Rush Limbaugh says "Her story is nothing more than forged documents. There's nothing about it that's real..."

Media Matters for America

Limbaugh baselessly compared Cindy Sheehan to Bill Burkett: "Her story is nothing more than forged documents"

Nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh equated the actions of Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a soldier killed in Iraq, with those of Bill Burkett, the retired Texas Air National Guard officer who provided CBS' 60 Minutes with unauthenticated documents regarding President Bush's National Guard record. Sheehan is currently staging an anti-war protest outside Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas. Limbaugh said that Sheehan's "story is nothing more than forged documents."

Sheehan's "story" is, in fact, that her son died while fighting in Iraq. A Humvee mechanic, Spc. Casey Sheehan was one of seven U.S. soldiers killed in Baghdad's Sadr City on April 4, 2004, by rocket-propelled grenades and small arms fire.

From the August 15 broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show:

LIMBAUGH: I mean, Cindy Sheehan is just Bill Burkett. Her story is nothing more than forged documents. There's nothing about it that's real, including the mainstream media's glomming onto it. It's not real. It's nothing more than an attempt. It's the latest effort made by the coordinated left.

I just can't listen to such hatred coming from a drug addict. Just as I can't listen to convicted traitor Ollie North espouse heroism. I guess I'll never know what he said. I guess I'll never care.


Yeah, it is really hard listening to the bile of a dysfunctional
patriarchal male that is finally getting some attention.

But alas, Ray Davies of the Kinks was right when he said, "Give the People What They Want!!!" (For, Davies I think it was hard to take that the "People" didn't want "Presveration Act 1 & 2", they wanted
"You Really Got Me" over and over and over and over. . .)

For the American people, why does a country with so much going for it
find such an ear for "mean radio" of Rush/O'Reilly/etc. and not the clever and amusing words of the "Holy Fools" like Ray Davies and Tommy Chong?

It always pisses me off every time I think about the fact that
Rush Limbaugh got away with his "drugs", while Tommy Chong was
the scapegoat for someone else's stash AND had to go to PRISON!!!

Meanwhile, Ollie North and John Poindexter got rewarded for their crimes!!!

And saddest of all . .. Nichole Bush was completely disowned
by the Bush "Family" for her drug problems. Of course, this is
in line with "Traditional Family Values" . . . you make the dominant
look bad or challenge their "authority" and you are outta there!!
Not that long ago, they would have stoned her to death or burned her.
Now, these broken children just disappear from the view of the
system that broke them in the first place.

"You better run, you better hide
Hide your daughters, hide your wives
Here comes Flash!!!"
- Ray Davies and the Kinks



I can't. stomach. rush. But more importantly, I cannot stomach those who listen to him and believe him.

Forged documents? How about a LIFE of LIES and dysfunction? Rush--check the mirror. How badly would you be whining if Cindy's losses affected YOUR life?

Rush Limbaugh is a narcissistic bag of slime.

And the bag is full. Very very full.

I think his show is the perfect example of how connected to reality many right-wingers are.

Methinks they're starting to become unglued...

Well just an FYI - We can't stand you libs either.

I love how you call Rush and the President a liar when in 1998 Clinton presented the SAME information that Bush did to congress and got permission to take action but he was too big a pu$$y to do anything about Hussein. Now I love the fact that Able Danger is out now to show how Clinton's failed policies were the real reason behind 9-11.

HAHA!!! I laugh at the left. Your hate tactics don't work, your calling Bush a moron is all you have, and all you libs do is jump on with the ONLY parent of a fallen soldier because you have no one else on your side.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! You all make me laugh. You just hate the fact that Rush tells the truth and makes the left look foolish 3 hours a day, 5 days a week.

While you are laughing, please take a moment and sign up to fight the illegal war in Iraq. They really need more soldiers, since so many of our kids are getting killed and maimed for nothing.

Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and all the others are nothing but liars!!!!! They twist everything to how they want it!

And so do all the news reporters that you listen to. Everything you here on the news is in someones perspective. And wake up and realize that most of the media is liberal, the spin is coming from your side. So if you want no spin why don't you watch FOX and CNN, so you can get both sides. I'm sixteen and I figured that one out already. Can't you?

Fox is one of the biggest perpatrators of the lies. It was on Fox that the now discredited "Drudge Report" was repeated ad nauseum. If the media were so liberal, then why didn't they jump on the chance to air the Downing Street Memo discussion lead by John Conyers? Only one news network aired it live, and that was C-Span. All of the other news outlets only gave it a passing reference after the discussion.

Maybe because the Downing Street Memo's are too big a lie to put on TV or else you know they would have!!!! You liberals are morons...

Mr Limbaugh needs to worry more about the 'rabid right' who seem to have infected him and his ability to conduct fair and accurate reporting. This war was viewed by many as illegal, it was not authorised by the United Nations, no concensus was reached, it was protested around the world, before it even began, the occupation was recognised as poorly planned, and as a result poorly executed and the occupying powers failed to protect the innocent civilians for whom they were responsible. The oil for food program was brought to a halt and the population have suffered increased hardship - malnutrition rates up, escalating violence resulting in the injuries and deaths of many innocents, medical services are failing under the pressure.

