It's so rare that Rush is wrong, it's news when he is.

At least he'll apologize when he finds himself in error, which is more than what can be said about Democrats!

So can we assume that every single time a D or R makes a mistake, they're going to write an article about it?

Rush makes an error retracts his error and it's newsworthy.

The big story here is how Brown and Sen. Harry Reid had Paul Hackett blackmailed out of the race with pictures of "War Crimes" Hackett was in.

Must be a slow news day for the AP?

On a Fox News show this week (maybe Fox & Friends) they kept on to referring to Sherrod as "she". Finally a Producer put a pic of him and they all laughed about it.

So let's just go with Sherrod Brown is an African American female.

OK, so if I get this right, the Dems shunted aside an Iraq war vet, not for a black guy but for an old, white machine politician. And Rush is the one who is supposed to be embarassed?

I think Rush assumed the guy was black from the name. So what, he corrected it about 3 seconds later. yes he got emails but they did not cause the correction, he caught it within a few sentences.

It isn't even remotely worthy of a national news story.

"In 2003, Limbaugh was pushed off ESPN's NFL preview show after he said quarterback Donovan McNabb was overrated because the media wanted to see a black quarterback succeed..."

And yet, Bryant Gum Ball gets to get his knock in with a major media outlet and not a word is said.

The bias is so obvious that it is sickening....

Rush's attitude is probably, "Just as long as you spell my name correctly."

This is what the MSM considers news now ROFL

In the next few weeks I am almsot expecting the AP or NYT to have a front page headline about the whereabouts of the infamous Bat Boy.

(and again, now matter how ridiculous the MSM may be, tens of millions of people still believe every word they say.)

meanwhile AP ignored another announcer's explanation for why he was bored by the Winter Olympics...

Bryant Gumbel doesn't like white people.

AP is petty and dishonest.

No, he'll point out that AP is effectively admitting that Rush Limbaugh is generally extremely accurate, and so, when he makes a mistake, it's a page one story.

"Uh, Sherrod Brown's a white guy? Then I'm confusing him with somebody. OK, I'm sorry," Limbaugh said this week.

Why did it take so long for Rush to admit his mistake?

There needs to be an investigation into this matter!

Why did it take so long for Rush to contact the media, and let them know about this travesty?

We demand answers to these questions! NOW!

This is just one more example of a corrupt Republican party.

giggle - snicker.

Ok, Rush, your punishment is that you can't use the "All knowing" bit for one week.

Can't wait to hear him talk about the reaction to this.

Another scandle for the media!

Isn't it even more newsworthy that the RAT candidate for US Senate in Ohio is so unnoteworthy that Rush Limbaugh doesn't know whether the person is black or white?

Meanwhile AP never pointed out how wrong the Nation was when they claimed that George W. Bush had a scandelous business deal with Ken Lay because Bush's Astros played at Enron Field. The article was corrected to say that Bush's Rangers played at Enron Field. Then they scrapped the false lead articles altogether (the truth was that Bush sold the Texas/Arlington Rangers before the Houston Astros even had Enron Field).

Then again AP was the other prominent media outlet that published news about the faked National Guard memos. In a week's time, they did not reference the questionable nature of the documents.

This is the face of the enemy.

His name is Donald Newhouse, billionaire democrat and managing director of the Associated Press, a leftist propaganda organ comitted to undermining the GOP at any cost, including the security of the nation.

Unfortunately for me Herrod Brown is the congressman where I live. I can't say he's 'my congressman' because he's a turd.

He has done absolutely nothing for the people in this area and now he's going to run for Senate.

I can only hope that there are enough Ohioans left with a few brain cells who will defeat this democrat leech.

Please God.

I guess AP figures they can't get Bush--even though they have tried with all they had, so they may as well bash Rush.

Unlike Howard Dean and Al Franken who are right much less and never admit error.
