The Top of the Ticket at the L.A. Times has a delightful piece on the latest topic pushed by Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh:
President Barack Obama doesn’t just want your gun. He wants your rod-and-reel, too:
Actually the White House has created a task force to study how to better manage the nation’s use of its oceans, perhaps with an eye to limiting — but not eliminating — areas where sport fishing is allowed. There is, after all, an issue of depleting resources. In fact, the International Game Fish Assn. supports sustainable conservation efforts.
But to hear conservative talk show hosts tell it, Obama has already issued an executive order to ban fishing altogether.
On Fox News’ “Glenn Beck” show, the fire-breathing conservative — who apologized to his viewers the other night for giving disgraced Democrat Eric Massa an hour of airtime — blasted the White House for a stealth move to deny Americans their God-given right to fish, “done in darkness by executive order.”
He added: “Forget about the frickin’ fish. People are losing their rights. Who’s more important: the fish or you?”
We always figured that Gov. Sonny Perdue knew something we didn’t when he fired up his “Go Fish Georgia” program.
