      I thought this was good!!!We are edeuatcd by the great entertainers like Rush Limbaugh, Hagel said Tuesday during a speech in Washington, according to the Huffington Post. You know, I wish Rush Limbaugh and others like that would run for office, a sarcastic Hagel continued. They have so much to contribute and so much leadership and they have an answer for everything. And they would be elected overwhelmingly. [The truth is] they try to rip everyone down and make fools of everybody but they don't have any answers. My response:What a sensible and honest man .I just hope when Obama is President he can sort all those nut case radio station hosts out, it's about time someone did something about them.Chuck Hagel is one of the very few decent Republicans and he has earned the respect of many Democrats
