How do I search firefox Smart Search from the command line in OS X?

I absolutely love Firefox Smart Keyword Searches.
Beyond just the default preinstalled ones,
I also use custom ones for easynews, rottentomatoes, metafilter, etc. Here's my question: Is it possible to launch these from the command line in OS X? For example, ideally I would enter (into a bash prompt) rt apple
to open a new tab in firefox with a search result for "Apple" in rotten tomatoes, like this.
. Similarly, I would like to be able to enter easy creative commons
to have it launch the keyword bookmark "easy" which searches easynews global for "creative commons"
. Is this possible to do, preferably without using Applescript or Automator?
