Now, They Support the Troops

This statement from Harry Reid is too funny:

"Rush Limbaugh took it upon himself to attack the courage and character of those fighting and dying for him and for all of us. Rush Limbaugh got himself a deferment from serving when he was a young man. He never served in uniform. He never saw in person the extreme difficulty of maintaining peace in a foreign country engaged in a civil war. He never saw a person in combat. Yet, that he thinks his opinion on the war is worth more than those who have been on the front lines," Reid said.

"Rush Limbaugh owes the men and women of our armed forces an apology," he said.

Is this the same guy who belittled the troops efforts in Iraq by prematurely declaring the "war is lost", and whose Party is currently undermining the war effort by cutting off financial support to our troops in the warzone, and whose supporters recently kicked around US Marines in a San Francisco airport, prepping the return of the Vietnam era practice of spitting on the troops? These MoveOn Democrats have a lot of nerve to base their new-found patriotism on something that NEVER HAPPENED.

Update-And if Reid is right in his summation of Limbaugh's patriotism, why is the Mainstream Media not covering the Senator's statements?
