First, the quote and the date that it was supposedly made by Rush: "You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray. We miss you, James. Godspeed. [4/23/98]" Rush never said it. It was made up back in about 2005 and this article proves it.As Rush said today, this is attempt to destroy the reputation and freedom of choice of a conservative simply because of his political beliefs.
But it was Sheila Jackson Lee who was the special subject of Rush Limbaugh's new policy of answering attacks. Rush inquired, "I wonder if Ms. Jackson Lee to have any regard for the truth. Does she have any regard for hoping, desiring to sound intelligent and knowledgeable, or is she content to be happy and proud to go the floor of the House of Representatives and make a fool of herself?"
Well, it was a movie reference... in this political atmosphere I shouldn't have gone into such detail about Mr. Big's demise at the end of the movie, about the CO2 capsule, especially in reference to Rush. And certainly, I shouldn't have speculated, even metaphorically or cinematically, about that happening to Rushbo in the real world.
