The Democrat Party senior leadership is feeling a Rush. Rush Limbaugh, that is. Late last week, DNC Chair Howard Dean, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, his deputy, Sen. Dick Durbin and Senatorial Committee chair, Sen. Chuck Schumer, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi all signed off in some form or another direct mail fundraising plans that will feature Limbaugh for their national party.So, who cares about the Constitution, this is about power! That is the message. These people disgust me. They will support the right of people to smear poo on the Virgin Mary, but God forbid you do an entertaining radio show that is against their political views.
Rep. Henry Waxman has asked his investigative staff to begin compiling reports on Limbaugh, and fellow radio hosts Sean Hannity and Mark Levin based on transcripts from their shows, and to call in Federal Communications Commission chairman Kevin Martin to discuss the so-called "Fairness Doctrine."
"Limbaugh isn't the only one who needs to be made uncomfortable about what he says on the radio," says a House leadership source. "We don't have as big a megaphone as these guys, but this all political, and we'll do what we can to gain the advantage. If we can take them off their game for a while, it will help our folks out there on the campaign trail."
You know, you liberal kooks better be careful, and so too you moderates. First, they came for Limbaugh. Then they came for Hannity. Then it was Cindy Sheehan, by the time they got around to everyone else, there was nobody left to stop them. Don't let the US become 1930s Germany or Stalin's Russia.
As I am sure Glenn Reynolds has already said... They said that if George W. Bush were re-elected President that the First Amendment would get shredded and used as toliet paper. And they were right...
