Factual Accuracy and McSame Syndrome
We stand today deep into the silly season of the 2008 presidential election; most of us have our dander up, and naturally some Obama partisans like Josh Marshall and Joe Klein have floated off on clouds of rhetorical overkill in an effort to push the idea that their opponent is somehow running an unusually dishonest campaign. Even aside from the partisanship, you have to be | Read More »
What place does racism have in this race?
Once in a while, we all would probably admit that we find some in our midst on the right who does not seem to agree on the priorities in our country, our government, or this campaign. Today I ran into a sickening example of racism from what I assume is the right, and I thought it deserved stamping out here.Have you already heard about the | 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 »
Well, Senator Obama, at least you don’t have to blame *yourself* for the bad timing.
I gotta admit, Senator Obama – or, more accurately, whoever came up with this for you – this was a pretty slick trap that you set. You go out and create an anti-McCain ad that’s a: exceptionally dishonest; b: insulting to both him and Rush Limbaugh; c: has the potential to remind the rest of the GOP about it’s internal immigration dispute; and d: – | Read More »
Limbaugh Open Thread Wednesday
Anybody wanna play? I’ll start this puppy off:Yet again revising and extending remarks, Obama regarding the Palin lipstick “lipstick on a pig” issue, calls it “yet another made up controversy” by the Republicans.As opposed to, say, Trig being Bristol’s daughter, imaginary book burnings, Bristol’s actual pregnancy leading the headlines for a week. Nah, THOSE are legitimate news. YOU are the victim of ‘made-up controversies’.Kinda like | Read More »
Southern Baptists get a bad rap.
I’m not much on blogging, but when I hear what I’ve been hearing about Southern Baptists, I need to step up and clear things up. First of all, yes, I am a Southern Baptist. The problems I have are the following: First of all, Rush Limbaugh. Don’t mis-understand me here, I am a huge fan of Rush, I subscribe to his website and listen to | Read More »
Just how awesome is the Palin pick? Rush Limbaugh is now calling John McCain “John McBrilliant”.
The Great Reconciler: Sarah Palin Brings Rush Limbaugh and John McCain Closer
I do not usually have the time or opportunity to listen to conservative talk radio, (Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage (?!)etc.) But I do skim through their transcripts on-line, and know that in general they were highly skeptical, disappointed, and perhaps even halfway angry about John McCain being the candidate.Lately they seem much more enthusiastic about John McCain right now. So what | Read More »
It Will Be Hillary.
Rush Limbaugh is all excited that Hillary wasn’t even vetted for VP (he says, according the AP). But the All-seeing MahaRushi missed one: they didn’t have to vet her specifically. They’ve been doing opposition research on her for months!With Obama tanking in the polls, he will either pick Hillary as his running mate, or he will not be elected.

NY Paper: July’s Killing of Liberals in Tennessee Church is Rush Limbaugh’s Fault
Rush Limbaugh killed some church goers in Tennessee last July. That is the message from a Newsday.com columnist for a local New York newspaper chain. Now, I’ve listened to Rush Limbaugh many times. Because of my schedule, I cannot listen every day, so certainly I have not heard every word the man has ever uttered, but I am sure that you won’t be able to | Read More »
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 was | Read More »

On Rush Limbaugh
After the 1992 election, when Democrats won the Presidency and kept control of both chambers of Congress, Republicans were lost, disconsolate and desperately in search of some institution to grab onto. Some rock upon which the GOP could be re-established.That rock was found on Rush Limbaugh’s radio program.It’s hard to remember a time when Limbaugh hasn’t influenced the debate in one way or another. He | Read More »
