LIMBAUGH: The bash-Rush -- the pass key for RINO Republicans to get glowing media treatment -- works for Colin Powell, it worked for Tom Ridge, and it's now working for John Cornyn, a person from -- I'm probably going to embarrass him by saying this, but I was asked by friends to do a fundraiser for Senator Cornyn when he was running, and I did -- flew to Texas and I did it. Yesterday on NPR, John Cornyn was asked this question: "We've heard Rush Limbaugh. We've heard the Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich calling Sonia Sotomayor a racist, saying that she should withdraw." I didn't say that, Newt did, but that's the question. "What do you make of the rhetoric that's tumbling out of these people these days, Senator Cornyn?"
CORNYN [audio clip]: I think it's terrible. This is not the tone that any of us want to set when it comes to performing our constitutional abilities of advice and consent. Neither one of these men are elected Republican officials. I just don't think it's appropriate. I certainly don't endorse it. I think it's wrong.
LIMBAUGH: All right, now we'll talk about this in detail as the program unfolds here. But we can not forget something here, ladies and gentlemen -- that is that the Democrat Party was and is vicious.
It's not clear why the Democratic Party is vicious because John Cornyn thinks Rush Limbaugh's hate speech is terrible, but it apparently makes sense in Rush's fevered mind. Who cares. Let's just enjoy the fact that the titular head of the Republican Party continues to help tear the GOP apart.
