The Right Wing

Rush Just "Loves" The AlterNet

Limbaugh gave "The AlterNet" and its "agitated left-wingers" a nice shout out on his show last night.

Rush Limbaugh revealed some serious history on his show yesterday. He also demonstrated he has a good memory. Rush has been paying attention to the fact that AlterNet has been a thorn in his side for a long time: 

There's a website out there called the AlterNet, and I'm familiar with this. When I started this program before the Internet really became mainstream, a bunch of agitated left-wingers hung out at the AlterNet.

That's where a lot of the original, slanderous, libelous criticism of me began, and it was among ostensible professors, so-called educators and so forth. AlterNet now is an online leftist magazine. They ran a story by somebody names Chauncey DeVega arguing that Dorner could be transformed through popular culture and storytelling into a figure talked about for decades, for centuries to come, with multiple versions of his stories and exploits.

Thanks Rush for the props. We been on your ass for 10 good years, and we're not stopping now.
