The drug addict himself, Rush Limbaugh, is causing controversy again after he made comments calling for riots in Denver during the Democratic National Convention this summer. He said the riots would ensure a Democrat is not elected as president, and his listeners have a responsibility to make sure it happens."Riots in Denver, the Democrat Convention would see to it that we don't elect Democrats," Limbaugh said during Wednesday's radio broadcast. He then went on to say that's the best thing that could happen to the country.

Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper had this to say about Limbaugh: "Anyone who would call for riots in an American city has clearly lost their bearings."

BTW, in case anyone is interested, inciting a riot is a Class A Misdemeanor and it carries a potential sentence of 5 years.

You would think he'd have a backup pharmacist for those times when he's running low. Guess not.

I listen to his show. He was remarking on the Rev. Al Sharpton's comments that if Obama is not the nominee there will be "protests" by the black community.

I'll have to listen to this myself. Everytime they say Rush said something inflammatory it always turns out to be completely out of context and wrong. I'm sure this time will be no exception.

The remarks are irresponsible, much of his audience is made up of illiterate rednecks that are capable of anything.

I think you should get in touch with revs. Al and Jesse. I'm sure they will "encourage" these protests to threaten the dem party into giving the nomination to Obama. Talk to Al, he said it, not Rush.

You must be one of those tolerant, kook-left liberals who loves diversity of thought and free speech. Who loves his brother from the other side of the aisle. You know, one of those libs who has a big tent for all points of view. Isn't that the mantra of the left. We welcome all.

ROFLMAO!
