Paid for by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, http://dscc.org, and not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.
Dear Sen. Reid, I have always spoken disparagingly of Lee Harvey Oswald. But then I learned that he served in the United States Marine Corps. I will inform others who speak ill of Mr. Oswald to respect his service.
Get me a bucket, I’m gonna puke.
This is getting ridiculous. They just keep on lying and their little sheep believe it. It really pisses me off that they continue to do this. At no time did Rush say anything like this. But hell, if you keep on repeating a lie sooner or later you tend to believe it.
So, let me get this staright. The Democrats are the ones who get to decide that someone has gone 'too far'? There is so much wrong with this letter that I wouldn't know where to begin. Dingy must need money.
Used their form and put MY words in it.
“Dear Mr. Mays,
DO NOT PAY ANY ATTENTION TO THE TRAITOROUS DOGS IN WASHINGTON.
RUSH SHOULD GET AN APOLOGY FROM REID”
Wonder how far it goes?
One wonders to the depths to which dhimmicrats can sink. Evidently, the number is non-computable.
Lee Harvey Oswald served. Jesse Macbeth did not.
Lee Harvey Oswald did not claim that he served in Iraq and slaughtered families. Jesse Macbeth did.
Lee Harvey Oswalk has not been quoted in the foreign press in condemnation of the current US war effort. Jesse Macbeth has.
Perhaps Dingey Harry can tell us about the stellar military service of Dan Rather, Randi Rhodes, Al Franken, Rosie O’Donnell and Sean Penn, since they have no problem advocating surrender.
And I guess it takes a lot of courage, Dingey Harry, for you and your ilk, including phoney record Harkin and that wonderful Marine Murtha to slander soldiers and private citizens from the comfy floor of the Senate, where you enjoy immunity from civil liabilty for the statements you make.
You and your ilk make me fear for our country, sir. Here’s a thought, you despicable TRAITOR, why don’t you ask the Marines currently serving in Iraq, who DO listen to Rush vi the internet, whom they trust more.
Then do the nation a favor and resign.
What liars. Even if Rush said what they say he said (which he did NOT), I’ve heard FAR WORSE coming from the senate floor and in the congress by these stupid lying liberals.
I cannot stand them!
If you aren’t a Democrat, you’ve gone to far.
If MoveOn.PAC disagrees with your positions on the war, you’ve gone to far (just ask Lieberman).
Bite me, Harry.
Heh. I guess Harry holds a grudge.
If this was an actual truthful story the NY Slimes and Washington Compost would be doing 50 days of front page stories.
It's one thing to call me "Dingy Harry" - it's another to insult our men and women in uniform, calling those who oppose the war "phony soldiers" as Rush did during his Sept. 26 broadcast.
What uniform did Jesse Macbeth wear? Where was he deployed?
Harry is a bigger thug that Senator Joseph McCarthy and I want to see this moment in history books.
Jesse MacBeth did not hide his rifle in John Kerry’s cousin’s garage. Lee Harvey Oswald did.
Now that’s a great idea. Here’s what I sent:
“Mr Mays - I thought I take the opportunity afforded to me by that traitorous Senator Harry Reid under guise of an email to the DNC faithful to tell you that rather than chastise Mr. Limbaugh, who has done more for the morale of our fighting men and women, you should instead devote a few billboards to ask Harry Reid to resign immediately from the Senate for hiding behind his immunity from prosecution by slandering a patriotic American from the floor of the Senate.”
If this e-mail is paid for by the DNC, then isn’t he violating a rule against politicing in the “hallowed halls” of congress?
Aren’t his initials written as P.O.S.?
Hmm....perhaps we should forward it to the FEC?
I used their form and commented how the libs hate the truth and Rush speaks the truth. Said Rush has my support 100% and to keep up the pressure on the libs and ended it with NO APOLOGY because he has nothing to apologize for.
I caught that too. He was howling.
And then he immediately refuted Harry’s claim about Rush slandering the men and women who DID serve in uniform.
Yep. It's heard in Iraq. So far, I have yet to run into any member of our Armed Forces who is insulted by Rush's characterization.
Looks like you're just whining at the wind again, Harry.
While widely reported, the Military Times poll has a number of caveats along with partial disclosure of how the poll was taken; it is worth a read.

How about this Congressman Steve Israel clown and the lies he is spouting??? I am LIVID!
The average joe is hardly ever questioned on matters like these and we should remember that our troops can’t take heart from constant carping.
Most soldiers want the most help they can get and likely hate entertaining the thought they may be abandoned in the heat of politics and luke warm public support.
Hey reid....you don’t NORMALLY avoid Rush Limbaugh. Who in theee hell do you think your kidding? You probably listen to him every single day or you have your staff listen to him. Rush knows where its at, knows who all of you “phonies” are and knows the truth and more importantly tells the truth which is less than we can say for you. So, don’t say yhou dont’ normally avoid Rush...you listen to him so YOU can find out how lousey you are. You will leave your office and be remembered as the wimp while Rush will always and forever be remembered as a man of honor.
