Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh condemned NASCAR driver Danica Patrick during his show Monday, asking, “What do you expect from a woman driver,” according to New York Daily News.

"She said, 'I leave it up to the government to make good decisions for America.' Limbaugh said in response to Patrick openly supporting the Obama’s administration’s contraception rule requiring faith-based institutions to provide free birth control to their employees, “What do you expect from a woman driver? I don't know why everybody was so shocked."

A day before Limbaugh’s slur, Fox San Diego sports anchor Ross Shimabuku was suspended for saying a vulgar slur about Patrick during a live broadcast. Patrick has not yet responded on Limbaugh’s comment.
