Limbaugh fires back at 'fool' Jackson Lee for NFL floor speech By Bob Cusack - 10/14/09 01:57 PM ET
Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday fired back at a House Democrat who has called on the National Football League (NFL) not to let him buy the St. Louis Rams.
On his radio show, Limbaugh said Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) was "spreading lies" when she delivered a speech on the House floor on Tuesday.
Jackson Lee said Limbaugh is "divisive" and should not be allowed to impugn the integrity of the NFL. She also highlighted Limbaugh's controversial comments about Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb in 2003.
Limbaugh, who has expressed interest in buying the Rams, said, "I wonder if Ms. Jackson Lee to have any regard for the truth. Does she have any regard for hoping, desiring to sound intelligent and knowledgeable, or is she content to be happy and proud to go the floor of the House of Representatives and make a fool of herself?
"What makes [Jackson Lee] a sports expert?" Limbaugh asked.
Limbaugh asserted that the media and Democrats are spreading "lies and fabrications and misstatements" about him, suggesting that his comments on McNabb have been distorted.
He added, "She can say what she wants. These are the people who have power over us ... I don't have any power over Sheila Jackson Lee and I don't seek any power over Sheila Jackson Lee. She, on the other hand, is the opposite. She wants power over not just me, but of as many people she can get."
The Missouri native said Democrats are going after him: "The United States government has people who are now totally comfortable in targeting an individual," he said, citing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and now Jackson Lee.
Yeah, maybe she ought to debate Rush about it on the air.........................
I heard this segment of Rush’s program, and what he said is MUCH better than what this article quotes or paraphrases.
Sounds more serious than that.
She really pisses me off the way she “channels” Barbara Jordan. She tries to sound just like her. I sat on a plane next to Barbara Jordan not long before her death and chatted with her for some time. Jackson-Lee is no Barbara Jordan. Jordan would be sickened bt the state of the country right now.
Rush will make them pay for their insolence.
What the hell would Sheila Jackson Lee know about integrity?
Sheila Jackson-Lee was the politician who was answering her cell phone while conducting a townhall meeting. This vulgar move was designed to get a bad response. It didn’t work but it did show the callousness our elected officials have for us.
I wish rush would get a good attorney and sue every one. I mean every one of these asshats!
A few Hollywood stars have sued the tabloids for defamation...I don't see this as being any different.
You know, I think I’m old enough to run against her....She has got to go NOW.
So what is RUSH doing about it? Talk Talk Talk. Same as Urkel is doing with Iran & will get the same results. Thanks, Savage for putting your money with your talk.
Integrity??!!! Of the NFL???!!!!! ROFLMAO!!!!!!
Yeah, nothing says integrity like meddling owners (Jones, Snyder), idiot owners (Davis), tried and convicted felons being allowed to play (Pacman, Vick, others), etc. Integrity?!
No, actually, Mr. Cusack, Rush said that "Snerdly" was screaming that question in his ear, and he repeated the question.
See, that's another problem the media has - they can accurately report every word of a false accusation; but, they can't seem to report accurately on things that are actually said. *sigh*
I just had a vision of Rush and his St. Louis Rams winning the Super Bowl. The thought of watching Roger no-Goodell handing the Lombardi trophy to Rush reminds me of when Al Davis was winning Super Bowls with his L.A. Raiders while in court against Pete Rozelle and the rest of the No Fun League.
He's just not tipping his hand completely...
That was fast.
