"Regime" must mean something different when the Left use it

Rush Limbaugh irritates the Left with his references to the Regime, rather than the Administration:

"I've never seen language like this in the American press, referring to an elected representative government, elected in a totally fair, democratic, American election -- we will have another one in November, we'll have another one for president in a couple years -- fair, free, and wonderful democracy we have in this country…. We know that word, 'regime.' It was used by George Bush, 'regime change.' You go to war with regimes. Regimes are tyrannies. They're juntas. They're military coups. The use of the word 'regime' in American political parlance is unacceptable, and someone should tell...[Limbaugh] to stop using it." ~ Chris Matthews.
Chris Matthews is one to talk. His memory must be affected by the fact that he's probably still tingling all over when he thinks about The Leader of The Regime, who I like to call His Beatitude.

Byron York sets the record straight.

Matthews is right about one thing: You go to war with regimes. I'll go that far with him on this one.
