Limbaugh says we need to return to ‘segregated buses.’

Is there anything that Rush Limbaugh can say that the Republicans will not defend? I ask this because he has now made a statement so bizarre that, were it to be made by any other person in American life, they would have been taken off of the air almost instantly.

Limbaugh is now calling for a return to segregation on the United States school buses:

Last week, a video of a school bus beating showing two African American children assaulting a white student began circulating the internet. Despite claims by authorities that the attack was not necessarily racially motivated, hate radio host Rush Limbaugh jumped on the story and claimed that in “Obama’s America the white kids now get beat up.” Yesterday, Limbaugh proposed a solution to this problem — a return to segregated busing:

LIMBAUGH: I think the guy’s wrong. I think not only it was racism, it was justifiable racism. I mean, that’s the lesson we’re being taught here today. Kid shouldn’t have been on the bus anyway. We need segregated buses — it was invading space and stuff. This is Obama’s America.

Seriously, is there nothing this guy can say that will be outrageous enough for even the Republicans to admit that he has gone too far? And how can people argue that "race has nothing to do with this" when Limbaugh is arguing that, in "Obama's America" it is necessary to reintroduce segregated buses?
