Cowardice

Wow, so finally after a week ashore I'm starting to get riled up about politics again. I've been listening to this whole deal about the letter that Harry Reid sent Clear Channel about Rush Limbaugh. Now that it's nap time for James, I've got a few minutes to share my thoughts with you, Internet.

Rush's auction of the smear letter sent to Clear Channel president Mark Mays just earned $2,100,100.00 on eBay for the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation. Rush is matching it, for a total donation of $4,200,200. Wow.

If you're not up to speed, Rush spoke on his show about people who have claimed or exaggerated military service in Iraq in order to make false claims about he conduct of the war on terror - feeding the media the stories they want to print about the U.S. military committing atrocities afar in the hopes that an embarrassing withdrawal from the Middle East will result.

So on the floor of the Senate, on the clock, so to speak, the Honorable Senator Reid said,
If we take the Republican side at their word that last week’s [at the end of September sometime - sorry I was still deployed. -Robo] vote on another controversial statement related to the war was truly about patriotism, not politics, then I have no doubt that they will stand with us against Limbaugh’s comments with equal fervor.

I am confident we will see Republicans join with us in overwhelming numbers. Anything less would betray a double standard that has no place in the United States Senate.


Reid got 41 moonbat senators to sign a letter demanding that Clear Channel force Rush to apologize for his comments, trying twist Rush's keen observations and convince the great unwashed that Rush had trashed the military.

Rush took that letter, the text of which you can read here, and put it up for auction on eBay for charity. This is the beautiful thing about Rush's show and real conservatism. He looks at everything as an opportunity and I think it's a terrific example. It's a real charity helping real people, it's people making a conscious decision that is in their own self-interest, and it's a live demonstration of the positive attitude required to combat the spineless cowardice that the leaders of the left think America needs.

Here is a song for our boys and girls in the military:

I Wanna Go Home

The author has given permission to those currently serving in the military who buy the song to share it with nine of their best buddies, wives, husbands, parents, or children.

If you like it, pass it on.
