Democrats blast Limbaugh for comment on Kennedy
Source: AP


WASHINGTON A Democratic official rebuked conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh on Friday for suggesting a health care proposal will be named in memory of Sen. Edward Kennedy, who is battling brain cancer. On his radio show, Limbaugh said President Barack Obama's proposed health care revisions will be championed by "the liberal lion Teddy Kennedy."

"Before it's all over, it'll be called the Ted Kennedy Memorial Health Care bill," Limbaugh said.

Oh, up yours, Rush.

18. I wish he would stop being a distraction
The Democrats have so much more important work to do than constantly worry about what Limbaugh is doing.

4. It is clear that like Coulter, the Limp is there to stir the water
to say outrageous things just to generate a reaction.

I wish that we just ignored both.

11. No he got caught with the Viagra..
And apparantly the Dominican Republic trades in young boys....I was looking for decent links but I don't want to use any I found.

<snip>
In June of 2006, nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh on his way back from the Dominican Republic, was caught with a prescription bottle (not in his name) filled with the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra.

25. Oh, it's real all right

and comes on the tail of his advocating jail for all illegal drug users, while at the same time he himself is illegally buying oxycontin, and gets picked up on the way back from the Dominican Republic with an illegal prescription for Viagra.

Of course, as we know, the same rules don't apply to him.

23. Let's hope it's later...
The clock is ticking. Right now the Republicans have about one year to get their act together and start some serious fund-raising. Every day they spend in a tizzy over Rush and his massive ego is one less day they have to prepare for the mid-term elections.

I'm loving this.

31. GOP politicians should be forced to go on record regarding this comment
Countless times Dem politicans were pressured to denounce, renounce, reject, repudiate, etc. some comment or another, such as moveon.org's "General Betrayus" or Sen. Durbin's remarks comparing Gitmo to a Nazi camp.

Isn't it funny how the news media ceased the practice of putting heat on politicans to go on record concering controversial comments when the ones making them are Repukes?

40. The attention the Democrats and the media is giving him
is just free advertising for him. He's loving it, I bet he has a record year for profits. I don't see why they want him to be the boogie man so bad, they are playing right into is nds by making him relevant in the first place. Robert Gibbs even admitted all the attention they are giving limbaugh and CNBC mouthpieces is counterproductive.

44. So You Just Want Everybody To Ignore..........

,,,the spectacle of Republican officials kissing Limbaugh's boil-encrusted ass, and apologizing to him for any critical remarks? Ignore the rock-star reception he got at that conservative conclave in D.C.? We need to ride these images just as far and as hard as we can, they do us us incalculable good.

The days of turn-the-other-cheek, wussy liberalism are over. Get with the program......

47. He and Ann Coulter have no censors in their brains.
It is the censor in each of us that makes us fit for human company, because every one of us has thoughts that are shameful or evil. But I suspect that in the case of these two sociopaths, the censor has been destroyed by a combination of drugs and misdirected positive reinforcement. They get paid millions and get worshipped by other sociopaths, so they keep saying outrageous things, with each new outrageous thing upping the ante for the next one.

But their drug-addled brains can't understand that at a certain point their behavior will become counterproductive even for their ownsome embarrassment over having her on these days. And she used to be one of Bill Maher's favorite guests, but even he never has her on any more.

51. He's so pathetic
Edited on Sat Mar-07-09 06:13 PM by ngant17
This arrogant man lectures about morality, then secretly travels to the DR for $20 sex acts with young third world hookers.

The Dominican Republic is famous for its cheap hookers. The bad news is these hookers have an estimated rate of HIV infection of 12%. There is no other place on Earth besides subsahara Africa with higher rates of HIV. This is high risk behavior. High risk behavior is typical of an addict, and Rush is an addict. He has been in rehab at least 3 times.

The Rush incident reminds me a little of what happened with Neil Bush, who was finally divorced by his wife after he admitted gang-banging hookers in Thailand and catching herpes along the way. Here he discusses the finer points of his debauchery with Marshall Davis Brown, his wife Sharon's divorce attorney:

BUSH: "I had sexual intercourse with perhaps three or four, I don't remember the exact number, women, at different times. In Thailand once, I have a pretty clear recollection that there was one time in Thailand and in Hong Kong."

BROWN: "And you were married to Mrs. Bush?"

BUSH: "Yes."

BROWN: "Is that where you caught the venereal diseases?"

BUSH: "No."

BROWN: "Where did you catch those?"

BUSH: "Diseases plural? I didn't catch..."

BROWN: "Well, I'm sorry. How ... how many venereal diseases do you suffer from?"

BUSH: "I've had one venereal disease."

BROWN: "Which was?"

BUSH: "Herpes."

BROWN: "Did you pay them for that sex?"

BUSH: "No. My recollection is, where I can recall, they came to my room."
