Limbaugh Comment Gets DCCC Riled... Again
March 9, 2009 at 5:13 AM (PT)
WASHINGTON Democrats continue to take shots at RUSH LIMBAUGH, with the latest controversy being LIMBAUGH's comment about President OBAMA's health care bill, which the PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS host said FRIDAY will end up being "called the TED KENNEDY Memorial Health Care Bill."
KENNEDY is suffering from brain cancer, and DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE Exec. Director BRIAN WOLFF called the comments "truly outrageous" and "reprehensible," adding that the comment "demonizes a patriotic senator who has spent his life fighting so that every person has the opportunity to live the American dream."
The DCCC launched a petition drive to demand that REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE chair MICHAEL STEELE, who has had his own issues with LIMBAUGH in recent weeks, denounce LIMBAUGH.
The DCCC, which has been at the forefront of the party's aggressive campaign to position LIMBAUGH as the head of the REPUBLICAN PARTY, has also posted a gag web page with the "secret Republican Apology Machine," with a form letter allowing Republicans to "apologize" to LIMBAUGH for anything, using pull-down menus to customize the letter.
