Rush Limbaugh received the presidential medal of freedom and may have tainted the award forever. Jefferson Smith sits in for Thom Hartmann. Smith is an American entrepreneur, radio personality, and politician in the U.S. state of Oregon. He is the founder of the Bus Project, and served in the Oregon House of Representatives, representing District 47 in east Portland, from 2009 to 2012. Smith lists some of Rush Limbaugh's most vile comments and past behaviors.
