History in the Making

Sometimes when I am listening to Rush Limbaugh, I get the feeling that I am listening to history being made. A letter was auctioned off in support of the Marine Corp Law Enforcement Foundation. This letter was signed by 40 Democrats of the Senate asking Clear Channel to force Rush to apologize for remarks made about a phony-soldier. (The remarks themselves were not offensive and therefore did not need an apology.) In any case, in an ebay auction, this letter went for $2,100,100.00! Furthermore, Rush is going to match the donation! If you would like to read the letter or more on this, here is a link.

I love this country! Where else in the world would a letter from a bunch of Senators raise that much money for a charity? I don't think it would happen anywhere but here in America. Obviously, the Dems in the Senate who signed that letter didn't imagine this would be the outcome. But, I guess the unexpected is what makes history.

By the way, Rush challenged the 40 Senators to match the winning bid. Do you think any of them will?

I'm curious...what did Rush say about a phony soldier? Obviously our esteemed Senators have too much time on their hands...

Amen Chandra! I'm glad Rush is matching it. $4.2 million. I doubt I'll see that much money circulated in my lifetime...or two of my lifetimes for that matter...
