Huckabee backs Limbaugh

Posted By on Mon, Oct 19, 2009 at 4:47 PM

Mike Huckabee thinks Rush Limbaugh ought to sue someone over his failure to buy part of an NFL franchise. Really.

Grounds? Defendants? You tell me. It's hard to tell from Huckabee's weird piece, which is mostly a rehash of his "death of journalism" theme. See, it's the lyin' reporters that did Limbaugh in, not his own words. Just as it's the lyin' reporters, not his own deeds and ill-chosen words, that sometimes got Mike Huckabee in trouble.

To this day, I fight perceptions based on distortions and outright lies that were put in print and on the airwaves in the course of my political career at the state and national level.

Ironically, one of the most ridiculous labels thrown on me was that of a "big government liberal," and even Rush Limbaugh said it during the presidential campaign. It certainly wasn't good for my political career and now Rush is experiencing a bunch of lies being thrown on him and finding that it can matter.

Read it for yourself.

(Ain't it just like The Huckster, a tort reform champion, to start talking lawsuit the minute something turns out in a way he doesn't like.)

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
