It is really hard to tell smug, winning, not-losing-his-mind Rush Limbaugh from Rush Limbaugh who sees a trainwreck coming and is desperate to do something, anything about it. But, judging by Limbaugh yesterday, he knows his team is losing and it's putting him over the edge.

He started out with the DNC's recognition that having 65,000 people out in the rain tomorrow night might not be a good idea. But of course that wasn't how Limbaugh discussed it. Listen:

The, ahem, highlights: The decision was made yesterday or the day before to move the speech indoors because the knew they wouldn't be able to fill, get this, "Black Panther Stadium." (Carolina Panthers fans are going to be thrilled with that one.) Also, Clint Eastwood's RNC "empty chair" routine totally shows how America is laughing at Barack Obama.

He really is losing his grip on reality. But that was just a warm-up for this, when he really gets his racist on, attacking Michelle Obama's DNC speech.

Why were Obama's shoes a half-size too small? We're supposed to conclude from that that the guy was so poor and had so little and was just barely surviving and [...] his most prized possession was a coffee table from a garbage dumpster. And his shoes, that were a half-size too small. [...] Obama was working for a law firm when he started dating Michelle. He wasn't wearing shoes a half-size too small when he was dating Michelle Obama. He was working at a law firm. [...] Obama did not grow up in poverty. His grandmother, the typical, white woman, worked in a bank.

Don't give me this down with the struggle business. He wasn't down with the struggle. That's the whole point. You go back to 2008, the Democrats were ringing their hands because he wasn't authentically black. [...] He wasn't down with the struggle. He doesn't have slave blood. [...]

Republicans are losing and Limbaugh knows it. He's only going to be getting worse, more racist, and more desperate over the next two months.

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.
