    Let's lay our cards on the table. The fake outrage about Rush is a liberal media hyped effort to silence opposition speech. Lefties would have taken Rush off the air years ago but that darned 1st Amendment keeps getting in the way. Who ever heard of the president of the United States criticizing a citizen for using his 1st Amendment rights? Rush offered an apology for the words he used. Is it enough for the left?

    Oh no. I don't know anyone who wants him silenced. He's the Gift that keeps on giving.

    Lately it seemed that Rush was getting lazy in his old age. We'd get some talk on his favorite subject which is professional football and a bunch of political stuff that sometimes seemed moderate. Now we have to thank the left for waking up a sleeping giant just when we need him. He is pissed and motivated and he sounds like the old Rush. Thank you Barry for your usual trashing of the Constitution in criticizing a citizen for engaging in his 1st Amendment rights and thank you liberal media for your usual hypocrisy.

    He did? Did you hear it in his voice, with your own ears?

    All I saw was a press release on his website that could have been written by any of his staff, released late on a Friday, after his show, and when there is traditionally less media coverage.

    Pretty chickenshit.

    Maybe his staff is shoving more food in his mouth?

    No, I do wish him to be SILENCED, as he is an entertainer. Not my choice for entertainment but such is life.

    Yet here you are criticizing "the left" for exercising their 1st Amendment rights?
