Before I rant, a smattering of statistics:
Number of USO tours done by Al Franken: 4
Number of USO tours done by Rush Limbaugh: 0
Number of well-received USO tours done by Al Franken: 4
Number of well-received USO tours done by Rush Limbaugh: 0
Just thought I would throw it out there. You know, for perspective.
So here’s one question — why does Limbaugh’s program enjoy exclusive access to American Forces Radio and the American forces in Iraq? Remember, Rush’s program is being broadcast on AFR with your tax dollars.
Secondly, even if you think the AFR doesn’t have to be "fair and balanced", is Rush "Prison-Abuse-Is-A-Fun-Fraternity-Prank" Limbaugh the right guy? This is going out over the airwaves in Iraq, under the auspices of U.S. military (who are supposedly trying to get to the bottom of the prison abuse scandals) . . . and many Muslims have radios and understand English quite well.
