    Looks like it didn't do much for Franken did it? We have a President who went to Harvard, interesting.

    Is Harvard where he learned how to steal money from Boys and Girls Clubs?? If Rush Limbaugh stole $875,000. from a kids organization, I seriously doubt it would be swept under the rug so that he could run for the Senate.

    That conservatives have not STRONGLY denounced Limbaugh places them in the same fireplace as Muslims who have not STRONGLY denounced bin Laden.
    Did you just seriously make that comparison? Does the word "stupid" mean anything to you?

    A Senatorial seat and the Presidency is not too shabby in my book. But what's that compared to a HS graduate with a radio show right?

    If he did that, I would expect there would be charges. Can you provide a link for these criminal accusations you are making?

    Given that Franken just won a Senate seat and Rush was not even allowed to buy into a football team, it would appear not!

    Apparently people find El Rushbo more offensive.

    He defended Limbaugh. He asked him if he was going to do something about J-Lo and Fergie or apologize to Limbaugh. Maybe you missed his parting shot at the end. I would describe his tone as one of scolding.

As well, Lee went after Limbaugh for...not his slant on the news, your liberal media analogy once again misplaced. Lee went after Rush attempt to own a private company citing his integrity because of his political views. You aren't making good analogies here, imo, you're not defending your position either. What are you trying to say?
    Did Lee call Limbaugh up to Capitol Hill to question how he conducts business? King says that she didn't even mention his name. Yes, it was obvious who she was talking about and IIRC it was on the House floor where she said it(I'd like to see the roll call on how many people roll their eyes when she is up to speak. ). She questioned if he had the right image. She wasn't more specific than that. It's really not much of an attack. It was a waste of time for her to mention her opinion on the matter. And the fact that many people actually believe he said more than just one of nine quotes does indeed prove that he does have image issues, whether they are valid or not, they are there. And for Lee, I would bet that her motive is her opinion of his racial, not political, views.

    Asking questions that are false dichotomies is a way to attack. And did he not use Fergie and J Lo to stick up for a political ally? His tone was a bit more than just an inquiring one. Goodell even said that Limbaugh wasn't even up for consideration. He was commenting on the McNabb quote. King didn't back off after an explanation was given. In fact he didn't even offer Goodell a chance to respond to his final comments.

    My analogy was poor. But this is how I see things. Your mileage may vary.
