McCain Demands Rush Apologize for "Phony Soldiers" Comment

Conservatives/Republicans can't seem to get anything right. They had a field day with the Petraeus/MoveOn flap, now they've given it all back. It would seem that all Republicans have left is to vilify anyone who doesn't support the failed war in Iraq. This strategy guarantees they will lose the next elections in 2008:

From TPM:
Time.com's Ana Marie Cox asked John McCain for a response to Rush's comments, and she received this blistering statement from the veteran and torture victim:
Any American who risks his or her life to defend us has earned the respect and gratitude of every American citizen, irrespective of their views on this war. If Mr. Limbaugh made the remark he is reported to have made, it reflects very poorly on him and not the objects of his offensive comment. I expect most Americans, whatever their political views, will have the same reaction. He would be well advised to retract it and apologize.
