Beyond What Rights

[Posted by reader_iam]
U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Colo., was among 41 senators who signed a letter condemning radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh, and Salazar said Wednesday he would vote for a resolution censuring Limbaugh for “going beyond whatever rights he had to attack soldiers.”
Ken Salazar voted for a resolution criticizing for its ad, but other than his vote, Salazar “didn’t register much righteous indignation,” said Dick Wadhams, chairman of the Colorado Republican Party.
Excuse me if I'm "going beyond whatever rights" I may have to "attack" Congress or its members, but I just can't let go by, without noting, another example of the lamentable trend that's been developing lately, and its implications.

Yeah, yeah, go ahead: Say it means nothing to you. To which I say: That's clear as day.

Just gross, feeling compelled to put myself in the position of being accused of being on the side of OR Rush Limbaugh and the game they are both playing. But I have to say, there are worse things--and one of them is the Senate joining in, and in particular if even one senator pukes out the words "going beyond whatever rights he had" in the process.
