Re: The Democratic Party Is Chaos

I just want to make sure I have this straight:  

Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, terrorist bombers and champions of the riot leaders at the 1968 Democrat Convention, become Left-wing icons who help launch the political career of the Democrats’ current presidential frontrunner. 

Rush Limbaugh, by contrast, merely makes an observation that he can imagine similar riots occurring at the next Democrat convention — riots that would further show the American people that (as one might suspect from the way the Left has rallied around Ayers and Dohrn) the lunatics are now the vanguard of the asylum — and Democrats like Ken Salazar want him reprimanded.

Has Sen. Salazar asked for Barack Obama to be reprimanded for maintaining a friendly relationship with an unrepentent terrorist (whose only regret is that he did not do more)?  Has he asked for Bill Ayers to be reprimanded?
