Rush a traitor?

Oops, those cattle raisers are really not happy with their compadre Rush Limbaugh. Apparently he cut two public service announcements criticizing animal abuse that the Humane Society of the United States is sending to media outlets and posting on the Web.

Bad idea - at least if you don't want to start a stampede of hacked off cowboys.

A gentle rebuke comes from CR Jolley, a columnist at Jolley suggests Rushbo rethink his move because he has stuck his "well-polished Gucci boot directly into a steaming, fresh cow patty."

Cow guys are nothing if not graphic.

Anyway, more toward the jumping-up-and-down end of the spectrum, like Yosemite Sam jumping, is the Texas Cattle Feeders Association. In their last newsletter, the association provides a comment to send to soulmate Rush where you only have to fill in your name.


Because we share many of the same conservative beliefs, I am very saddened to learn of your support for an organization that is working hard to put all cattlemen, including me, out of business. The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has long pursued a goal of putting an end to all animal agriculture.

I know you believe in doing solid research. If you really check into what HSUS is up to, you will find that – despite having $200 million in assets – HSUS does not operate a single animal shelter nor provide financial support for local humane societies or shelters. HSUS is nothing other than a radical political organization determined to force all Americans to eat a vegan diet and forfeit the unique nutritional properties of beef.

Many well-intentioned people have been duped into donating their hard-earned dollars to HSUS because the drive-by media refuses to expose the truth about HSUS. I hope your show will become a place where people can get the facts about this organization's real agenda.


Cattle raisers can also be dramatic, but they've had years of provocation by the "drive-by media."

I did not know that about HSUS. Thanks for the beef about the group.
