UPDATED: He also attacked Paul Hackett: "Limbaugh Calls Iraq Vet "Staff Puke," Claims He Volunteered For War "To Pad [His] Resume"

Rush Limbaugh's anti-troop remarks has set off a ton of responses so far. Send a message to Rush via Wesley Clark: "Is Jon Soltz a phony soldier?"

Rep. Jan Schakowsky:

Does Rush Limbaugh really want to look General Odom in the eye and call him a phony? … And while we’re at it, let’s pay attention to the 72% of american troops serving in iraq who also think the US should exit the country within the next year and more than one in four who say the troops should leave immediately according to the Zogby poll. I guess they’re all a bunch of phonies according to Rush Limbaugh.”

Howard Dean via Press release:

"Rush Limbaugh should immediately apologize to our brave men and women in uniform for undermining the sacrifices they make every day serving our country. Limbaugh's comments were un-American, have no place in the public discourse, and show just how far he'll go to defend President Bush's failed policy in Iraq. America's troops deserve better, and Limbaugh owes them an apology."

DCCC Chairman Chris Van Hollen:

Rush Limbaugh's personal attack on our men and women in uniform is reprehensible. It minimizes the sacrifice our troops in Iraq and their families are making and has no place in the public discourse. Rush Limbaugh owes our military and their families an apology for his hurtful comments that minimize their service to our country

Iraq Vet And Dem Congressman Patrick Murphy Blasts Rush

“Someone should tell chicken-hawk Rush Limbaugh that the only phonies are those who choose not to serve and then criticize those who do.

Steve Soto: ....when can we expect GOP senator John Cornyn of Texas to sponsor the resolution condemning Rush Limbaugh? You see, Omar Mora, one of the seven soldiers who wrote the New York Times op-ed opposing the war last month, and who was killed later, was Cornyn's constituent from Texas City.
