Blathering during his radio show on Monday, Rush Limbaugh informed his listeners that men who support the contraceptive mandate — and oppose the Supreme Court's increasingly radical Hobby Lobby decision — are "pajama boy types" who only care about "sex, sex, sex."

After a lengthy session of yelling at clouds over how much better things were back in his day, Limbaugh got to the nub of the contraceptive mandate issue and the larger question of birth control and recreational sex. "The thing I have learned is that ... today's young men are totally supportive of somebody else buying women their birth control pills, because ... sex is what it's all about."

He went on: "Pajama boy types and having sex, sex, sex — that's what it's all about. Everybody wants it and whatever it takes to make it safe ... and if it takes the tax-payers buying birth control, the men are for it, too."

Presumably speaking as one of the aforementioned sex-crazed pajama boys, Limbaugh added, "If this is what women want, before they'll have sex, then fine."

Limbaugh then continued to yell at clouds. You can hear him doing so below, via Media Matters:
