Limbaugh, Stupid Republicans and the Rest of Us

I have been thinking about how the majority of the republicans and conservatives have seemed to be bowing down to Limbaugh. It has gotten to the point of silly.

First you had Phil Gingrey, from Georgia who said how no one was really paying attention to Limbaugh and he was just blowing off steam when he said, "I want him to fail", talking about Pres. Obama. Limbaugh was.

Well, it wasn't a couple of days after that then Gingrey was on the phone with Limbaugh, saying how sorry he was, how he had messed up, and how he had really insulted poor Rush. Well, give me a break.

Then, it was Michael Steele. He ran a brutal campaign to become the head of the RNC, against several other candidates. They voted I think it was 6 times, before he finally won and became the head. Well, he went on the D L Hughley show on CNN. This is how it was described by Politico:

In a little-noticed interview Saturday night, Steele dismissed Limbaugh as an “entertainer” whose show is “incendiary” and “ugly.”

Steele’s criticism made him the highest-ranking Republican to pick a fight with the popular and polarizing conservative talk show host,

Then Rush fired back, a furious counter-assault by Limbaugh, on his show Monday afternoon in which he told the loquacious RNC chair to pipe down and recognize that he's not a "talking head media star."

Steele told POLITICO he moved to stop the feud Monday afternoon with a phone call to Limbaugh.

But the new RNC chairman’s extraordinary comments won’t sit well with the millions of conservative listeners Limbaugh draws each week, and Steele aides scrambled to limit the damage Monday morning by trying to change the subject.

So, Steele, (cream puff) went to Limbaugh and crawled on his knees and did the same as Gingrey.. said I am sorry Rush.. I was bad.. Again.. here we go.. big, bad Rush, rules the republicans and says this is the way it is.

Now, after these 2 instances all the other republicans are afraid to say anything against Rush. When they are asked, as they are over and over, NO ONE will say a word against It gets very funny.

Today, in my paper, I was reading the opinion pages and the letters to the editor. Now, most everyone knows I live in Missouri, and usually I get mostly GOP talking points in the letters.. well imagine my surprise when they were more against Rush than for

But the one that stood out the most was this one. It was so funny, it is the main premise for this post.

It is from a gentleman in Kansas City and he says:
Let me get this straight. The Republican Party, the party that has sold itself for years as the only one that can keep us safe from foreign interests, terrorists and economic meltdown, is now the party that doesn't have the guts to stand up to a radio personality?
That's just pathetic.

That is pretty pathetic, isn't it? But when you think about it, all that tough on terrorism talk was always about their being more scared than the rest of us, too. They really are a terrified bunch.

For me, Al Franken's "Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot" exposed what an awful wreck of a human being Rush is.

I hope the repubs stick by him because they couldn't have a more odious "voice" to represent their core values. He is a one-man wave of destruction who will lead them down the Goldwater path of extremism. Go for it, GOPers!
