Cal. Sen. Leland Yee slams Limbaugh for mocking Chinese language
Add state Senator Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, to the list of people offended and peeved at talk radio host Rush Limbaugh's nearly 20-second, unintelligible mockery of the Chinese language. (As Salon pointed out, there's a long list of folks -- about 1.3 billion in China alone -- who likely share his anger.)

"Today, Rush Limbaugh reached a new low as he mocked the Chinese language and culture. His classless act is an insult to over 3,000 years of cultural history and is a slap in the face to the millions of Chinese Americans who have struggled in this country and to a people who constitute one-quarter of the world's population," Yee said in a written statement. "His comments belittle the contributions of the Chinese community and are sadly indicative of the bigotry that has often plagued his commentary and lined his pockets. Mr. Limbaugh owes the Chinese community an apology for this pointless and ugly offense."

decompose before Rush would offer an apology.

4. Making fun of ANY language is totally uncalled for.
EVERY language is rich and full and contains a wonderful heritage.

5. There was a time you only saw stories about the "ugly America"
from foreign sources. Today the ugly American is right here at home.
