Conservative political commentator Rush Limbaugh ripped into a CNN analyst he referred to as an "infobabe" Tuesday for showing what he sees as outright disrespect for retired neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate, Ben Carson, for calling the renowned doctor a lower-tier candidate who will "end up looking presidential" because of real estate mogul Donald Trump's entry into the 2016 presidential race.
