When California Rep. Henry Waxman became the Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, we knew it was going to be bad. But did anyone actually think that he would stoop this low?
The American Spectator is reporting that Henry Waxman has asked his investigative staff to start compiling reports on Rush, Sean Hannity, and Mark Levin based on transcripts of their shows. He also is reportedly prepared to call in FCC chairman, Kevin Martin to discuss the Fairness Doctrine. (Wow! I did not see that one coming)!
“Limbaugh isn’t the only one who needs to be made uncomfortable about what he says on the radio,” says a House leadership source. “We don’t have as big a megaphone as these guys, but this all political, and we’ll do what we can to gain the advantage. If we can take them off their game for a while, it will help our folks out there on the campaign trail.”
Since this is a far left version of McCarthyism, a better name for Waxman’s committee might be The House Committee on Pro-American Activities.
If they want to be honest and upfront about it, I mean.
If you want a good laugh, Rush has an excellent closeup of Waxman’s nostrils up on his site. Not for the faint of heart, however.
Rush listeners have been calling Waxman’s office, since yesterday’s show, and are being told that this is just a rumor.
The American Spectator stands by it’s story:
None of this is fictitious. One can only be curious if the powerful Waxman and his Democratic colleagues who have a penchant for passing House Resolutions will have the courage to clarify the issue by introducing a one-sentence House Resolution that reads: “Resolved: The House of Representatives supports the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.”
