You people are insane if you think that Rush Limbaugh seriously called for rioting in Denver, or anywhere for that matter. There's been plenty of occasions where the guy has said things in a manner which any idiot could tell he was joking, yet those in the media with opposing views print transcripts of his words as though he was serious.
When you read a transcript of a radio show or speech, or just about anything for that matter, it is often impossible to guage the level of seriousness, sarcasm, etc., that the speaker had.
And that is what many in the media have taken advantage of in the past, not only with regards to Rush, but just about anyone they disagree with.
And the sad part is that it actually works, because it fooled most of you. Hook, line and sinker. It really is disturbing to see the gullability of many people on here, especially when it sheds a negative light on those that they disagree with and even hate.
But I'm actually willing to give someone the benefit of the doubt, especially when those who are jumping down his throat have a clear AGENDA.

I can't help but wonder why anyone listens to that worthless pompass windbag any damn way.

This is just more circus to entertain the folks at home, it doesn't matter at all, they need to make people believe there is a real battle for the presidency going on-the new POTUS has already been chosen.
We don't have free and fair elections in the united states of america!!
What are you thinking?? All this drama in the media is a diversion.
Send in the clowns.

I have questions on Operation Chaos though. Rush is taking advantage of serious problems in the voting process. He isn't the first to do this and this isn't just a right-wing thing. What he is doing CAN cause riots but it is purely the faults of Democrat election rules. Republican rules only allow for registered Republicans to vote while any independent can vote for Democrats during the primary. Its easy to claim to be an independent when walking to the polls and be allowed to vote for a Democrat.

According to the article, Rush did NOT say that he is calling for riots.
He said that he is 'dreaming of riots'. That he hopes there are some.
