Name Calling & Rush Limbaugh

I'm seeing lots of Tweets and Facebook status updates calling Rush a "fat deaf pri*k" and the like for his recent comments about Sandra Fluke. Here are two examples:

Comedian Judy G0ld on Facebook
All I can say is - FU*K YOU RUSH - YOU FAT PIECE OF SH*T WOMAN HATING DEAF DRUG ADDICT.

And @patty_bray on Twitter
Rush Limbaugh is a recovering drug addict, deaf, married 4 times, escaped Viet Nam with a high draft number. Likes Viagra and cigars.

If you disagree with his comments, the petty name calling does nothing to validate your opinion.

Why bash Rush Limbaugh for being deaf? His deafness doesn't make him dumb. His actions & words do.

It strikes me as odd, this sort of tit-for-tat. And it always makes me wonder if the progressive ship I've hitched my rowboat to isn't just as off course as the wildly gyrating right-wing one.

If progressives are so much better, why do we often act just like the right?

In regards to Rush Limbaugh,, where to start... Many people don't know that his prescription drug abuse is what caused his hearing loss..He was powerful enough to get a Doctor to lie for him and say he had a virus.. He got a Cochlear Implant pretty soon after, and amazingly is still able to do his radio show. I don't like name calling, but I also wish more people knew about what a hypocrite he is.

I never knew that was the cause of his deafness till this dust up. I had no idea prescription drug abuse could cause hearing loss. He's lucky a CI was able to help.
