Typical Limbaugh Filth
I haven't listen to Limbaugh much lately. Here's something that Dan Kennedy caught: Limbaugh discussed the courage of Aron Ralston, the mountain climber who tore off his own arm when it was stuck beneath a boulder. Here is what Kennedy reported about what Limbaugh said:

"You know, this is one of these stories, this is one of these acts of human courage, that people are going to strive to associate themselves with," Limbaugh intoned. "Such as Democratic presidential candidates. This is the kind of story — you know, you might have this guy in the audience and claim he’s one of your supporters or whatever. We might even hear from John F. Kerry, for example, that his Jewish grandfather was a mountain climber, and this story has reminded him that his Jewish grandfather was a mountain climber, and therefore he knows the rigors of this engagement, this enterprise, and can relate to what this Colorado climber went through. I mean, they’ll stop at nothing to build bridges of relatability to these acts of courage. They can’t cite many of their own." Heavy, theatrical throat-clearing. Commercial break.

Those of us familiar with Rush aren't surprised that he would single out Kerry the decorated war hero as an example of the alleged lack of courage of Democrats. It illustrates that courage in battle is irrelevant to the hard right. Limbaugh himself used an ass-pimple to get out of Nam and he lied to defend against a caller who mentioned that George W. Bush had flown the coop during the last year or so of his Air National Guard duties (Bush was pushed to the front of the line for the Air National Guard by friends of Daddykins in order for him to avoid Vietnam). Last year, Limbaugh smeared Kerry regarding his leadership ability in Vietnam because of an off-the-cuff comment Kerry made. When I responded to Limbaugh over that smear, I gave some advice; here it is again:

A larger lesson should be learned here: The issue of a political opponent’s Vietnam era status is irrelevant to the hard right:
1) If you are the hard right’s political opponent who avoided the Vietnam draft (even if you opposed the war), then the hard right calls you a draft dodger (conveniently ignoring the shitload of Republicans who were in favor of the war and whose fathers pulled strings to keep them out of Southeast Asia).
2) If you are the hard right’s political opponent and you not only served in Vietnam but also spent years of your life in the Hanoi Hilton, you become the victim of a whispering campaign by Rove and company that you are mentally unstable because of your imprisonment. During the 2000 campaign, Limbaugh even had a parody commercial "The McCain Mutiny" that had John McCain as the paranoid Captain Queeg. John McCain, it’s time to leave the GOP.
3) If you are the hard right’s political opponent who served in Vietnam as a highly-decorated commanding officer, then the hard right will come up with a reason to question your competence as an officer—no matter how many medals you were awarded.
This reveals a fundamental truth: the hard right (which encompasses most of the Republican Party) cannot be reasoned with—it must be discredited and defeated.

One more thing: Limbaugh is a part of the Clear Channel Radio Network which went jihad on the Dixie Chicks because one of them had the audacity to give her opinion about George W. Bush. Clear Channel's Limbaugh besmirches the courage of a decorated war hero. Where's the outrage?
