Rush Limbaugh falsely claimed that Democrats "have reformatted the [economic recovery] bill -- they've made it a PDF file when they posted it. ... And, so, you can read every page, but you cannot keyword search it. It's not a text file as legislation normally is as posted on these public websites. They don't want anybody knowing what's in this." In fact, as Adobe Systems notes of PDFs: "You can run a search using either the Search window or the Find toolbar. In either case, Reader searches the PDF body text, layers, form fields, and digital signatures."
This, of course, is known to about everyone that uses Adobe products, including, as stated above, the FREE Adobe Reader...as is generally known by everyone with even basic computer literacy.
Also, just about every fucking document released on the internet is released as a PDF for a number of reasons. And I'm willing to bet any cursory research will show this was the predominant method of release under the GOP Congress.
But that asshole is too lazy to know or care.
