Rush Limbaugh responded to an actual war hero who confronted him for his smears of soldiers who disagree with Bush’s war was to by saying that the Purple Heart vet was a dupe being used by liberal "terrorists" to attack Rush in a suicide bombing.
"This is such a blatant use of a valiant combat veteran, lying to him about what I said and then strapping those lies to his belt, sending him out via the media and a TV ad to walk into as many people as he can walk into. This man will always be a hero to this country with everyone. Whoever pumped him full of these lies about what I said and embarrassed him with this ad has betrayed him, they aren’t hurting me they are betraying this soldier," Limbaugh said.
Really cool, Rush. Fortunately the Iraq war vet — Brian McGough — isn’t sitting still for Rush’s latest disgusting smear.
So, Rush Limbaugh called me a "suicide bomber." More slander from the high and mighty sitting in his chair nursing the boils on his ass. I can assure you that I am no suicide bomber and that I can think for myself.
Support our troops by demanding that Congress expel Rush’s toxic pollution from our troops’ air waves. Sign General Clark’s petition.
