Phony Controversy

Dems fail in their effort to morph Rush Limbaugh into Jane Fonda.

I wonder why?

UPDATE: I'm just finishing Peter Collier's "FONDAS: A Hollywood Legacy," a pretty fair and not unsympathetic account of Fonda clan.

It does, however, include Jane's infamous trip to Hanoi during the war and her and her husband Tom Hayden's work to help the North Vietnamese communists win against our troops.

Moreover, when American POWs returned from Vietnam Jane Fonda attacked them as "liars, hypocrites and pawns." She challenged their claims at having been tortured at the hands of the North Vietnamese.

"Tortured men," she said, "do not march smartly off planes, salute the flag and kiss their wives. They are liars. I also want to say that these men are not heroes."

Ms. Fonda would fit in perfectly with today's MoveOn.org crowd.

Your editorial board made a commen the other day about rarely agreeing with Rush's right wing views (or something to that effect). How is Rush too right wing for your editorial board and even you?

Traitors like Hanoi Jane should have been shot upon her return to the U.S. That Liberal Hollywood continues to embrace such traitors is despicable. That decent people still give their entertainment dollars to these traitors and their sympathizers is preposterous. Nothing like handing your hard earned money to people who hate you and use it against you.
Senator McCarthy has been vindicated.
