Limbaugh Does Dogfighting PSA for HSUS

HSUS has a new PSA on dogfighting featuring Rush Limbaugh:
In just one day recently in Georgia, peace officers and experts from the Humane Society swept in and busted two dogfighting operations...
Really? How "recently" was this and how many dogs were seized (I'm assuming more than a few in two dogfighting operations)? I haven't heard a thing about any recent Georgia dogfighting busts except the one in Wilkes Co Georgia last month. In any case, I'm hoping the HSUS is assisting law enforcement and animal control with getting the seized dogs humane care and individual evaluations. I'll be looking out for additional news on this front.

Also from the PSA:
There's no such thing as the other side of the story when it comes to dogfighting.
Yeah I guess the HSUS would like us to think that. Unfortunately there are many dogs seized from HSUS-led dogfighting busts whose fates remain unknown. And many others whose fates we do know. Sadly the "other side of the story" is what HSUS has done to the victims of these dogfighting cases. Supposedly that's changing which is why I am eager to hear how HSUS is helping the seized dogs sitting in animal control facilities right now. Why no reports on this activity from anyone?

Rush Limbaugh is a big fat idiot, to coin a phrase

If it had been your average guy obtaining prescription pain meds illegally, he'd be in jail. His money bought him a slick lawyer so he could stay out of jail and promote important things like the wasting of tea and the "experts" at the HSUS.

Despite their posturing with BF it seems the leopard hasn't changed its spots.

And.. if the folks HSUS really think that Limbaugh will give them an aura of respectability or so much as a milligram of respect amongst conservatives - they're crazier than even *I* thought they were.
