Democrats in Congress have launched an online petition entitled “Stand Strong Against Rush Limbaugh.”

As we reported here, Rush Limbaugh and Barack Obama have been feuding over the President’s liberal agenda. Limbaugh stated on his radio show earlier this week that he wished that the President’s Socialist policies would fail over the next four years, so that America can return to a conservative agenda.

In response to this feud, Congressional Democrats have decided to start a petition. As first reported in the Drudge Report, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has launched an online petition where any liberal can express his/her disgust with Mr. Limbaugh. The link to the petition is here.

The Democratic Congressional Committee is the official campaign arm of the Democrats in the House of Representatives. According to its website, the DCCC’s principal mission is to help Democratic House candidates get elected. The head of the DCCC is Representative Chris Van Hollen of Maryland. More information is available on the DCCC website here.

According to the petition, liberals need to express their disgust at Rush Limbaugh for exercising his freedom of speech. To quote the DCCC:

Limbaugh’s cheap shot at President Obama might be the first by the Republican attack machine this year but we know that it won’t be the last. We need every grassroots Democrat to show Rush Limbaugh and all of the Republicans what they’re up against if they start attacking President Obama and Democrats who are working to end the failed GOP policies of the last eight years.

Really? Are Democrats going to start a sad little petition every time someone high-profile criticizes our sitting President? Is criticizing liberals anathema just because we are in an economic downturn?

Frankly, this is just a waste of everyone’s time. I’m sure Limbaugh will laugh this off on his show and ignore the millions of posts that this petition will generate. I got about 15 posts into the petition before I realized that there was not a single useful thought expressed on the site, so I moved on.

Here is what Limbaugh said, that has liberal panties in a bunch:
