Republican radio talk show kingpin Rush Limbaugh got a kick out of one caller today who suggested that since Japan is so environmentally friendly, maybe the Earth or "Gaia" reached out and slapped them for it.

Limbaugh seemed so amused by the theory that he ran with it, turning a warped tangent into some kind of sick joke, seemingly to mock the media and Japan amid an unprecedented disaster.

This is from The Rush Limbaugh Show, broadcast Wednesday, March 16, 2011, as snipped by liberal watchdog group Media Matters for America.
