Driving Miss Nancy

Rush Limbaugh has seized on the leadership contest between Reps. Jim Clyburn and Steny Hoyer to accuse Democrats of racism, claiming that Hoyer wants to send Clyburn to "the back of the bus."

Yesterday Limbaugh responded to purported claims that Clyburn wants to keep the perk of having a car by suggesting Clyburn be given the position of "Driving Miss Nancy. He gets to keep the car. He gets to go everywhere she goes, parties and everything else. He's not in the back of the bus. He's in the driver's seat, and she's in the back of the car being chauffeured." Responding to criticism of his remarks, Limbaugh claimed he "didn't do anything but react to what the Democrats are doing and make a little humor out of it."
