No, Robert Gibbs, We Just Know Barry’s Policies Will Fail
Today, speaking to reporters, Barack Obama’s future former press secretary Robert Gibbs said “It would be charitable to say he doubled down on what he said in January in … wishing and hoping for economic failure in this country. I can only imagine what might have been said a few years ago if somebody might have said that on the other side relating to what | Read More »
“How do ya like me now?”
This past Wednesday night, RedState and Human Events held a party welcoming back Republicans to Congress. Our special guest and keynote speaker was Michael Steele. In his opening remarks he mentioned RedState not endorsing him. He said he could get over it, but would say to me (calling me out by name) what Obama said after he secured the nomination — “How do ya like | Read More »
The Orchestrated Effort to Start Limbaugh vs. Cantor
I told you yesterday that the ABC News story saying Cantor rebuked Limbaugh was an organized effort on the left. Today we find out why. The Politico publishes a list of the people Nancy Pelosi hates. Rush Limbaugh and Eric Cantor are the top two guys on the right that she hates. It’s kind of sad Boehner and McConnell aren’t up there. But Cantor and | Read More »
The rumor is true. I got a bit of face time with Rush Limbaugh yesterday in the green room. He was as warm and gracious as you’d expect. It was a high honor. I had lunch with Vice President Cheney a few weeks before he left office and was not nearly as intimidated as I was meeting Rush — the stuttering I had as a | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh at CPAC
At 5:00 p.m. today at CPAC, Rush Limbaugh will close out the show. The audience will be huge. The speech will be awesome. And we’ll be bringing it to you live on RedState. Oh, and if God smiles on me today, I’ll get to meet Rush. It may be a Saturday, but things haven’t slowed down. This is the best CPAC I’ve ever been to.
A little more on why we can’t take John Feehery seriously over his Limbaugh rant
First, you need to have a bit of sympathy for John Feehery. He’s attacking Rush Limbaugh because he needs the money. Feehery sold his soul to the MPAA and they fired him after the Democrats took over Congress. He needs to feed his family. For some people, political prostitution is no great leap — particularly when its a two client lobbyist who fancies himself a | Read More »
Lashing out at Limbaugh
Three different people emailed me a link to this Politico column all saying the same thing: “I didn’t know John Feehery was such a d**k.” The guy pretends to speak for the entire Republican Party. He probably actually thinks he does because a look at his resume reveals the following: He worked for Bob Michel. He managed communications for Speaker Hastert. And, direct from his | Read More »
On Phil Gingrey & Rush Limbaugh
You’ve no doubt seen this article in the Politico. The article, which originally erred by naming Tom Price instead of properly citing Phil Gingrey, quotes Gingrey as follows: “I think that our leadership, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, are taking the right approach,” Gingrey said. “I mean, it’s easy if you’re Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh or even sometimes Newt Gingrich to stand back and | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh, Barack Obama, and Mitch McConnell
I have previous posited that Mitch McConnell, hero to so many on the right, has infected the GOP with a nasty cancer of defeatism. If you listen to someone like Lincoln Chafee, it’s all part of the plan to hold the caucus together. “He’s a good mathematician and he’s going to be counting votes – especially if Obama will be wading in,” Chafee said. “And | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh Continues Proving Liberals Are Stupid
So there’s this video of Rush Limbaugh that’s surfaced. In it, Rush talks about keeping people tuned in and engaged to his radio program. Naturally, many on the left are portraying this as the caption at Fark does — “Early interview with Rush Limbaugh shows him bragging how he manipulates his listener’s emotions for profit. Right-wingers insist they are not being duped.” There’s just one | Read More »
Is AOL’s Political Machine Really Trying to “Sort The Spin”?
Editor’s Note: The action component has been removed. AOL’s Political Machine is going to cross-post a portion of this response instead. — Erick. Okay, one more on this. That AOL guy is now claiming I am defending a “racist” song. In this kid’s world, it is racist. But as has been stated repeatedly, the song is not a racist song (note to Chip Saltsman: that | Read More »
Some Moron Thinks He Knows What He’s Writing About
Some guy named Tommy Christopher (is he the AOL writer who pretended to be John King to get on a call with John McCain so he could harass McCain?) has looked at my post on Chip Saltsman and come away convinced he must obfuscate the facts. He quotes me thusly: The columnist, an African-American, came up with the term and Rush Limbaugh had Paul Shanklin | Read More »
Chip Saltsman Screws Up. Mike Duncan Overreacts.
To recap: Chip Saltsman sent out a CD of songs to RNC members for Christmas. One of the songs was “Barack the Magic Negro,” a parody featured on Rush Limbaugh. Apparently Mike Duncan does not listen to Rush Limbaugh, nor do the members of the MSM, all of whom are piling on Saltsman. As CNN notes The song, set to the tune of the 1960s | Read More »
Colin Powell Has Probably Never Listened to Rush Limbaugh
Colin Powell has opened his mouth and let out some hate: “Can we continue to listen to Rush Limbaugh?” Powell asked. “Is this really the kind of party that we want to be when these kinds of spokespersons seem to appeal to our lesser instincts rather than our better instincts?” First, we should note that Powell equates Limbaugh to the Republican Party when Rush, like | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh Loves Jim Marshall. At Least Jim Wants You To Think So.
Jim Marshall (D-GA) is running a very tough race against General Rick Goddard in Georgia’s 8th Congressional District. Goddard opposed the bailout. Marshall vote for it. Goddard is the Republican in this Republican leaning district. Marshall is the Democrat. Now on radio, Marshall is running an ad highlighting his NRA endorsement. Also in the ad, Marshall cites Joe Scarborough’s praise for Marshall’s stances in opposition | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Old Politics of Lies
Obama has accused McCain of dishonesty. He says pro-life activists are lying about his record. He says the GOP is manufacturing phony outrage. And yet Obama is telling a massive whopper to Latino audiences in spanish. Does he really think by not using English we’d ignore it? Obama is trying to tie John McCain to Rush Limbaugh. Clearly he does not keep up with the | Read More »
Just how awesome is the Palin pick? Rush Limbaugh is now calling John McCain “John McBrilliant”.
The Rush Limbaugh Open Thread

Rush Limbaugh: Murderer
It’s my sad duty today to announce that Rush Limbaugh has been arrested for murder. Earlier today he gunned down Arkansas Democrat Party Chairman Bill Gwantney in a tragic shooting. Well, Rush did not do it actually, but that has not stopped the left from blaming him. There was a tragedy in Arkansas today. Bill Gwantney, a former state senator and the current DPA Chair | Read More »
