Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh spoke to the liberal media during his Wednesday broadcast -- specifically cable news show hosts -- in response to their publicized anguish over the Casey Anthony trial verdict.
"You know, what I don't understand about it is, they're all card-carrying liberals... when does the death of a child bother them?" Limbaugh asked. "I've never seen them get so upset over the death of a child."
Limbaugh continually invoked abortion, advising that those distraught over the trial outcome, particularly those in the media, should "...just tell yourselves that [Anthony] just waited a couple of years to get an abortion and you'll feel better."
"If the child had died in what, two years earlier in the womb, this woman would be a star, she'd be a hero," he also said. "And folks I don't think that's a cliche to say, and I don't think it's a cheap attempt at humor. I think that while it may be uncomfortable to hear one of the reasons its uncomfortable to hear is there is an element of truth in it."
MSNBC news host Ed Schultz struck back at Limbaugh on last night's The Ed Show. He called the right-winger's words "shameful" and proceeded to call him "the worst of the worst."
By "protecting only the rich," Schultz added, Republicans "...prove time and time again that they don't really give a damn about you after your born... [they] murder the American dream."
