On October 2, 2007, Harry Reid of Nevada, on official United States Senate stationary, penned a letter to Mr. Mark Mays, CEO of Clear Channel Communications, lamenting comments made by the leading talk radio personality in the world, Rush Limbaugh.
In typical Democrat style, the letter was laced with hyperbole, half-truths (or less), and rhetoric all too befitting this self-anointed hypocritical and sanctimonious knight.
Senator Reid postures himself savior and arbiter of decency while railing against one of the most patriotic and humble admirers of American Service Men and Women in our country.
The phony soldier comment attributed to Mr. Limbaugh by the irrational Senator, suggested Rush was denigrating any soldier who spoke against the war and deliberately obfuscated the fact that Limbaugh’s comment was ascribed specifically to one individual who had been kicked out of the service after 44 days and then went on to report untrue and outlandish atrocities carried out by American Service Men in Iraq.
Additionally, this soldier’s lies were so egregious and inflammatory he was prosecuted for them and sentenced to five months in prison; and this is the best advocate Democrats could find to support their cause.
Senator Reid’s letter sites statistics showing dissatisfaction among service members in prosecution of this war, and also recognizes seven soldiers who wrote an op-ed expressing concern over Iraq strategy. Somehow, these citations bolster Reid’s opinion that Rush disparaged our soldiers.
This is the same logic that vilifies President Bush for vetoing an expansion of SCHIP and lying about the people who would be denied care by the veto; then parading out citizens already treated with SCHIP funds who would not qualify under Bush’s veto of an expansion of the program. In other words, anyone being treated through SCHIP currently will continue to receive SCHIP assistance regardless of Bush’s veto.
Reid is an idiot; or worse, he’s not an idiot, he’s an evil demagogue who knows idiots populate the Democrat constituency and is encouraging them to hate based on a lie.
Reid closes out his letter by asking Clear Channel’s CEO to repudiate Rush’s comments and demand that he apologize.
Now the best part:
Reid got 40 of his dumbest cohorts (two running for President) to sign this official correspondence and acknowledge their support of an obviously untrue disclosure. 41 United States Senators have deliberately signed an official document which can unquestionably be shown to be false.
Better is the best best part:
The CEO of Clear Channel gave the letter to Rush who has placed it on Ebay to raise money for American Marine families killed in Iraq. I wanted to bid on the letter to my wife’s chagrin. She needn’t worry however, the letter is currently bid up well over one hundred thousand dollars, a bit more than I can afford. Rush is going to match the funds raised by this auction for the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation and has asked all the Senators to match this donation as well.
Who is it who really supports our troops?
One has to scratch their head and ask, Hey dumb Senators, what did you think Rush was going to do with this letter?
While Rush is maligned by 41 idiot Senators:
Sean Penn, Harry Bellefonte, and Danny Glover support and admire Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.
Graham Nash and David Crosby state on TV that our soldiers are deliberately killing Iraqi women and children.
Bruce Springsteen suggests Bush policies go against our Constitution, yet he exhibits not a bit of contempt for assault on the First Amendment by the Fairness Doctrine.
In Washington D.C., the Second Amendment is not applicable to American citizens.
San Francisco does not allow military recruiters on public school campuses.
Where is the official Senate letter condemning these realties?
There isn’t going to be one because these Senators are anti-American, anti-Constitution, totalitarian ideologues who believe in a world order where the United States of America is subservient to an international body. They believe American sovereignty should be subjugated to this superior moral world entity where “open minded” cooler heads who don’t believe in the hocus pocus of God and Creator prevail. They are driven by sensible scientific explanations for our existence on earth.
In their view, Endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights is commentary which does not have literal meaning. The words are part of a greater whole living document to be applied by the appointed interpreters of the day where the essence of America is not within reach of the pedestrian man or women citizen capable of reading words, but reserved to those special appointees possessing wisdom and understanding of this delicate new world order.
The dumbest 41 would make any socialist proud.
America’s Founders would be underwhelmed.
For the record, ten Senators on the left refused to sign this embarrassing letter, although some of these chicken shits still used the opportunity to disparage Rush because of their ideological differences:
Evan Bayh D-Indiana
Jeff Bingham D-New Mexico
Maria Cantwell D-Washington
Russell Feingold D-Wisconsin
Tim Johnson D-South Dakota
Herb Kohl D-Wisconsin
Claire McCaskill D-Missouri
Ben Nelson D-Nebraska
Mark Pryor D-Arkansas
Joseph Lieberman I-Connecticut
