Knowledge (amongst the masses) is power.
Lack of knowledge is the left's ticket to power.
Seriously, you have to borderline retarded to believe that Rush Limbaugh would slander the men and women of the American Armed Forces in such a manner. He's done and said some pretty off-the-wall shit in his time, with which I've vehemently disagreed, but this is not such an instance.
As for Harry Reid and his dingbat friends asking Congress to pass a resolution condemning the misquoted words of a radio personality (just as much an entertainer as a Barbra Streisand or a Sean Penn), they couldn't have come across as a bigger bunch of wankers had they all been blasted by the Karl Rove mind control ray gun (pat. pending) and turned into a bunch of marionettes in some VWRC puppet show.

That's pretty much all I have to say on this non-story.
