Or so we assume, because there can be no other excuse for the radio talker's latest sick schtick.

On Wednesday, Limbaugh deep-throated a mic and insisted that Cindy Sheehan -- the Gold Star mom protesting outside President Bush's ranch in Texas -- had made up her story of grief. He compared her to the discredited CBS story about Bush's National Guard records.

The quote:
"I mean, Cindy Sheehan is just Bill Burkett. Her story is nothing more than forged documents. There's nothing about it that's real, including the mainstream media's glomming onto it. It's not real. It's nothing more than an attempt. It's the latest effort made by the coordinated left."

Imagine a left-winger saying this about a conservative parent who lost a son in the war. Imagine a liberal driving over crosses and American flags. Or digging through the conservative parent's background to reveal her divorce. Or calling the mom a "crackpot" and a "traitor."

We used to think the people running this country were just bullies. Now we know they're pricks.
