As Icebergslim notes in her popular diary, Obama recently educated Republicans on the wisdom of ignoring Rush Limbaugh. Yesterday, Limpaugh responded by spewing the following verbal diarrhea (click link at your own risk) from his sullied pie hole:

There are two things going on here. One prong of the Great Unifier's plan is to isolate elected Republicans from their voters and supporters by making the argument about me and not about his plan. He is hoping that these Republicans will also publicly denounce me and thus marginalize me. And who knows? Are ideological and philosophical ties enough to keep the GOP loyal to their voters? Meanwhile, the effort to foist all blame for this mess on the private sector continues unabated when most of the blame for this current debacle can be laid at the feet of the Congress and a couple of former presidents. And there is a strategic reason for this.

Actually, Obama is trying to make the argument about his plan, and his words were a good faith effort to herd the sheep-like Republicans away from the Rush Limbaughs of the world who desire to lead them over a cliff.

The impotent blowhard goes on to don a tin-foil hat and accuse Obama of putting politics and a potential Democrat permajority before the country's economic well-being. According to Limpbaugh's drug-crazed logic, Obama seeks to manipulate the electorate by luring them into an economic plan brimming with poisons such as job creation and economic relief for the middle class and poor.

Limbaugh also asserts that Obama's plan threatens the future of tax cuts, and, amazingly, he defends Merrill Lynch's 1.2 million dollar redecoration of an executive's suite in the same inebriated breath. As a lifelong, loyal democrat and a fervent supporter of the current president, I urge Rush Limbaugh to keep up the good work:

Obama was angry that Merrill Lynch used $1.2 million of TARP money to remodel an executive suite. Excuse me, but didn't Merrill have to hire a decorator and contractor? Didn't they have to buy the new furnishings? What's the difference in that and Merrill loaning that money to a decorator, contractor and goods supplier to remodel Warren Buffet's office? Either way, stimulus in the private sector occurs.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
