The Limbaugh "Phony Soldiers" Kerfuffle

The crew at the Blogometer have a good round-up of the controversy surrounding Rush Limbaugh's "phony soldiers" phrase. What I find interesting, and sad, is how the Left has left the concept of "context" way behind them. When Media Matters criticizes Limbaugh, they lead one to believe that something said less than 2 minutes later, never mind the day before, is irrelevant to context.

Limbaugh himself suggests (and not without a little self-serving promotion) that you need to listen to his show for 6 weeks before you can get a good feel for it, especially his schtick. Media Matters and its liberal lemmings want to believe, at least for the moment, that Limbaugh began broadcasting yesterday, which is the only way they can say that he is abusive to the troops.

Trackback Pings


Don't listen to Rush Limbaugh myself. Just not really my cup of tea, I guess (there goes the "you only do what Rush Limbagh tells you" thing, sorry). Limbaugh has become a hate-buzzword that is used for a gut-level response in liberals, much like "OReilly", "Fox", or "Cheney", but, hey, I have an idea; let's ask the troops who they feel supports them most, Media Matters or Limbagh.

Indeed, but for the US Senate to spend time on a resolution condemning a private citizen who has been misquoted is truly amazing.
