Rep. Henry Waxman has asked his investigative staff to begin compiling reports on Limbaugh, and fellow radio hosts Sean Hannity and Mark Levin based on transcripts from their shows, and to call in Federal Communications Commission chairman Kevin Martin to discuss the so-called "Fairness Doctrine."
"Limbaugh isn't the only one who needs to be made uncomfortable about what he says on the radio," says a House leadership source. "We don't have as big a megaphone as these guys, but this all political, and we'll do what we can to gain the advantage. If we can take them off their game for a while, it will help our folks out there on the campaign trail."
To this "House leadership source," because Limbaugh speaks about politics, it is fair for Democrats to use the power of government to curtail his freedom of speech. Oh, excuse me -- they just want him to be made "uncomfortable."
Somehow it doesn't comfort me when politicians speak in euphemisms like gangsters in The Godfather.
