DCCC dignifies Limbaugh beef with a response


Rush LimbaughRush Limbaugh believes that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee took some of his words out of context in a mid-term political email blast and threatened to sue. DCCC did at least respond.

But it wasn’t much of a response.

The comments were on the topic of campus sexual assault, and the Limbaugh quote appropriated by DCCC involved the concept of whether, when on a date, “no” can sometimes mean “yes.”

Limbaugh and counsel said that the use of ten words on that topic was twisted by DCCC to present a false impression of his full views.

According to Eric Wemple of the Washington Post, DCCC’s response is that Limbaugh’s claims are “absurd.”

According to Politico, Limbaugh spokesman Brian Glicklich stated, “The letter is non responsive and nonsensical. What is incontrovertible is the fact that the DCCC changed Rush Limbaugh’s words to convey the opposite of what he said. This is not a matter of opinion; it is obvious. We will confer with our counsel.”
