I'm Jen O'Malley Dillon, the new Executive Director of the Democratic National Committee.
If you're anything like me, then you've had the urge to talk back to a right-wing talk radio host more than a few times. Now you can.
But we have no apologies for Rush, just a message. We need you to come up with a slogan, in ten words or less, that we'll put on a billboard where he can't miss it -- in his hometown of West Palm Beach, Florida.
Can you help us come up with a message for Rush that we'll place on a billboard right in his hometown?
We'll go through all the slogans we get, and the winner will have his or her message appear on the billboard -- and receive a free T-shirt featuring the winning slogan.
To get America back on a path to prosperity, we'll need to leave behind the failed partisan attack politics of the past. Americans voted for a new direction in November. Choosing Rush Limbaugh to be the voice of their party -- as Republican leaders have done -- is not the answer.
Send in your suggestion of ten words or less for a billboard and we'll choose the best one to put in Rush's own "backyard":
Jen O'Malley Dillon
Democratic National Committee

There is something seriously wrong with liberals and the liberal mind set.

And this morning on the Laura Ingraham show, she said that it was David Axelrod, Obama's chief advisor, who gave the green light to proceed with this latest persecution tactic.
All Americans should be outraged and terrified at this attempt to silence freedom of speeech.
Obama is directly responsible for this.
Originally posted by jsobecky I highlighted the most hypocritical and ironic part of her statement. Amazing that she can actually use the words "leave behind the failed partisan attack politics of the past" in the same breath as calling for a derogatory statement to put up on a billboard!
If Republican leaders aren't willing to tell Rush, then we will. Americans want President Obama to succeed. Our country's future depends on it. Rooting for the President's failure is rooting for our country to fail.

Attacking a private citizen like this is out of bounds and, if you ask me, immature.
Mark McKinnon, a top adviser in President George W. Bush's campaigns, acknowledged the value of picking a divisive opponent. "We used a similar strategy by making Michael Moore the face of the Democratic Party," he said of the documentary filmmaker. "That's why we gave him credentials to cover the 2004 convention and then turned the spotlight on him."

No one is attempting to silence him. Too many people try to make "disagreement" out to be an attempt to silence. It's just not true. Besides, Rush has been spewing his filth at Obama since he joined to race for the presidency. He's been attacking Obama since before people even knew who Obama was. And NOW we're supposed to be concerned about poor Rush?
