DUers Resent Limbaugh Success!
FROM DU: Reid's Letter Condemning Limbaugh Fetches $50K On eBay
It may turn out to be the most valuable letter radio personality Rush Limbaugh ever received. Correspondence from Nevada Democrat Harry Reid was sent earlier this month to Clear Channel CEO Mark Mays, officially calling on him to condemn popular conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh's controversial 'phony soldiers' remark.
Clear Channel syndicates Limbaugh's show. Mays refused to condemn the remarks and Limbaugh recently placed Reid's letter on eBay, pledging to match whatever it fetched and donate it all to The Marine Corps - Law Enforcement Foundation. As of Tuesday morning, the top bid for the letter was over $50,000. The bidding ends Friday. (sabra)
DUers Chime In:
--A fool and his money are soon parted.
--That will buy a lot of OxyContin.
--So, once again Rush has managed to make a laughing stock out of the Dems! Limbaugh is a windbag, but he's a master of making Democrats look foolish.
--There is the possibility that the auction could be pulled. He has many political signatures that haven't been authorized for sale purposes. If there is a question of ownership to the letter he may not have the right to sell this letter. I've made my concerns known to EBay at it's complaint line. Since it all goes to a charity, it will be a question as to whether or not any of the signature people want to challenge this sale.
--Give me a fucking break...
