Kobayashi Maru: ‘Taking Out’ Drudge and Rush–A Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy?
Carl Hulse agrees: Limbaugh Latest Victim in War of Condemnation
A resolution introduced by 20 Democrats urges the House to condemn the “unwarranted slur” made by Mr. Limbaugh, though it does not condemn the broadcaster himself.
Their push, not coincidentally, comes after House and Senate Republicans maneuvered some Democrats into voting to condemn an advertisement by MoveOn.org in The New York Times last month that referred to Gen. David H. Petraeus as “General Betray Us.”
“What’s good for the goose is good for the gander,” Representative Steny H. Hoyer, Democrat of Maryland and the House majority leader, said Tuesday.
I do not like Limbaugh but this particular Dem maneuver is quite telling:
1. a game of tit-for-tat
2. while waffling: condemning the slur “but not the broadcaster himself.”
Or as Betsy puts it,
When the Democrats are reduced to editing a Limbaugh quote so that they can pretend to be all outraged they just expose the hollowness of their own support for our troops.
