Limbaugh Says McCain's Camp Manipulated Bob Dole: John Kerry Had A Great Military Record

The Conservative world is cracking up. I told you yesterday that it was a bad idea for McCain to seek out Bob Dole to try and calm down Rush and the right wing talkie attacks on him. Anyone could have predicted that wasn't a very good idea. Well...here it comes...

Limbaugh: I'm sorry---Sen. McCain--I think what you are doing is disgraceful. How in the world is what Gov. Romney said a nasty attack on a veteran? What your campaign is doing Sen. McCain is manipulating Bob Dole, a war hero by the way, a war hero Sen. McCain who never talked about it. Bob Dole is being manipulated by your campaign, the leaking of this letter to the liberal media with a dishonest spin, speaks to the insecurity of the McCain camp.

While Rush is obviously trying to be respectful to Dole, he does say that he was manipulated by McCain--so he's very slyly attacking Dole. In the audio you hear a clip of McCain attacking Romney for criticizing Dole---who said that Dole is the last person someone would want to contact Rush because he was a loser in his presidential bid. Rush then bashes the media, but the tone of the letter isn't the important thing which Limbaugh tries to make a big deal out of--it's Dole asking Rush to back off. Talk about throwing gas on a fire for McCain. It's a battle you'll never win.

I almost missed this tidbit, but Limbaugh says: "Ask John Kerry how much a great military record helps you in a Presidential race...."

What a pig. Google Limbaugh and the Swiftboaters or anything close and see how many times he attacked Kerry's service record in '04 and put it in the comment section.
