(Newser) – Rush Limbaugh said today he didn’t mean to discourage private donations to Haiti relief efforts yesterday in insisting that Americans had already made a contribution via income taxes—but did stand by a claim that President Obama is using those efforts to boost his popularity in the black community. And when April from Paducah, Ky., took exception in a call to his radio show, Limbaugh let her have it.

“Everything this president sees is a political opportunity, including Haiti, and he will use it to burnish his credentials with minorities in this country and around the world.” Then he got personal: “If you had listened to this program for a modicum of time you would know it. But instead you’re a blockhead. You’re mind is totally closed. You have tampons in your ears.”
