Sometimes, it's hard to keep up.

Here's Republican Rep. Jack Kingston telling MSNBC why Democrats are wrong to criticize Rush Limbaugh for his "phony soldiers" remark:

"Frankly, I think there's a First Amendment issue that goes well beyond Rush Limbaugh, and that's the right of private citizens to have discourse without the U.S. Congress or members of the Senate leadership denouncing them."

Kingston voted last week in favor of a resolution condemning MoveOn for its Petraeus/"Betray Us" ad.
