Remember when Republican Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff crossed party lines to endorse Barack Obama for President rather than his friend John McCain? Remember him saying the following?
I’m also troubled by, not what Senator McCain says, but what members of the party say. And it is permitted to be said such things as, "Well, you know that Mr. Obama is a Muslim." Well, the correct answer is, he is not a Muslim, he’s a Christian. He’s always been a Christian. But the really right answer is, what if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer’s no, that’s not America. Is there something wrong with some seven-year-old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she could be president? Yet, I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion, "He’s a Muslim and he might be associated terrorists." This is not the way we should be doing it in America.
It is Rush Limbaugh who is most responsible for not only this crap that Obama is a Muslim, but who is behind the demonizing of the second largest religion in the world. Family values spokesman and foe of gay marriage Rush Limbaugh who has no children and is on his fourth wife. A hypocritical morphine addict who is still the most listened to man on radio getting 20 million listeners a week.
It is not Rush Limbaugh who is the problem, it is the 20 million ignorant bigoted Republican aholes who listen to his nastyass Right-wing swill each week now for 22 years. All about Rush Limbaugh
