Seriously...Rush Limbaugh is a dick.

And not in the good way.

I know this isn't exactly news to most if not all of us here, but clock his latest outbreak of dickishness:

Limbaugh: Obama won't talk about Tennessee flood because "he doesn't have any constituents there to speak of"

From the May 7 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show

First of all...
"The federal government has moved quickly to assist Tennessee, and I appreciate the quick action by President Obama to declare the first of what I expect will be many counties authorized for federal assistance," Gov. Phil Bredesen said in a statement.

Second of all, and this is from a story headlined "Bredesen loving response to floods,"
Bredesen, a Democrat, said he’s been in regular contact with White House staff. In fact, he had just ended a long conversation with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

And third...obviously, all Americans are constituents of the President of the United States.

That should go without saying.

But even if we grant Limbaugh his stupid premise (that the President only cares about people who voted for him)'s still a stupid premise.

President Obama received 1,087,437 votes from Tennessee in the presidential election.
