Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) leveled a personal attack at radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh from the Senate floor on Monday.
In a speech blasting Limbaugh for his "phony soldiers" comment, Harkin concluded, "Well, I don't know, maybe he (Limbaugh) was just high on his drugs again. I don't know whether he was or not. If so, he ought to let us know, but that shouldn't be an excuse.
"I want to make it clear that I respect Mr. Limbaugh's right to say whatever he wants, but we also have a right," Harkin said. "We have a right not to listen to him. I think the best thing to do for him is tune him out. Just tune out Rush Limbaugh and listen to more responsible talk show hosts in this country."
Three years ago, Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) introduced an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2005 Defense Authorization bill, calling on American Forces Radio and Television Service to provide "political balance" in its public affairs programming. (See story)
It was part of a liberal effort -- spearheaded by Media Matters for America -- to remove Rush Limbaugh's radio show from taxpayer-funded Armed Forces Radio.

I have to tell you, this makes me mad. Dingy Harry and his ilk, going after Rush, misquoting him ON PURPOSE, to make it look like Rush called ALL American Service men and women "phony." Rush did NOTHING OF THE KIND. If you want to know what's really going on, read the real story here. I heard this from Rush before the SHAMEFUL attack on him from the Senate floor. I knew then what he was talking about. But, ever on the lookout to find something to use against him, his left wing enemies, as usual heard what they wanted to here, and not what was actually said.
Come on Senators, get the ear wax out of your ears!! I think YOU owe Rush an apology.
