Whether mocking Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s or lying about…well, anything to make his point, Rush Limbaugh has never met a swamp bottom he couldn’t crawl under.
Limbaugh is a creature of habit. A habit of diminishing humanity by endless means.
But he topped it all yesterday as he chose one of America’s most solemn days to use as an ugly partisan club with which to hammer Democrats.
-Blamed the Clinton administration for “handicapping intelligence agencies and forgoing a strong military response.”
-Claimed “Clinton associates wished that the attacks had happened on Bill’s watch so he could have had a chance at greatness.”
-Alleged that soon after the attacks Hillary Clinton “echoed conspiracy-based claims that Bush knew of the attacks beforehand.”
He continued, making other allegations against other Democrats, buy how many and how valid or false his points might have been are not of any matter on this day. On any other day we could quibble over the credibility. But not on 9-11.
What does matter is that this man who says he speaks for so many millions, has shown that absolutely no sense of respect for the events, loss of life and the tragedy suffered by all Americans seven short years before.
And that, my friends, is just one more American tragedy.
