Limbaugh: Straight People Are 'Under Assault By The 2-5 Percent That Are Homosexual' (AUDIO)

Limbaugh spent the first seven minutes of a largely incoherent monologue focusing on the media's treatment of Sam, the All-American defensive end who could well be the NFL's first openly gay player.

"This is going to be a totally media-driven story," Limbaugh declared. "Totally."

But things turned strange shortly after the seven-minute mark of Limbaugh's rant.

"Why is homosexuality political?" Limbaugh asked, without a shred of irony. "Why is there a political aspect to or agenda associated with homosexuality?"

Moreover, who's looking out for straight guys like Limbaugh, who have "no activists" looking out for them.

"Heteros--you say heterosexuality may be 95, 98 percent of the population -- they're under assault by the two to five percent that are homosexual," Limbaugh said. "So why -- I'm just asking, I'm just throwing it out there -- why is there a political agenda attached to and driven by homosexuality and there is no corresponding heterosexual agenda?"
