We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
RWNH. I think this sort of thing just makes life more interesting for Rush. He is beyond intimidation by the Hillary-Soros Media Matters. Nobody who ever listened to him for ten minutes would imagine that he would insult a soldier. This pure BS "story" will be gone in two days.
What the story is really about is about Media Matters and MoveOn flexing their muscles at the beach.
"I gave a talk last night on the presidential race to an audience of approximately 100 very successful business people and their spouses, and in the Q&A that followed, a soft spoken woman asked a question in very soft and almost grieved tones: What has happened to the Democrats and the media that they are so filled with hate? The backdrop was the attack on Rush, particularly Tom Harkin's churlish suggestion that Rush was using drugs. She explained further that she doesn't understand what could motivate the sort of behavior we are seeing on the left."
