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.
