Controversial conservative talk-show radio host Rush Limbaugh can't stay out of the news. He is now being criticized for defending Joseph Kony, head of the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda, on his show last year, according to the Huffington Post.

In a video by the organization Invisible Children that went viral a few days ago, the African strongman and his guerrilla group are accused of atrocities against children, including mutilations, murder and sexual slavery. (He is also wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity.) But apparently he has a friend in Limbaugh, who defended him and blasted President Obama after the president sent troops to fight the LRA. Limbaugh said at the time that the president was trying to "wipe out Christians."

We're sure Limbaugh will try to talk his way out of this one, but it looks as if the Sandra Fluke controversy was only the start of his media woes. Will Limbaugh survive?
