    I am not a particular fan of Rush but he made the case.

    I write as one who served during the Korean Police Action, whose father served in WWI, whose five older brothers served in WWII in which one was killed. Only my baby brother, my sister, and my mother did not serve in the military during time of war.

    Those young men and women in Iraq all volunteered. [I wish there were no women in harms way.] I am so proud of what these young men and women are doing and my heart breaks each time I hear of the death of one. The amazing thing is that so many are willing to go back.

    I believe that the radical left in this country are so overwhelmed with either self loathing or such hatred of this country that they will go to any extreme to see it fail in whatever it attempts. [​IMG]

    on one of his oxycontin tablets. ;)

    I see once again, ASLANSPAL, that when you can't debate the substance that you resort to smear tactics. You are truly a typical Leftist.

    Amen, Rush! You know, there's a reason the liberals hate him so--Rush is right. Again. And it gives them fits. I'm very sorry for Cindy Sheehan's loss, and I'm sorry that America has lost one of her best who was fighting for her. Liberals out there, take note--these folks volunteered for this. And for that we should be proud of them, and grieve for their loss, not shame it by spitting on the cause they were fighting for.

    ASLANPAL, what happened to "appropriate language". Or, is this a liberal's idea of what is appropriate? Your snide comments are made even more strange when one considers that yoiu admit to being from the state that brought us the only president to say "I loath the military".

    Hey, ASLANSPAL, care to try to deal with the substance of what Rush said? Do you disagree with his take on who makes America work?

    Limbaugh baselessly compared Cindy Sheehan to Bill Burkett: "Her story is nothing more than forged documents"
    Listen to this audio clip Nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh equated the actions of Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a soldier killed in Iraq, with those of Bill Burkett, the retired Texas Air National Guard officer who provided CBS' 60 Minutes with unauthenticated documents regarding President Bush's National Guard record. Sheehan is currently staging an anti-war protest outside Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas. Limbaugh said that Sheehan's "story is nothing more than forged documents."

    Sheehan's "story" is, in fact, that her son died while fighting in Iraq. A Humvee mechanic, Spc. Casey Sheehan was one of seven U.S. soldiers killed in Baghdad's Sadr City on April 4, 2004, by rocket-propelled grenades and small arms fire.

    From the August 15 broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show:

    LIMBAUGH: I mean, Cindy Sheehan is just Bill Burkett. Her story is nothing more than forged documents. There's nothing about it that's real, including the mainstream media's glomming onto it. It's not real. It's nothing more than an attempt. It's the latest effort made by the coordinated left.

    My comment: Limbaugh went bizzaro the other day
    and so he had to compensate with his puffed out
    pontificating for those who put him as an Idol.
    He is a major money raker and he knows how to
    "sucker born every minute" P.T. Barnum people.imho

    oh hear it is the audio since we are into that;)

    I don't find that quote in the transcript that I posted. Would you mind pointing out which paragraph it is in?

    I see you are still not dealing with the substance. I guess Leftists still can't defeat Rush in debate after 17 years.

    Limbaugh has been called "fat" by just about every liberal out there. You can always tell when they have no answer for his always cogent points. They are like little kids on the platground. "Fattie, fattie, fattie."
    How so very immature and pedantic.

    Rush is also not fat any more. But Leftist ideology is behind the times anyway.

    I get the rare pleasure of listening to Rush, but when I heard he had this on his site I went and watched it a few times. Excellent Job Rush. Excellent Job.
