Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Hypocrite) is planning on introducing a resolution commending Rush Limbaugh if the resolution condemning him comes to the floor. He was on MSNBC to discuss his resolution and his views on the entire issue:
Kingston seems very concerned now with first amendment issues. Ironically he didn't share this concern when the resolution condemning MoveOn was brought to the floor. He also is worried about the Congress "wasting time" on condemning Rush. Again - he wasn't concerned about Congress wasting time when they condemned MoveOn. It's amazing how concerns change once the tables are turned.
House Republicans are threatening to launch a discharge petition on legislation that would ensure the future prosperity of conservative radio talk-show hosts but is expected to face opposition from Democratic leaders. On Monday evening, Republicans filed a rule with the House Rules Committee laying the groundwork for a petition that would force action on protecting radio from government regulation later this fall.
