WhackyNation’s second craziest crazy, Mark Gardner has been obsessing over the MoveOn ad. He’s been demanding that Darcy Burner denounce an ad by a group that didn’t endorse her. So when it turned out that Rush Limbaugh said something much worse than what MoveOn wrote (although in fairness to Limbaugh, he was probably high on time release pain killers when he said it). Anyway, thehim wrote a quick joke post on the subject asking if Dave Reichert would condemn Rush. Not understanding irony, Gardner wrote this:
Clear Channel CEO Mark Mays basically told Harry Reid to “kiss it” with a dismissive letter to the feeble Senate Majority Leader Tuesday night.
He thinks it’s a free speech issue, but the letter Reid wrote didn’t say Limbaugh should be fired. I’m not sure that the letter was the proper role of the Majority Leader, but I am quite certain it shouldn’t be only one side of a political debate attacked by Congress.
…as a broadcaster and leader of this company, I will always defend the right of our employees and contracted talent to voice their opinions under the protections provided by the First Amendment.
Not about the First Amendment.
Read that: “kiss it, you weasal.”
weasal? Did Harry change his name to Al when I wasn’t looking?
So that is what the Democrats get for trying to smear Rush Limbaugh.
A letter back from Rush’s boss saying how they like the First Amendment, but that doesn’t deal with the substance of Reid’s letter? I’m not sure what’s so bad about that?
At controversy is the Democrats using an article published by their propaganda website, Media Matters, which quoted Rush for saying American soldiers who oppose the Iraqi War were “phoney soldiers.” Of course, he did not say that. He was taken out of context, as he explains here.
phoney? I know Rush Limbaugh is a multi-millionaire talk show host, and I’m just some asshole on the intertubes but a few things: first if you’re only referring to one person, don’t use the plural, or people won’t believe you when you back track. And if you don’t want to be accused of attacking vets, it might be a good idea not to compare wounded vets to suicide bombers! Also, the only place to get a good transcript is Media Matters not the highly edited one from Rush’s defense of himself.
But leftist twerps everywhere have jumped on the lame, Democrat spin machine in order to smear Limbaugh.
That’s thehim. He’s moving, so this leftist twerp will have to make the point that by Mark Gardner’s logic Mark Gardner is objectively for calling soldiers who disagree with him phony (or phoney). Also, presumably Dave Reichert and every other Republican who refuses to condemn Limbaugh. Why do they hate the troops?
Sorry, twerps, including you, Reid. It ain’t working.
Yeah Reid. You sent a letter to Rush Limbaugh’s boss, and he only responded to your letter, allowing the controversy continue in a way that makes the point that Republicans hate the troops. It ain’t working. Twerps. Blarg.
