From Carrie Budoff Brown:

News flash: Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) just praised Rush Limbaugh on the Senate floor.
"What could be a more worthwhile cause?" Reid asked today on the floor. "I think it's really good that this money on Ebay is going to be raised for this purpose. When I spoke to Mark May, he and I thought this probably wouldn't make much money, a letter written by Democratic senators complaining about something."

"Never did we think that this letter would bring money of this nature," Reid said. "Everyone knows that Rush Limbaugh and I don't agree on everything in life and maybe that is kind of an understatement. But without qualification, Mark May, the owner of the network that has Rush Limbaugh, and Rush Limbaugh should know that this letter that they're auctioning is going to be something that raises money for a worthwhile cause."

UPDATE:  Congratulations to "bettyc588."   You are the winning bidder for the Harry Reid/Rush Limbaugh letter.   $2,100,100.  Wow.
