(Newser) – Rush Limbaugh giddily chided the National Organization for Women—or, as the ever-sensitive shock jock routinely refers to it, the "NAGs," meaning "National Association of Gals"—yesterday for a statement president Terry O'Neill made rejoicing in the political conflict surrounding the conservative radio host. "Right now it really seems like we've got this godsend named Rush Limbaugh who has dropped this thing in our laps," O'Neill said at the NOW convention Saturday.

"I thought they were outraged," Limbaugh crowed, according to Yahoo. "I thought it was the worst thing they ever heard anybody say. [Now] it's wonderful. … The NAGs called me a godsend. So not only am I God's gift to Obama, I'm God's gift to women." But these days Rush is looking less like God's gift to Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates his show. Earlier this week, Premiere told affiliates that they needn't broadcast its ads for two weeks, a sign that advertiser defections are hurting it, the New York Times reports.
