Seriously Disgusting ...

I've always thought Rush Limbaugh was an idiot, but here's some incontrovertible proof.

This taken from mediamatters.org:

"Limbaugh baselessly compared Cindy Sheehan to Bill Burkett: 'Her story is nothing more than forged documents'

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."

Wow. It's amazing to see right-wing hacks such as Limbaugh and Ann Coulter go so far as to risk lambasting by their fellow conseratives. I remember when Coulter actually got fired by the National Review for some comments she made. I would hope that the Department of Defense would stick up for Sheehan, as much as they may disagree with her stance, from Limbaugh's baseless accusations.

Rush Limbaugh is a racist, sexist, homophobic ideologue and a hypocrite for going after those who don't cotton to his personal form of politics, but who doesn't have the balls to take it like a man (see his own drug difficulties). And he isn't as universally loved by the conservative community as he thinks. All groups have lines that arern't crossed, and Rush crosses them more than he cares to believe or acknowledge. But this one takes the cake.

Gives new meaning to the term "fat bastard."
