Harry Reid says Rush Limbaugh statements ‘embarrassing for our country’
Las Vegas Sun ^ | Monday, March 5, 2012 | 9:15 p.m. | By David McGrath Schwartz

Posted on 03/06/2012 7:53:44 AM PST by redreno

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said tonight that Rush Limbaugh is losing credibility and called the nation’s most popular talk radio host’s comments about a law school student “embarrassing for our country.”

The Democratic majority leader, in an interview with MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, said “mainstream Republicans don’t accept all this crazy stuff taking place.”

“What we need are the Republicans to get back to where they were,” Reid said on the liberal show. “We don’t have Republican leaders who can lead them down the path to bring about real change in the country.”

Limbaugh last week called Georgetown Law School student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” over three days of his radio show. She had testified in front of Congress regarding access to contraception.

After the comments blew up into a controversy and some sponsors dropped his show, Limbaugh issued an apology on Saturday and addressed the issue on his radio show on Monday

I wonder why the next question isn’t, “Senator, how is this any different than what Bill Maher, who is a million dollar donor to Obama’s campaign said about Sarah Palin?”

What in the world would Reid know about credibility?.
He’s just another socialist scum in D.C. who is nothing but a road block to freedom.

“My staff tells me not to say this, but I’m going to say it anyway,” said Reid in his remarks. “In the summer because of the heat and high humidity, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol. It may be descriptive but it’s true.”—Senator Harry Reid

MSNBC Host: We Ought to Rip Out Cheney’s Heart & Kick It Around (Audio)

Posted on February 26, 2010

ED SCHULTZ (01:59): I just want all of you to know that I get my entertainment through NewsBusters. (laughs, then in mincing voice)

How dare [we] Democrats make fun of Dick Cheney’s heart problems and turn it into a political football. (back to normal voice, to the extent possible) I can just hear some little weasel who’s writing that at NewsBusters. You’re my entertainment.

Bozell, Bozell and his bozo crew. You’re damn right, Dick Cheney’s heart’s a political football. We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him. I’m glad he didn’t tip over. He is the new poster child for health care in this country.

From NewsBusters.org, June 9, 2009...

Seven months after Election Day, and the attacks on Sarah Palin keep coming.

On Monday, CBS's David Letterman on the "Late Show" shamelessly went after the Alaska governor and her family during his opening monologue, as well as in his "Top Ten" list.

Top Ten Highlights Of Sarah Palin's Trip To New York

10. Visited New York landmarks she normally only sees from Alaska

9. Laughed at all the crazy-looking foreigners entering the U.N.

8. Made moose jerky on Rachael Ray

7. Keyed Tina Fey's car

6. After a wink and a nod, ended up with a kilo of crack

5. Made coat out of New York City rat pelts

4. Sat in for Kelly Ripa. Regis couldn't tell the difference.

3. Finally met one of those Jewish people Mel Gibson's always talking about

2. Bought makeup from Bloomingdale's to update her "slutty flight attendant" look

1. Especially enjoyed not appearing on Letterman

Sandra Bernhard issues 'gang rape' warning to Sarah Palin

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

BY TRACY MILLER
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER
September 19th 2008

Sandra Bernhard issued a blistering warning to Sarah Palin during a performance of her new one-woman show.

The Republican V.P. nom would be "gang-raped by my big black brothers" if she enters Manhattan, Bernhard said. Palin is said to be making a campaign stop in New York next week.

"[The gang rape comment] is part of a much larger, nuanced, and yes, provocative (that's what I do) piece from my show about racism, freedom, women's rights and the extreme views of Governor Sarah Palin, a woman who doesn't believe that other women should have the right to choose," Bernhard told the Daily News today.

No, the joke is the young woman who testified that she wants others to pay so she can have recreational sex for free and there are actually politicians that support her.

“He is a light-skinned man who doesn’t have to speak in a Negro dialect if he doesn’t want to” Harry “Adolph” Reid talking about Barack Obama.

Hey Harry, thank heaven he is light skinned or else you would have never voted for him. You racist!

The hypocrisy is staggering.

the answer is that ONLY Andrew Breitbart made an issue of this loud enough for people to hear. Mona Charon, George Will, Fox sunday none of those people called for a boycott of advertisers of any of the nasty TV or radio comments made about Ann Coulter, Sarah, as well as dozens of good conservative women. We don’t have a very good megaphone or follow through system.

Where is a GOP Senator with the guts to roll a TV ans Video Player to the well of the Senate and play clips of all the Liberal misogyny toward Republican Women and the personal attacks on Rush.

Some examples, Wanda Sykes in front of Obama wishing Rush Kidney failure or all the vitriol that came out when they thought Rush had a Heart Attack while he was in Hawaii.

So the Flukster is having so much sex that she can’t afford it. That means that taxpayers, especially devout Catholics, should pay for her birth control.

If you have any problem with that or criticize her behavior in any way, than you are “embarrassing to our country.”

Oppression by the stupid.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid...

Is an embarrassment to our species....

If some one can verify that he is in fact a carbon based unit (CBU), instead of a feces based unit (Like most in WDC)

And most CBU's hate feces to pieces.

Just sayin
