Iraq war vets who serve honorably but disagree with the war policy are "phony soldiers."
So says the Great Sage of Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh. Speaking this week on his radio show, Limbaugh expressed contempt for those soldiers who want to end the war and bring the troops home.
It's not like Rush knows anything about combat or military service. During the Vietnam War, Limbaugh managed to escape the draft with a minor medical problem. He has never served a day in uniform.
We know Rush Limbaugh is a blowhard. We also know a real phony when we hear one.
UPDATE: In an attempt to defend himself, Limbaugh has edited his original comments, scrubbing his "phony soldiers" comment. Unfortunately for Rush, Media Matters has the original audio. Click here for more on Limbaugh's duplicity.
