Instead Of Accepting Harry Reid's "Olive Branch" Over Charitable Windfall, Rush Limbaugh Launches the "Harry Reid Hate-Fest"!

The "tit-for-tat" going on in congress between the Republicans admonishing MoveOn's "General BetrayUs" ad and Rush Limbaugh calling anti-war soldiers "phony soldiers" produced an unexpected outcome: an original copy of the Senate Democrats' complaint letter sold on eBay today for $2,100,100.00, to be donated the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation charity.

Here's what Harry Reid said about it:

"When I spoke to Mark May, he and I thought this probably wouldn't make much money, a letter, written by Democrat Senators, complaining about something. This morning, the bid is more than two million for this. We've watched it during the week. It keeps going up, and up, and up. There's only a little bit of time left on it, but it certainly is going to be more than two million. Never did we think that this letter would bring money of this nature," said Senator Reid. "And for the cause, Madam President, it's extremely good. Now everybody knows that Rush Limbaugh and I don't agree on everything in life. Maybe that's kind of an understatement. But, without qualification, Mark May, the owner of the network that has Rush Limbaugh, their auction is going to be something that raises money for a worthwhile cause. I don't know what we could do more important than helping to ensure that children of our fallen soldiers and police officers who have fallen in the line of duty have the opportunity for their children to have a good education......I strongly believe that when we can put our differences aside, even Harry Reid and Rush Limbaugh, we should do that and try to accomplish good things for the American people."

So, everything's alright! Right? A fight turned into a charitable windfall is a good thing, right? Set a good example for everyone, instead of all this fighting, right? Rush could be like Harry...just for this once, right?


Well, we're talking about the brownshirtosphere, here! And we're talking about the Pied-Piper of the brownshirts: Rush Limbaugh! Harry Reid's response was the the worst, most unexpected response for Rush Limbaugh! Rush wanted more fighting! Even about this!Offering an "olive branch and "burying the hatchet" (bd: I'd like to in Limbaugh's skull) on just this one occasion, is unacceptable to the "take no prisoners" brownshirtosphere!

Instead of accepting Harry's peace offering, Rush begins the "Harry Reid hate-fest"!

Rush Limbaugh went into a hysterical Oxycontin hate-frenzy, playing Harry Reid's conciliatory response during his show, yelling "Stop the tape! Stop the tape!" to interject hate-filled comments such as: Harry Reid was hijacking the credit for the charitable windfall, pointing out that Reid wasn't matching the bid (bd: Limbaugh probably used Bush's tax cuts for the wealthy for his "match"), Harry Reid is smearing him (bd: the smearmeister is saying that!), telling Harry he should apologize to him (bd: hah! how do you like that one?), it's Orwellian (bd: Rush is Orwellian...Rush dost protest too much!), and bringing up their fight instead of focusing on this positive event!

RUSH: This attempt by Harry Reid to take to the floor of the Senate at 12 noon Eastern Time today to personalize this and make it about himself, you just know the mainstream media, the Drive-Bys, will get on this story now and Reid will end up being very positively portrayed. He has quotes about how "we" never thought that the letter would generate this kind of money. "We" never thought...? "Mark May and I..." It's Mays! "Mark May and I talked about this, and Mark May and I..." Senator Reid, let me be clear about this one more time -- actually, as many times as it takes. It wasn't your letter that raised this money. It was your abuse of power that is responsible for raising this money. No other letter you have written would be... People wouldn't pay a dime for it, Senator! This one represents an abuse of power: a federal government official, a US senator, getting hold -- after besmirching me and smearing me by name personally from the Senate floor, gets hold -- of the CEO of my syndication partner and asks him to "confer" with me about something Senator Reid thought was said that was improper? Words? First Amendment? Free speech? That, sir, is an abuse of power. That is why your letter is historic, not because you signed it, not because 40 other people signed it, not because you wrote it. It is because of what that letter represents: a full-fledged, undeniable, 100% abuse of power, and that's how this letter will be remembered by historians forever."

Here is the whole transcript of Limbaugh flying off the handle:

(WARNING: You will have to wash yourself 5,000 times with some kind of anti-bacterial foaming soap if you go there! And also check out your work's psychiatric benefits...mine has $20/co-pay + 80% coverage thereafter...after deductible...):

Compare Harry Reid's and Limbaugh's response to the exact same event! The printed word doesn't do justice to Rush Limbaugh's hysterical hate-frenzy on video. The video may be on his website somewhere (see WARNING again).

Here's the real reason for Limbaugh's Oxycontin response: The "ploy" for Limbaugh was to label the eBay auction "Harry Reid Smear Letter" and link it to a soldiers' charity ("using" the soldiers again! if he was really being "charitable", he wouldn't have named it that! Duh!)...THEN, he could wave this in front of the enemies' faces and smear anyone pointing this out as being "against charity for the troops." It's their "association game." Does this sound familiar: "If you don't agree with us, you're against the troops"..."You're with us, or with the terrorists"..."Hitler is for the SCHIP program."

But Rush couldn't do that because of Harry Reid's "perfect" response!

Is Harry Reid a genius tactician? Or is he just a nice guy, and I'm giving him too much credit?

Either way, his response drove Limbaugh NUTS! Bravo Harry!!!
