Rush Limbaugh and Evolution

LGF points us in the direction of a post by Rush Limbaugh, who waxes about the discovery of the almost complete primate fossil from the Messel Pit in Germany. He once again, shows why people who ought to know better, often don't. He writes:
It's a one-foot, nine-inch-tall monkey, and it's a lemur monkey described as the eighth wonder of the world. "The search for a direct connection between humans and the rest of the animal kingdom has taken 200 years - but it was presented to the world today --" So I guess this is settled science. We now officially came from a monkey, 47 million years ago. Well, that's how it's being presented here. It's settled science. You know, this is all BS, as far as I'm concerned. Cross species evolution, I don't think anybody's ever proven that. They're going out of their way now to establish evolution as a mechanism for creation, which, of course, you can't do, but I'm more interested in some other missing link. And that is the missing link between our failing economy and prosperity.
As far as he is concerned. Rush, what is "cross species evolution" exactly? If he means what I think he means, it is evolution at the species level, and yes, we can show that. Just another opportunity for a huge GOP supporter make an ass of himself by showing that he has no idea what he's talking about.
