Fake hero but real smear artist

Democrat Tom Harkin, speaking on the floor of the U. S. Senate, attempted to smear talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.

But Harkin’s attempt backfired when bloggers reminded him of some things Harkin and the Democrats who control most of MSM news reporting want us all to forget.

Take a look at Michelle Malkin’s post, Fake war hero Tom Harkin smears Rush Limbaugh , and be sure to follow the link to this Instapundit post from August, 2004.

Instapundit posted just a few weeks before Dan Rather and CBS ran their phony Texas Air National Guard story on Sept. 8, 2004 in which they used forged documents from an anonymous source they told us was “unimpeachable.”

But about 10 days after their "unimpeachable" claim, and under relentless pressure from bloggers, Rather and CBS were forced to admit their “unimpeachable source” was in fact long-time Bush-hater and Democratic Party activist Bill Burkett which they knew all along.

Technology has sure made it tough for people like Tom Harkin, Dan Rather, Bill Burkett, and so many in MSM.

And if you look at this link from August 2004 you’ll see why liberals and leftists get so mad at Fox News.

They are forever after Limbaugh and he just keeps getting richer. Not many people could take the constant lies told about him but he just keeps on fighting and winning.

John -

From what I read about what Rush said, it appears his comments were taken completely out of context. Moreover, the "soldier" he was talking about was indeed a phony soldier.

Harkin should be ashamed.

Back in the 70s, I was a resident at the VA Hospital in Des Moines IA. Tom Harkin had just been elected to the US House of Representatives. There was an announcement in the Des Moines Register that Tom Harkin would spend a day working as a nursing aide in the VA Hospital. All that happened is that he put on a white suit and spent a day looking dazed touring the hospital in the company of some officials of the local democratic party organization.
