Columny

Meet+The+Press+XqHaioWsfGMl Last week, Maureen Dowd had fun enraging the Archbishop of New York. Now, she's going after Rush. Them's low hanging fruit for me, so I'm not going to discuss the substance of her column. I did love the writing. An excerpt:

I went on to columny, as my pal Bill Safire called it, and Rush went on to calumny.

As he and Sarah Palin conduct their auto-da-fé of moderate Republicans
— “Moderates by definition have no principles,” he told his radio
audience on Monday — Limbaugh is more than ever the face of his party,
as Rahm Emanuel said.

He’s also the mouth.

Limbaugh is
right that Democrats tend to dither too much. They’re always wondering
if they’re doing the right thing, indulging in on-the-one-hand,
on-the-other paralysis by analysis, seeing, as James Carville put it,
“six sides to the Pentagon.”

  1. “Limbaugh is right that Democrats tend to dither too much.”
    I don’t listen to Limbaugh, but from the general drift of talk radio, I suspect that Limbaugh was probably saying that Obama (rather than Democrats generally) is a ditherer, probably specifically on Afghanistan. When is Obama going to have enough information about Afghanistan to either commit to it fully or pull out? He can’t split the difference on this one. The longer he waits, the more people die–for nothing.

  2. So Rusky gets punked because he does not fact check (Not the first time)? Wow, what a surprised.
    Oh, and when contronted that he was punked, he defended himself by saying “we stand by the fabricated quote because we know Obama thinks it anyway” (Yeah good try to save face, what a loser)
    After so many years of mis-labeling and mis-characterizing others he gets smacked down by the NFL “Not For Limbaugh”. Way to go NFL, great job!
