Limbaugh, GOP Just Comically Walking Into Every Trap
How do you get what's left of the Republican Party to destroy itself? It sure helps to have some self-obsessed drug-addicted sociopath like Rush Limbaugh as "leader" of the doomed wingnuts! At some point in January, the same Obama strategists who outmaneuvered the Clinton Machine and American Racism noticed that an AM radio jackass beloved by angry white guys in service trucks -- who else listens to AM radio, during the workday? -- was publicly wishing failure upon both the new Obama Administration and the U.S. Economy. Maybe this bloated oil bag could bring down the entire GOP!
Two months later, the plan seems to be working flawlessly. The Obama team says something like, "Hey, Republicans, do you agree with your party leader, Rush Limbaugh, this smarmy sex creep, that America should fail?" And then whatever hapless GOP factotum, such as party chairman Michael Steele, says something reasonable like, "Uh, hell no, and Limbaugh's an ugly sack of rat shit," and then Limbaugh bellows on the AM, and then the hapless GOP factotum immediately kisses Rush's tacky pinky ring, and then David Plouffe puts a column in theWashington Post that he probably wrote six weeks ago, when he and David Axelrod were coming up with this whole funny scheme, while playing chess or something:
But instead of rebuking the radio personality or charting their own course, Republican leaders in Washington are paralyzed with fear of crossing their leader. Less than 24 hours after committing the unforgivable sin of criticizing Limbaugh, RNC Chairman Michael Steele felt compelled to publicly apologize. He was not the first and will certainly not be the last.
Former GOP congressman Joe Scarborough used hisMorning Joeprogram this morning to just beat the hell out of Steele for being a complete pussy. It was almost --almost-- funny enough to justify watching Joe Scarborough.
Finally, the very image of Limbaugh -- a monstrous, sweating, greedy, fat-fingered Viagra-gobbling sex-tourist Jabba the Hutt figure of vulgarity and revulsion -- is, officially, the image of the Republican party. The late-night network comedy talk shows are just loving it:
And now the Democrats have this hilarious "apologize to Rush" form letter. Democrats doing somethinghilarious? Change really has come to America ....
