I heard Rush say this today, courtesy of Air America (thanks to media matters for the transcript).

CALLER: It was like a college fraternity prank that stacked up naked men --

LIMBAUGH: Exactly. Exactly my point! This is no different than what happens at the Skull and Bones initiation and we're going to ruin people's lives over it and we're going to hamper our military effort, and then we are going to really hammer them because they had a good time. You know, these people are being fired at every day. I'm talking about people having a good time, these people, you ever heard of emotional release? You of heard of need to blow some steam off?

Indefensible. And ill-considered; after all, Bush has of this writing chastised Rumsfeld for not informing him (this is theatre of course, but whatever. What's truly amazing is that as of this writing Bush is saying he hasn't read the damn report because it hasn't come up the chain of command yet. What the FUCK kind of excuse is that?

Congress is calling Rummy up on Friday to yell at him. Whatever. And more pictures have come out. And it's still unfolding...

As you can see, Media Matters has links to Hannity and Colmes making the same "it's a frat hazing" "argument" as well as some ass from Dennis Miller's show.

My challenge to these guys: give me a gun and a stick, then allow me to force you to suck each other's dicks. Be prepared to be fucked in the ass with a broom handle. Perhaps beaten to death, wrapped in saran wrap, then snuck out on a gurney with a fake iv as camoflage. Then tell me how this is just "frat hazing."

God these morons. Speaking of air america, Al Franken's show is solidly OK, but Randi Rhodes, 3-6 PM, is amazing. A great show. No wonder she was beating Rush when they were on the same station in Florida.
