You sound like A Democrat, the wy you talk about Rush.

Are you kidding? Please quote anything that I said about Rush. And, by all means, include that which caused you to respond with such vigor.

t would be very easy to respond with something along the lines of, "I agree with Rush most of the time. But, I'm not a mind-numbed dittohead. Perhaps that's where you and I differ." However, despite the fact that you lobbed such an insult my way, I find little joy in responding in kind. So, I won't.

To me, the Kerry thing reads like a joke. If you prefer to believe otherwise, go ahead. As for any comparison to what the Dems might choose to whine about, who bleeping cares? Their lack of appreciation for wry humor doesn't mean I have to whine, too. Oh, and if it matters, it very well could be that whatever he said about Chelsea -- who, as far as I could tell, wasn't seeking the public eye -- was out of line. I'm guessing it was about her 'looks' (which she has little control over). Poor taste?

And I wouldn't believe Franken about anything. I certainly don't remember that comment about Jerry Garcia, although it's dead-on.

Whether or not the comment is dead-on -- I can't say I know much about Jerry Garcia -- Franken's recollection of it is; I remember it quite well. As for Franken, they say even a blind pig finds an acorn once in a great while. Even if Franken's point stinks, it's better than Imus's. Another thing, Imus has more than a few fans on FR; Franken is universally hated. Thus, the result of this comparison is ironic (humor of yet another sort).

Urban legend.

RUSH LIMBAUGH
SHOW: RUSH LIMBAUGH (9:00 PM ET)
November 6, 1992, Friday 11:15 AM

LIMBAUGH: Thank you. This show's era of dominant influence is just beginning. We are now the sole voice of sanity, the sole voice of reason. We are the sole voice of opposition on all television. This is the only place you can tune to to get the truth of the opposition of the one-party dictatorial government that now will soon run America. Oh, I mean, we are only beginning to enjoy dominance and prosperity. Most of these things on the in-out list are not even funny, but a couple of them--one of them in particular is.

David Hinckley of--of the New York Daily News wrote this, and what he has--he's got--it's very strange. He says, In: A cute kid in the White House. Out: Cute dog in the White House.' Could--could we see the cute kid? Let's take a look at- -see who is the cute kid in the White House.

(A picture is shown of Millie the dog)

LIMBAUGH: (Voiceover) No, no, no. That's not the kid.

(Picture shown of Chelsea Clinton)

LIMBAUGH: (Voiceover) That's--that's the kid. We're trying to...

As has been pointeed out, an urban myth that only liberals spread. However, I do think she was better looking before she teased her hair so much. Just a personal taste.
