America owes talk host Rush Limbaugh a debt of gratitude, Libertarians say

>>WASHINGTON, DC -- The entire nation owes radio broadcaster Rush Limbaugh a debt of gratitude, Libertarians say, because his ordeal has exposed every drug warrior in America as a rank hypocrite.

"One thing we don't hear from American politicians very often is silence," said Joe Seehusen, Libertarian Party executive director. "By refusing to criticize Rush Limbaugh, every drug warrior has just been exposed as a shameless, despicable hypocrite.

"And that's good news, because the next time they do speak up, there'll be no reason for anyone to listen."<<

10. Thank you. The most telling paragraph was the last:
"But if that's the case, these politicians have spent decades tearing apart American families for their own political gain. And that's an unforgivable crime."

8. Any Libertarian...
...who actually sticks to his principles and doesn't fixate on the monetary aspect to the exclusion of all other putative considerations (like Milton Friedman, kissing Augusto Pinochet's ass), is someone I can agree with @ 50% of the time. Glad when it happens.
