Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is knocking Rush Limbaugh for saying he was beaten up.

Going ten rounds with CNBC’s John Harwood, outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said he didn’t care who the GOP nominee ended up being, because “they’re all losers,” and called his replacement, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) a “lump of coal” — though he “didn’t mean to be mean-spirited.”

But Reid reserved most of his ire for Rush Limbaugh, whom he accused of starting a rumor that there was more to his eye injury than meets the eye. (#nailedit)

“It shows the credibility of Rush Limbaugh, he’s the guy who got all this started,” Reid said. “Why in the world would I come up with a story that I got hurt in my own bathroom with my wife standing there? How could anyone say anything like that?”

…“I don’t believe for a minute that whatever happened to Harry Reid has anything to do with an exercise machine unless somebody repeatedly threw him into it,” Limbaugh said on his radio program three weeks ago. “Harry Reid looks like and is acting like — and now with this announcement, behaving like — somebody who may have been beaten up.”

    A rational person would think if anyone knows what its like to get beat up, it is rush, but nope. He even gets that wrong.

  • arc99

    If Sen. Reid were in fact beaten up only subhuman slime like Rush Limbaugh would express anything other than condemnation of the perpetrators of the assault.

    • John Tarter

      And given the things Dingy Harry has said about others, why should we be sorry that he has gotten busted up? Harry Reid is a vile and vindictive old man who has not an ounce of class.
      Come on, just tell us, how did Harry Reid get so wealthy on a government salary? He most likely did get involved with some shady characters over the years and if you ask me he only got what was coming to him.

    Limbaugh is a human turd for saying things absurd.
    That Harry was beaten and was not exercis’in.
    So Harry is dirty with him.
    Cool down, Harry, you can’t fight a loser even if you give him a one eye handicap.
    The guy is nothing, he’s unworthy of a clap.
    But clap he’s got…
    … and that’s without doubt.

    Relax Harry. You’ll be fine. Rush on the other hand has drugged himself deaf, and secured his niche in broadcasting history as the 4 times married, racist, draft dodger who got busted smuggling Viagra to the Dominican.

      I….you….but Limbaugh…
      I got nothin’.(But an upvote.)

    He’s got nothing to lose…give ’em hell Harry!

    “It shows the credibility of Rush Limbaugh, he’s the guy who got all this started,” ….. He says this after he spent months saying Romney didn’t pay taxes.

    • Hirightnow

      Of the two, Reid is the more believable.

      HEY GARY hows it hangin???

    Limbaugh’s mouth has switched places with that part of his anatomy that got him out of the draft long ago.

    If Harry Reid lost sight in one eye due to a faulty piece of exercise equipment, why hasn’t he sued the manufacturer, or at least pressed for a device recall so that other consumers are not at risk of a similar accident? Has he even identified the make and model of the equipment so that other people can get their units checked out?

    “Adam Jentleson, the senator’s communications director, told the Associated Press that the accident occurred when an elastic exercise band broke and hit Reid in the face, causing him to fall. As the senator fell, Jentleson said, Reid struck part of the equipment and broke several bones near his right eye. Reid then hit the floor and broke his ribs.”

      Perhaps he is pursuing the matter privately. If I were Sen. Reid, that is what I would do to avoid the inevitable partisan nonsense from the usual suspects about the evils of trial lawyers, lawsuits, government regulation, personal responsibility etc. etc. etc.

    • frambley1

      I guess if he doesn’t do things the way you would that means he is lying about it?

      This is the same kind of questioning they use on fox so called news. All it does is raise doubt, it doesn’t actually say anything, and therefore cannot be argued against. I noticed that it is the same type of questioning they use when exploring pseudoscience like Ancient Aliens and houses full of ghosts.

    • fahvel

      what an ass – the question too. do you ponder this crap or does it just flow?

      • rg9rts

        This guy was born stupid and proves it every time he posts..

  • Ricky C.

    Hey there one eye, how does it feel for someone to tell a lie about you?

    • frambley1

      Nice. You have a way with words.

    Still waiting for some clarification of why Rush and 3 other known chicken wranglers spent time in an area of the Dominican Republic known as a haven for pedophiles. When challenged about this on his show he cut the phone line of the caller. What was he doing there?
