Cheney And Limbaugh Have Good Time With Democrat Bashing

   From  BarbinMD over at the Daily Kos, we get a look at the Rush Limbaugh, Dick Cheney comedy hour. Cheney was the guest on the Limbaugh communist radio show and they spoke of nothing other than the Democrats.

Cheney and Limbaugh

When the Vice President of the United States sits down with radio host Rush Limbaugh, one would imagine that there would be a lot of common ground and interests that they could talk about, from avoiding Vietnam, to their brushes with the law, or even their mutual disdain for truth. But during today's one-on-one, they went with their common hatred for Democrats.  And while that hatred is evident throughout the interview, it is perhaps best encapsulated during two exchanges. First, while talking about the House and Senate supplemental spending bills:

LIMBAUGH:  Can you share with us whether or not you understand their devotion, or their seeming allegiance to the concept of U.S. defeat?


After more than four years, hundreds of thousands of deaths and an Iraqi civil war, perhaps it would have been more helpful had they discussed their own devotion, their seeming allegiance, to the concept of fighting a war that has no military solution, but instead they moved on to the recess appointment of Sam Fox:

LIMBAUGH:  This is the kind of move that garners a lot of support from the people in the country. This shows the administration willing to engage these people and not allow them to get away with this kind of -- well, my term -- you don't have to accept it -- Stalinist behavior from these people on that committee.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, you're dead on.

Equating legitimate concerns about an ambassadorship with a policy that led to the deaths of untold millions?  Reprehensible.  At least that's how the White House described Dick Durbin's remarks in 2005, that likened the treatment of detainees at Guantanamo Bay with Soviet gulags.  Back then Republicans and the White House demanded (and received) an apology for such a comparison.  But let's not hold our collective breath waiting for GOP outrage over Limbaugh's remarks or Cheney's agreement. As a matter of fact, Dick and Rush had a good laugh over the whole situation:

LIMBAUGH: You go on vacation, this is what happens to you.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: If you're a Democrat. (Laughter.)

It's almost as funny as what happens when a Republican goes on vacation:

Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in U.S.
