Hitting Below the Belt

As much as I am loathe to being a one trick pony and continuing to flog the Limbaugh phony flap, there are times when it becomes necessary. Besides, ignoring the likes of Limbaugh is the worst thing to do, because it only encourages this sort of behavior to continue. And really, who is more deserving of being knocked down a few pegs than the exalted grand master of the Dittoheads?

Rush should have put down the shovel when the trowel hit bedrock. Instead, he asked for a jackhammer and kept on digging. VoteVets.org released an ad featuring veteran Brian McGough, chastising Limbaugh for spreading lies about his service and that of so many other soldiers. The Big Giant Head responded to VoteVets in a way reminiscent of his slur of Michael J. Fox: he questioned McGough's competency and even worse, suggested that VoteVets was "strapping those lies to his belt, sending him out via the media and a TV ad to walk into as many people as he can".

Rush's comment was clearly a not-so-subtle allusion to McGough being akin to a suicide bomber (only armed with lies) but it may have been wise to have an intern do a little research prior to making this statement since McGough, who received a severe head injury in Iraq, was the victim of a real suicide bomber.

Keeping digging, Rush. With any luck you won't need anyone else's help to bury yourself.

As always, Meme has the Rush reactions.

Update: Fellow ASZer Steven weighs in with a call to action.

Hey man, I saw your post at ASZ -- congratulations on the new gig.

I can't say no to offers to write here and there.

Keep up the good work.
