, Limbaugh couldn’t help criticizing Kagan in sexist terms, saying that “we don’t need to go too deep in analyzing the babe” and “I guess she can change her mind. She’s a woman“:

LIMBAUGH:I know Obama said during the campaign that he didn’t believe marriage, same-sex marriage, it was between a man and a woman. He said it during the campaign. I guess she can change her mind. She’s a woman.
