... says critics rely on "little pimple-faced kids that are working at wannabe websites"
Apparently stung by criticism over comments he made about Cindy Sheehan and inundated with what he calls "far more hate mail than I usually get," Rush Limbaugh lashed out at Media Matters for America, describing us on his August 18 show as "little pimple-faced kids that are working at wannabe websites."

On August 16, Media Matters first reported that Limbaugh compared the actions of war critic Cindy Sheehan, whose son was killed in Iraq, to Bill Burkett, the retired Texas Air National Guard officer who provided CBS' 60 Minutes with unauthenticated documents regarding President Bush's National Guard record. Asserting that Sheehan's "story is nothing more than forged documents," Limbaugh said, "Cindy Sheehan is just Bill Burkett."

Limbaugh claimed on August 18 that his comments were taken "out of context" and that he simply meant that "[t]he whole event [Sheehan's protest] is staged" and that "all she is is an opportunity like Bill Burkett was an opportunity, to bash Bush."
