Seattle Times letters to the editor

February 3, 2009 at 4:00 PM

Rush Limbaugh

Pause the pontification, please

Thank you for the Leonard Pitts Jr. column criticizing Rush Limbaugh [“That’s why they’re called dittoheads,” syndicated columnist, Feb. 1]. Too many journalists are guilty of the “journalistic malpractice” mentioned by Pitts because of their failure to criticize Limbaugh.

I hope Pitts and others will continue to challenge Limbaugh and expose him for the fraud that he is.

Limbaugh’s resume is void of accomplishment. He gave no quarter to lawbreaking drug addicts until he became one. His racist remarks cost him a broadcasting job (he resigned before he was fired). He has failed at marriage three times. He has never served in the military. He has never raised children. He has no credentials to be pontificating to the rest of us.

If The Times and other media will publish more articles that expose Limbaugh and inform the Limbaugh “dittoheads,” perhaps we can avoid electing the type of leadership that got us into our current mess.

— David Storm, Everett
