Some thoughts on the Limbaugh affair
CNN recently ran an analysis on the Limbaugh affair as to whether he was a distraction or the de facto leader of the Republican Party. It is interesting to note that Politico.com ran an excellent story the same day detailing how political operatives- notably James Carville and Paul Begala- along with White House political hacks Rahm Emmanuel and David Axelrod seized upon this controversy.

Thank you, James Carville
Details are spilling out over the concerted effort by White House staffers and the team of James Carville, Stan Greenberg and Paul Begala to elevate Rush Limbaugh to be the visible symbol of the GOP. Their polling showed that overall, Americans do not care so much for Rush and as such, he would make an excellent symbol to replace that of George Bush and Dick Cheney.

Rush Pulls the “Leader” Card to Force Dems Hand
I was wondering when and if Rush Limbaugh would come up with a strategy to deal with the increasing push against him from the left. Today he did, and what a great approach he came up with! They call him the leader of the Republicans. They call him brash. They call him arrogant. Today his strategy takes all those accusations and wraps them up in | Read More »
It was good enough for Adolph
Just like Hitler… there is nothing like having a common enemy. To Hitler it was the Jews. He rallied the propaganda to attack and blame it all on the Jews and he bound together a nation based on a common enemy. Today, Obama is doing the same thing with Limbaugh. Drudge carries the headline as http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0309/19596.html “WHITE HOUSE PLOTS LIMBAUGH COVERAGE; TEAM OBAMA TARGETS PRIVATE CITIZEN.” | Read More »
Nobody Wants America to Fail – Just Bad Ideas About What to Do With America
I thought I would way in on the big topic of the week which is Rush Limbaugh’s comments about wanting the President to fail. That is what Rush said, but at the same time it isn’t. Technically what was said is more along the lines that he feels that what the President wants to do is a bad idea, and he wants him to fail | Read More »
DNC Limbaugh “Apology” Web Site; where’s the RNC’s?
Background: This whole DNC/Liberal Media conversation about Limbaugh saying he wanted Obama to fail is just more evidence that the Dems are nervous about the strength a “Libaughesque” leader would mean for the Republican party. They fear real leadership in that it would mean an end to their surreptitious plans to remake the US into a socialist union of states. The above article is just | Read More »
Limbaugh, Leftist Media, and elected Democrats
So over the past few days we’ve witnessed a number of Republican politicians being peppered with questions about Rush and his role in the GOP. What I want to know is: Why aren’t there any interviews with elected Democrats about Keith Olbermann’s craziness and, in this case, outrageous racism…watch this shocker: Can you imagine if someone at Fox News said that “White Males” like Howard | Read More »
An American Reality Show: Sick
The political landscape and the process of governance in America have become so bastardized they now resemble a sick, staged reality show. The cast of characters seem expertly chosen for their degree of disfunction, not their degree of distinction. Tune in to this week’s episode and you find Rush Limbaugh as the titular head of the Republican Party. Or not. Enter Michael Steele, who is | Read More »
Limbaugh Falls Short at CPAC Frat Party
I wanted to reach through the TV screen and pull Rush back onto the stage at CPAC ‘09, “you haven’t finished Rush! You haven’t given them any specific direction or strategy. Only generalizations. Certainly you provided no shortage of profound truth, to be sure, but you must get back up there and tell them what they did wrong resulting in 11/7/06 and 11/4/08. Give them | Read More »
Patrick Rufini Over At “The New Right” Makes The Case – Rush The NYT’s…
I have to agree with Patrick Rufini here, it is time to engage the left on our terms… Let me first state that I don’t particularly care who writes for the New York Times op-ed page, and think all the handwringing about who will replace Bill Kristol is a collosal waste of time for conservatives. I long ago stopped reading the editorial pages, and rely | Read More »
Obama, Soros and Bill Ayers versus Rush Limbaugh. Economic Teach-ins and Hollywood style campaigns headed toward a house near you.
Army of Obama: People of America – do not listen to Limbaugh! Step aside and accept our rule.
Limbaugh: America – stand firm and do not allow this Porkulus plan to pass.
Army of Obama: Step aside Rushites. For Soros, the god of the left, has so much money that he can block out the sun with an advertising campaign against you!
Leonidis Limbaugh: Then we shall fight in the shade.

The Obama-Limbaugh Bipartisan Stimulus Plan of 2009
If you missed it today, in the true spirit of “Bi-Partisanship”, Rush Limbaugh, even after The One told us all we “…need to quit listening to radio king Rush Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats and the new administration.” offered a real solution to our current financial mess that takes into account the fact that we did not all, in fact, vote | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh: “We’re screwed!”
Anyone who has listened to the conservative icon for any length of time knows that he prides himself on delivering a message that is positive, uplifting and optimistic. And from the beginning he has evinced a confidence in the American people that he maintains the left does not have (they believe the American public is dumb and needs a liberal elite to make decisions for | Read More »
GM’s Advertising on Conservative Talk Radio — Purposeful?
I’m an avid listener of talk radio. And I was heartened last year when I heard Limbaugh say that GM was becoming a sponsor of his show. “Great,” I thought. “I like seeing major advertisers buying into talk radio.” And my happiness grew when I learned that GM was also buying spots on Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham’s shows. But all of this talk about | Read More »
Odd Topic: Is Rush Limbaugh.com down? I am getting 404 Errors
I have not been able to get to Rush’s site all morning/day. Is anyone else having this problem? Just curious.
