On Monday, Congressman Mark Udall will be introducing a resolution to condemn Rush:

Honoring all Americans serving in the Armed Forces of the United States and condemning the attack by broadcaster Rush Limbaugh on the integrity and professionalism of some of those Americans.

On Monday I will introduce a resolution honoring all Americans serving in the Armed Forces and condemning this unwarranted attack on the integrity and professionalism of those in the Armed Forces who choose to exercise their constitutional right to express their opinions regarding U.S. military action in Iraq. Sincerely, Mark Udall

"ThinkProgress has obtained a letter being circulated on Capitol Hill today by the Senate Democratic Leadership that calls on Clear Channel CEO Mark Mays to repudiate its employee Rush Limbaugh’s “phony troops” remark.

The letter, signed by Sens. Harry Reid (D-NV, Dick Durbin (D-IL), Charles Schumer (D-NY), and Patty Murray (D-WA), states that Limbaugh’s comments were “outrageous” and “unconscionable”

Digby has a great post outlining more buffoonery from the man who is on the Armed Forces Radio in Iraq. How do you think they feel about Rush's rants?

Jesus General asks: "Can't you least wait until National Pilonidal Cyst Awareness Month is over?" AmericaBlog asks why isn't the press covering Limbaugh's attack on the troops?

The WH's Dana Perino distances Bush over his remarks.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) told Time.com’s Ana Marie Cox that “it reflects very poorly on him” and “he would be well advised to retract it and apologize.” And Romney weighs in. Of course, he may flip flop on this statement at any time.