Mr Limbaugh acts as spokesperson for the fantasists among us, who believe no matter what the facts, a loud mouth and a total disregard for the truth can 'win through'. His world is black and white and everyone can see the choice he has made. To help him recover a sense of reality and the importance of the truth I suggest he make a trip to Iraq and report to us from outside the 'green zone', 'unembedded and free to roam the streets'. He can perhaps then find the commonsense to see that propaganda is not news and never will be. He might equally take the opportunity to feel some remorse for his stance and remember the journalists who have lost their lives while trying to do the one thing he was unable to - report the news and thus offer a critical insight into the actions of this present Administration.

We must thank Mr Limbaugh for such a clear display of 'what money can buy' - grandmothers everywhere better watch their backs, in his world we are all for 'sale'.

Sorry for the double post. Thanks for the info Marianne!

Are you confusing Rush with Michael Moore?????

No, Rush is the one who was an hypocrite and forcing his maid to get him illegal drugs that he was addicted to....We do not expect intelligence nor reason to come out of that damaged brain. Mike is a person who has tried to do something honorable for our country. He only seems to upset people who prefer other drug damaged leaders who accept their money for influence so they can continue bankrupting more average citizens.

No I'm refering to the FAT ASS who dodged his military duty because of a BOIL ON HIS FAT ASS

What can I say about Rush that hasn't already been said. It's almost tragic to see such a waste of a human being. It's one thing to make money as a carnie barker but gain the kind of audience he has and to get people to go along with the corrosive thoughts is gross beyond words. There are no words to describe the pity I have for people who find him appealing.

Don't forget Lee Atwater

It is always the same pattern of dirty tactics with these people. Isn't it becoming transparent and predictable to EVERYONE yet?

This kind of behavior in the Republican Party really took hold with Lee Attwater. People should know his story:

Harvey Leroy "Lee" Atwater (February 26, 1951 – March 29, 1991) was a United States Republican political consultant and strategist. Atwater is notorious as the very definition of smashmouth politics, in which every effort is made to destroy the reputations, careers and lives of political opponents. Though Atwater died in 1991, his methods live on in contemporary practitioners Karl Rove and George W. Bush.

In a February 1991 article for Life Magazine, Atwater wrote:

"My illness helped me to see that what was missing in society is what was missing in me: a little heart, a lot of brotherhood. The '80s were about acquiring -- acquiring wealth, power, prestige. I know. I acquired more wealth, power, and prestige than most. But you can acquire all you want and still feel empty. What power wouldn't I trade for a little more time with my family? What price wouldn't I pay for an evening with friends? It took a deadly illness to put me eye to eye with that truth, but it is a truth that the country, caught up in its ruthless ambitions and moral decay, can learn on my dime. I don't know who will lead us through the '90s, but they must be made to speak to this spiritual vacuum at the heart of American society, this tumor of the soul."

I always wonder if the droids in the White House have a soul.

Wonder how many of our tax dollars go toward paying this gas bag to spout the government propaganda?

Wonder how many of our tax dollars go toward paying this gas bag to spout the government propaganda?

The Govt. broadcasts Rush to the troops in Iraq,they get only pro Bush news,they only get the truth if we send it to them.

Good Morning Vietnam!!!

Nah, all the cool kidz in the miiitary know how to get the truth
from the Internet!!!

Plus, aren't they kinda in the cat-bird seat of being able to use
their own judgment to determine what they are being told and what
they see on a daily basis = BULLSHIT!!!

My question is, when are they going to start "fraggin" their
NEO CON officers and CIA/Corporate "Contractors" like we did
in Vietnam?

Come out of your fog, Rush.

You desperately need to wake up and beg your God's forgiveness for your support of what is quite obviously (at least to those without the right wing kool-aid and EIB blinders) the most corrupt administration in the history of American government.

In your complete lack of shame and common sense, you turn even a soldier's senseless death in the sands of Iraq (fighting Bush's baseless war of choice) and his mother's quest for answers into a political argument. What's worse is that you support your charge with nothing!

LIMBAUGH: I mean, Cindy Sheehan is just Bill Burkett. Her story is nothing more than forged documents. There's nothing about it that's real, including the mainstream media's glomming onto it. It's not real. It's nothing more than an attempt. It's the latest effort made by the coordinated left.

What documents are forged? Where are they? Are you really suggesting that Cindy Sheehan had no son that died in Iraq, and that she is just some kind of political puppet?

Sorry, the Bush administration already has that puppet thing covered pretty well.

Show your evidence or keep your ignorant mouth shut.

John Perry

If ever there was a living definition of the word 'traitor' it is Rush Limbaugh.

I wonder if he knows how absurd he looks on his web site clutching his big cigar. What an absolute tool.
