Rush Limbaugh and the "phony soldiers"
Too bad they die real deaths.

Rush Limbaugh says there are two kinds of soldiers serving in the U.S. military in Iraq -- real soldiers who think the United States ought to keep fighting there and "phony soldiers" who think the United States ought to start making plans to leave.
Media Matters has the obvious rejoinder: The seven men who wrote "The War as We Saw It" must have been "phony soldiers," right?
Memo to Rush: Try telling that to the "phony mothers," "phony fathers," "phony wives" and "phony kids" of those men, two of whom were killed in Iraq this month.
Memo to John Cornyn and 71 other U.S. senators: Where's the
resolution condemning Rush?