“Lighten up, Dingy.”
The difference between McCarthy and Reid is that McCarthy was right.
It’s one thing to call me “Dingy Harry” -
Does “Phoney Senator” come to anyone else’s mind? There are several names that could follow that title.
Is it possible to ratings to go negative?
What a jerk you are, Harry.
Soldiers oppose the politically correct crap imposed upon them in fighting this war, which is instigated by you and your kind, not President Bush. (Although, I wish Bush had to cojones to just tell you guys to get bent.)
So, don't give us that 35% crap and try to make it look like our soldiers are against this war itself, because they most emphatically ARE NOT.
YOU insulted the troops when you said that the war was lost. Have you apologized, Harry?
You suck, Harry.
Do you remember when Dan Quayle gave a speech criticizing “Murphy Brown” and the all the libs complained about government “intimidation?”
If that was intimidation, what do they call this????
Yep. But someone needs to be taking notes for the history books and future bio-pics.
A CHILL WIND.
He lies by ommission. What is their approval rating for the Democrats in Congress’ handling of the war?
I was listening to Rush to hear his side of the story. I listened in shock as he actually invited you to come on his show and say this to his face. And he has done this for last several days!
I was sure you would settle this once and for all and I have been waiting for your appearance on his show.
Please make us all proud and stand up to Rush in person. He has called you out, rise to the challenge.
Surely you were listening to Rush when he used the term "phony soldier" and you are not just relying on others like the New York Times (think Jason Blair), The Washington Post (think Janet Cooke) or CBS (think Dan Rather) to tell you what they think he said and what you should do about it.
You surely can't be that irresposible.
Or in the battle of wits are you just another "phony soldier?"
Interesting that he put it in writing outside the confines of his Congressional protection. Does this not open him to lawsuit?
I did the same thing with slightly different words.
I believe that this latest antic of the left wingers will get even more of a backlash for the Republicans than the moveon.org ad calling our general a betrayer.
Besides, since when is the United States Senate in the business of chastising talk radio hosts?
Oh, wait. I think I just answered my own question. The answer rests with Hillary starting up the likes of organizations like Media Matters.
They’re never going to get any work done if all they want to do is bicker like a bunch of three year olds.
This definitely looks like a misuse of funds from this organization—surely there are laws against issuing fatwas against private citizens?!?
DINGY Harry (dingy like the boat and dingy like the shirt collar) has finally gone around the bend!!
CONGRESS, TAKE ACTION AGAINST YOUR OWN!!! >:-(
PHONY PATRIOTS PERSIST IN PURSUING PLEASANT PUBLIC RADIO PERSONALITY RUSH LIMBAUGH; CONGRESS CONVENES EMERGENCY MEETING TO HAVE REID COMMITTED “FOR HIS OWN SAFETY”
My new dream headline.
Rush really has got to thank Harry for all this free publicity—I am curious how many new listeners are tuning in to see how ‘evil’ he is, only to learn the Maha Rushie is the truthspeaker, and Dingy is the liar! :-)
I just dropped a note to Mr. Mays of Clear Channel thanking him for his support - MarkPMays@clearchannel.com
I know I’m a bit late to the party, but here’s the e-mail I sent to that disgrace, Harry Reid:
I am writing you to express my outrage that you and most of your fellow Democrats in the U.S. Senate are wasting time and American tax dollars to accuse Mr. Rush Limbaugh of denigrating the U.S. armed forces. You do this by taking something Rush said, out of context, and pretend that he is attacking our troops. This has got to be one of the most disgraceful episodes under your “leadership,” and I use the term very loosely, that I have yet seen. Rush has shown more support of the U.S. military than all the Democrats in the U.S. Senate, combined!
As a citizen of the great state of Iowa, it is particularly embarrassing to have Sen. Tom Harkin disgrace our state, once again, by his shameful display on the floor of the Senate.
The Democrats, I believe, were the first to decry the “politics of personal destruction,” during the Clinton Administration. Yet, time after time, Democrats cannot win in the arena of ideas, so they go for the most ugly of personal attacks imaginable on their political opponents. What a bunch of hypocrites. Especially in light of the spinelessness of the 25 of you that refused to condemn the personal attack on General David Petraeus by MoveOn.org and pledge your full support of General Petraeus and all members of the United States Armed Forces. Who are some of your fellow Senate disgraces? Here’s a partial role call, Senator Reid:
Wait, who was that next to last U.S. Senator without the courage to support our military? Oh, yes, that would be YOU, Senator Reid! I’m absolutely disgusted at the direction you and Speaker Pelosi are taking the Congress. And your dismal approval ratings, much lower than President Bush’s I might add, reflect that disgust. Please do all U.S. citizens a favor and resign!
