  1. Limbaugh and other conservative zealots seem to be hollering "support our troops" ad nauseum... until those troops start to disagree with them. I guess the term "phony soldier" applies to anyone who doesn't parrot the administration's lies.

    How horribly disrespectful of the sacrifice these people have made for their country. Of course, we'll never hear a word of apology from that bloated, drug-addled, lying, hypocritical mess.

  2. After hearing the original RL commentary, I assumed he was targeting the one army dropout who was lying about serving in Iraq and witnessing US atrocities against Iraqi civilians, as he went into great lengths about it all, but I suspect he later made the generalization that all soldiers opposed to the war are fake or phony, as he does with so many things. However, these he said/he said arguments typically waste a lot of time and serve little purpose. RL is not only deaf, he is self-blind.

  3. Anon at gmail.com has it right. But the same people who will blast Faux News treat the words of Media Matters as if they issued from a burning bush.

  4. Why is this 300 lb. sack of shit still alive? Why is Michael Savage still alive? Ann Coulter? Ad nauseum.

    Why is it that primarily liberals, those preaching civil liberties, etc., are the ones who get offed while these neo Nazis grow fatter and richer [Coulter's eating disorder notwithstanding].

  5. Rush is lower than whale shit. I suspect that the recent and desperate bleetings of rightist demagogues like this sack of excrement and the shrill sack of bones, coulter, is due in large part because average americans are starting to see them for the shameless, souless idealogues that they are. i see it as a last hurrah.

  6. Turning on the soldiers sucked into fighting a losing, unpopular war? Wow, the war in Iraq just got Vietnam-ier.
