Can this really be true?

This is the billboard that advertises Rush Limbaugh's radio show. In Tucson.


No. Just, no.

UPDATE: The Ad has been removed.
In the wake of the tragedy, Clear Channel Outdoor management in Tucson quickly elected to take down this ad - believing that discussion of its interpretation would not contribute to the desire for healing in the Tucson community
I commend Clear Channel for taking this clearly sensible action out of sensitivity to the very raw and painful emotions that the people of Tucson must be feeling. But I don't think it's really the "discussion of its interpretation" that is really injuring the desire for healing, but rather the rather ad itself and it's pretty direct correlation between political commentary and actual gunfire.

But anyway.

Yes, it's true, but it's not connected to any kind of violence, you know. *heavy, heavy sarcasm intended*
