  •  Rush Limbaugh, heart of the Republican Party (9+ / 0-)

    That Rush Limbaugh is the spiritual leader of the Republican Party is a fact that should be repeated constantly, so that it will provoke a denial that is clearly dishonest.  The proof of this unpleasant truth occurred when Rush made some disgusting racial comments in 2009 which led Michael Steele, chairman of the RNC, to distance the party from Rush, describing him an “entertainer” whose show can be “incendiary.” He was forced to retract this mild criticism the very next day.  He is not just "entertaining" Republicans with his provocative menu of hate, contempt, and dishonest,  he is their moral guru. Rush truly represents the Republican Party base, and that is worth discussing, especially since the candidates for President have veered so sharply to the right.

    •  Steele was on Tweety's show (0+ / 0-)

      last night and he made another try at "this is entertainment".  

      When someone is impatient and says, "I haven't got all day," I always wonder, How can that be? How can you not have all day? George Carlin
