Oops. 20 million people misled-- again!

Ahhh, Rush Limbaugh. Twenty million listeners, and nary a grain of truth. His latest claim? That America would be a paradise if we took the lessons of Britain's terrorist bombing to heart. The problem? He's lying.

Rush Limbaugh stated that he'd like to import a law that would deport "anybody who speaks out against this country." According to Limbaugh, under such a law, "We'd get rid of Michael Moore, we'd get rid of half the Democratic Party," adding: "That would be fabulous."

Contrary to Limbaugh's visions of deporting Michael Moore and Democrats, the new British policy to which he refers does not affect British citizens but, rather, expands the grounds for deporting foreign extremists.

Gee, I can't inagine any American citizen being against a law designed to rid the nation of openly seditious foreign agents. But that just doesn't steam up flag-waving morons, now, does it? I wonder if this proclamation aired on government-sponsored radio in Iraq... Rush's talk show is the only opinion show to be featured, after all.
