Is President Obama the first Kardashian president? The question comes up because radio provocateur Rush Limbaugh insists that is the case.

On his show Wednesday, Mr. Limbaugh talked about this week’s Obama fundraising sweepstakes for dinner with the first couple, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, and actress Sarah Jessica Parker. He played the ads Ms. Wintour and Ms. Parker have cut to promote Obama’s candidacy.

Then El Rushbo opined that this coziness with the New York celebritocracy shows how remote Obama is from ordinary people.

“He is [the] celebrity of the United States. He is not the president, and his whole team’s out there pushing this. Barack Hussein Kardashian is what he has become,” said Limbaugh.
