Fight­ing words

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

There’s noth­ing Rush Lim­baugh rel­ishes more than get­ting into the mid­dle of a good ver­bal brawl, and he’s found one with Sen. John Kerry’s spokesman, David Wade.

It all be­gan when Mr. Lim­baugh an­nounced two weeks ago on his ra­dio show that the Swift Boat Vet­er­ans for Pres­i­dent Bush who chal­lenged the Viet­nam-era rec­ol­lec­tions of the Mas­sachusetts Demo­crat in the 2004 pres­i­den­tial cam­paign “were right on the money, and no­body has dis­proven any­thing they claimed in any of their ads, state­ments, writ­ten com­men­taries or any­thing of the sort.” Mr. Wade? “At first I thought, that’s not Rush, that’s just the OxyCon­tin talk­ing. None­the­less, this is a de­spi­ca­ble but un­sur­pris­ing new lie from a man whose clos­est brush with com­bat came when cus­toms of­fi­cials tried to take away his Vi­a­gra.” Wow! “This portly ped­dler of hate is once again wrong on the facts,” Mr. Wade con­tin­ued. Ouch! “Rush Lim­baugh’s ig­no­rance and de­ter­mi­na­tion to di­vide Amer­i­cans is just an­other re­minder that you can’t spell ‘Rush Lim­baugh’ with­out the let­ters L-I-A-R.”

Stay tuned, ob­vi­ously, for round three.
