Fact Check: Rush Is Wrong about the Environment, Chapter 142

Good ole Rush is at it again. When you don't have the facts, make stuff up. 

Yes, Sooner fans, Limbaugh has weighed in again on environmental issues and he's once again departed from the truth.

In an effort to minimize the Gulf of Mexico oil spill now in progress, El Rushbo has stated that Prince William Sound in Alaksa, site of a previous oil spill, is now pristine. 

It's not. Far from it. The facts, as opposed to Limbaugh's fiction, is here, courtesy of those intrepid fact-checkers at PolitiFact.

Apropos of nothing, I love TPM's witty titles. Example:

What Could Go Wrong?

Louisiana House to pass legislation to allow concealed weapons in churches and other places of worship.

Sad for self-styled Constitutional scholars, Gov. Henry vetoed the open-carry law.

Wouldn't it have been great if the denizens of Wal-Mart could have swaggered around with a hogleg on their hips?

I and many others would be switching our patronage to stores with metal detectors. The moneymen at Wal-Mart might have looked at the expense of installing them and then lobbied to undo the law.

Do you suppose that projection might have anything to do with the inability of the legislature to overturn the veto?
