Rush Limbaugh Balks When He Gets What He Wanted, and Finally Some Democrats Figure Out Media

March 3rd, 2009

My hope is that the Democratic Party will use its newfound media savvy for good and not for evil.

See, they know that Rush Limbaugh is a political clown. He throws dogshit from the peanut gallery where he knows he has no responsibility, where his hypocricy is irrelevant. The Republican party, having made him an honorary member of Congress, having invited him to the White House for dinner, sees him as a rabble rouser, part of their propaganda arm but not, of course, a real politician.

But now the Obama administration is saying that Rush represents the true Republican party. The drug abuser and accuser, the racist and callow slinger of words designed to foment division between Americans, the runner up to Ann Coulter, pay attention to him. Because if you don’t agree with Rush (and not many actually do), then you’re not a real Republican.

It would be a vicious tactic, a part of a larger divide-and-conquer strategy that is being enacted on the Republicans now that they’re down, but for the fact that it’s everything they’ve ever wanted. He wanted that position. They kept giving it to him. Now they look like assholes and are backpedaling furiously to distance themselves from him.

Conservatism has proven itself to be poison and he’s standing there, trying to look innocent while trying to hide his skull and crossbones label. All the Obama administration has done is point to the label.
