Limbaugh’s Big Mouth Cost Him A Month’s PayOctober 19, 2007
There are a lot of ways to spin this whole Reid letter/”phony soldiers” fracas, but I’m going to go ahead and speculate that Rush Limbaugh wasn’t planning on donating $2.1 million to the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation this year.

It makes you wonder if, privately, Rush felt like he came out the loser on this deal. Of course, the money is going to a good charity, so it’s not like he lost it at the casino or something, but that’s a whole lot of cash. On the other hand, perhaps it was a small price to pay in what amounted to an effective exercise in self-promotion, along with the fact that he was able to successfully make the whole “phony soldiers” thing look petty (which it was anyway), and score a hit on the Democrats in one swoop.
