You've GOT to be kidding me.

Rush Limbaugh has GOT to be back on the drugs, because he had this to say about Cindy Sheehan and her protest:

From the August 15 broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show (courtesy of Media Matters):

LIMBAUGH: I mean, Cindy Sheehan is just Bill Burkett. Her story is nothing more than forged documents. There's nothing about it that's real, including the mainstream media's glomming onto it. It's not real. It's nothing more than an attempt. It's the latest effort made by the coordinated left.
I don't even know what to say. Likening Cindy Sheehan's plight to the guy that produced the "unauthenticated documents" surrounding Georgie's National Guard service is as malicious as it is cognitively dissonant. Rush has got a serious case of elephantiasis of the nutsack, because it takes some major balls to draw such an outlandish parallel. The audacity and ruthlessness with which the Right is attacking Sheehan is just reprehensible. For fuck's sake, Rush. Cindy's son died in the war. What is not "real" about that? Do you need to stick your hand into a dead, rotting soldier's flesh to see that the bodycount from this war is real and meaningful? Some people, I swear.

Rush is a sicko, that's for sure.

And lots of rightwing bloggers are dumping on Cindy Sheehan. It takes such courage to shit all over someone whose son got killed in Iraq and then her husband divorced her. These wingnuts think it's just hilarious. They're sick people.

Limbaugh epitomizes the chickenhawk ethic, if you ask me. He didn't fight in his generation's war, he fans the flames of belligerence, and he refuses to encourage his listeners to sign up and go to Iraq. This latest statement of his shows that he is a sociopath, pure and simple.

Daryn Kagen should dump him now!

He should switch form Meths to Barbituates. The ones he is taking now make him mean...

Wait, he is mean!
