Tonight on Hannity & Colmes an exclusive interview with Rush Limbaugh …

Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle says threats have increased against him and his family and blames talk show host "Rush Limbaugh and all of the Rush Limbaugh wannabes" for an increasingly negative tone in politics.

"What happens when Rush Limbaugh attacks those of us in public life is that people aren't satisfied just to listen," Daschle, D-S.D., told reporters Wednesday. "They want to act because they get emotionally invested. And so, you know, the threats to those of us in public life go up dramatically, on our families and on us, in a way that's very disconcerting."

Daschle was the target of an anthrax-contaminated letter sent to Capitol Hill last year, although he did not mention that incident Wednesday. Rush Limbaugh reacts to those comments tonight on Hannity & Colmes…You don't want to miss this exclusive interview!
