The Catcher of the Phony

Phony of the Week: Senator Daniel Akaka.

On Monday, Senator Akaka said regarding the Rush Limbaugh "phony soldier" controversy.

"Well I feel that any citizen has a vote, a right to voice their opinion on anything they want to do and I think this Limbaugh, though I don't agree with him on many things, has the right to say what he says. And I don't think we need do legislation to get at him. I think, however, it's something that people can talk about and maybe help them render judgments. But I don't think we need to set any laws to stop that."

Yet he signed the letter with 40 other Senate Democrats to Clear Channel Communications that denounced Limbaugh.
