Best of the banter

With the presidential candidates testing the waters or not testing the waters (see Hagel who continue to breaks the dovish side of KT's heart), news reports are filled with humor and hypocrisy. It's time to rejoice.

The Politico reports:

The Limbaugh Name Lives On

Derailed in the last Congress, a bill was approved by the Senate Friday to name a federal courthouse in Cape Girardeau, Mo., after Rush Hudson Limbaugh Sr., grandfather of the conservative radio host.

The elder Limbaugh, who held senior posts in the American Bar Association, was a legend in Cape Girardeau, practicing law for nearly 80 years until his death in 1996 at 104. In the 1950s, he also served as a special envoy to India.

The Limbaugh bill, which was introduced by Rep. Jo Ann Emerson (R-Mo.) with bipartisan support from the Missouri congressional delegation, now goes to President Bush for his approval.

The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Peter Pace, condemns homosexuality as immoral. KT could opine on all the reason why gays are leading the Iraqi insurgency but a commenter on a NYT blog pretty much nailed it:

Our homophobic military vents through homoerotic cruelty. Read: Abu Gharib.
