(CNSNews.com) – The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has launched an online petition for readers to express their outrage at conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh for saying last week that he wanted President Barack Obama to fail.
I signed in, I expressed myself and informed them that they were moronic twits. I was going to be really nasty but opted not to do so. They're looking for another 2,400 responses and I say we give it to them! Really.
UPDATE: The war of words is "on" in very real terms. However, President Obama's hubris in starting this row with Limbaugh is going to diminish B.O.'s standing, not Limbaugh's. When it comes to knowing and using words, Rush Limbaugh can beat B.O. with one hand and half his tongue (ghastly mental picture, that) tied behind his back! And that's assuming that Rush even is willing to continue the war of words with B.O. - after all, it's generally not considered sporting to enter into a war with someone who is unarmed! And intellectually, that's the situation here.
