Tit for Tat, Pot Calling Kettle, etc. October 1, 2007

OK…so the big back and forth about Rush Limbaugh and what soldiers he said or didn’t say were phony moved to the floor of the Senate. Rush has lots of defenders like this guy at the National Ledger. He’s really upset with Senator Reid wanting to silence Rush. He praises the Republican who put forth a resolution commending Rush (This guy of course has appeared on Rush’s show.). Want to bet he was cheering on the Republicans who were just as critical if not more so of the ad placed by MoveOn and never once claiming that the Republicans wanted to silence MoveOn? The right wing blogosphere defends Rush full bore claiming that he was just talking about a specific incident where there was indeed someone who falsely claimed to have been a soldier. But I read the full transcript. That case wasn’t mentioned in Rush’s rant until much later. Initially Rush was just agreeing with the caller who said that the MSM wasn’t talking to real soldiers because they were all supportive of the war.

And in related news who do “right-of-center” bloggers admire most on the right? A completely non-scientific survey says….Rush Limbaugh and his fellow attack dogs and flame throwers. Ah, yes. Sweet reason. We all have our temper issues that sometimes the internet doesn’t help us control but the top three on this list have generated more than their share of vitriol towards their political opponents. I don’t know who I respect less, them or the ones who emulate their attitudes and accept anything they say at face value.
