Aside from many other lies, one that really, really bothered me was when Rush called soldiers "phony soldiers" when several soldiers and vets said that the wars abroad should be ended rapidly. And so Rush would beat up on representatives (including in the Republican party) who wanted to bring our troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan.

This from the fellow who said he couldn't go to Vietnam because of a "football injury," although he really got out because of a boil on his rear, a pilonidal cyst (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pilonidal_cyst about this problem).

What are some of the most egregious lies you have heard Rush tell? I will share more in the days ahead.

Yours,

Caleb

Bernie Sanders Could be the Next FDR

Tuesday night, I appeared on the Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to talk about Elizabeth Warren, the rise of progressives within the Democratic Party, and what this means for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.

At one point in our discussion, the conversation turned to whether Bernie represents the closest thing to an Elizabeth Warren candidacy.
