    Looks like the Breck Girl's wife is doing his dirty work for him again. The MoveOn.org ad calling Gen. Petraeus a traitor, backfired hugely. Subesquent attempts to pretend Rush Limbaugh was denigrating our troops, flopped amidst laughter. Now Elizabeth Edwards is questioning whether Limbaugh's 4F draft deferment 40 years ago, was faked or somehow not legitimate. Without any evidence or medical opinion, of course, but liberals have clearly dispensed with any need for facts or evidence in their charges.

    As these people's desperation mounts, their "attacks" are getting sillier and more empty. They are truly delusional to believe anyone pays attention to their nutty spews, beyond their own dedicated fanatics.

    Elizabeth questions Limbaugh's draft deferment

    An Air America producer just sent over some transcript from an interview their Richard Greene (not our Richard Greene) conducted with Elizabeth Edwards, in which she questioned Rush Limbaugh's Vietnam exemption:

    My classmates went to Vietnam, he did not. He was 4F. He had a medical disability, the same medical disability that probably should have stopped him from spending a lifetime in a radio announcer’s chair; but it is true, isn’t it? If he has an inoperable position that allows him not to serve, presumably it should not allow him to sit for long periods of time the way he does. I think this is a serious enough offense for the people who fund him, who buy ads and allow him to be on the air, need to be asked if this is what they really stand for, do they think it is all right for someone who has never served to denigrate the men and women who have simply because they are expressing an opinion. Frankly, I thought that is what we are fighting for.

    Rush-baby got out of the draft because of a Polinoidal cist on his butt .... easily remedied. Moreover, he REQUESTED the deferment based on his own doctor's letter and never had a military physical. He did this as soon as his studen deferment expired.

    Seems you guys are the ones who are desperate since you know you're getting a huge butt-whipping come election-time as things now stand. :eusa_dance:

    Actually it is rather pitiful the way the Bushites keep trying to find rhyme or reason for their obvious demise. I for one don't know wether I will vote dem or Rep, or ind, for President, I know for certain I won't vote for either Hilary or Obama But it won't really matter, you will lose so many more Republican senators that we will have a Veto Proof congress.

    It seems Rush is not a perfect asshole after all. Did anyone read the snopes piece? Kinda makes him look like the fool he is. When the war and draft started many were ruled exempt who were later reclassified. Sounds like Rush is another heroic conservative right out of the same mold as Dickie.
