countdown-vet-rush.jpg Tonight on Countdown Staff Sgt. Brian McGough, who appeared in the latest Vote Vets Ad, talked with Keith Olbermann about Rush Limbaugh's latest attack on him and our troops by comparing him to a suicide bomber. McGough makes no bones about his feelings toward the cowardly Limbaugh and his disgusting statement, telling Keith: "it makes me mad down to a place where I can't even think to describe."

As Christy puts it, el Rushbo kicked the wrong hornets nest by going after Vote Vets. We're going to hammer on him continuously as long as he continues this rabid assault on our troops and veterans. General Wesley Clark has a petition to have Limbaugh dumped from Armed Forces Radio, you can sign it here. McGough is the real deal, you'll want to watch this clip.

Olbermann: "...On a personal level, is there anything you'd like to say or add to this whole mess?"

McGough: "I'd really like to say, and to reiterate I said before, ask me, or any of the members of VoteVets.org to come on your program and talk to you and to tell you how we feel. Don't just talk bad about us and then we say hey, that's not right, try to talk bad about us again -- and think before you open your mouth."
