KEEP ON TALKING, RUSH....

KEEP ON TALKING, RUSH.... Ted Kennedy has long been a popular target for conservatives' ire, but since the Massachusetts senator was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, and suffered a seizure on Inauguration Day, Republican attacks "have basically ceased."

Rush Limbaugh didn't get the memo.

Rush Limbaugh carved a new notch in his ever-expanding belt of tastelessness when he predicted Sen. Ted Kennedy would be 6 feet under by the time Congress passed health care reform.

"Before it's all over, it'll be called the Ted Kennedy memorial health care bill," the conservative radio host sneered on his show yesterday. <...>

Brian Wolff, executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee denounced the remark as "reprehensible."


Media Matters has the audio.

What did Republicans have to say about their buddy joking about Kennedy's death? Not much -- the RNC and the party's congressional leadership didn't want to comment. Imagine that.

The DCCC's Wolff added, "Leader Limbaugh crossed the line. National Republicans must stand up to their leader, Rush Limbaugh, and tell him that enough is enough."

As is often the case, especially lately, the more Limbaugh talks, the better it is for Democrats.

1. Oxyrush should join a circus.
It takes a real contortionist to shove both feet into your mouth while you got your head up your ass.

2. And how many angry rants does Rush have left before he has a major cardiac event?
STFU, Rush. It's not wise to tempt fate.

5. Funny thing is
jerks like this seem to hang around. Maybe God decides to keep them here for their humorous/entertainment value. A better explanation is that his "angry rants" are so phony they don't even raise his bp or increase his heart rate. It is just a big act and Rush is smiling all the way to the bank.

7. UK vs US
In the UK, Brown suspends PMQs over the death of Cameron's son and sends condolences, in the US you have a radio talk show host wish death. The wonderful world of democracy and freedom of speech.
