Rush Limbaugh And Michael Steele Officially At WAR

News

For the past couple of months, Democrats have successfully promoted the notion that Rush Limbaugh, a flatulent sea donkey with a popular radio show for losers, was in fact the "real" head of the Republican party. This assertion has the advantage of being at least sort of true; Limbaugh's show gets some frighteningly insane number of listeners, and he's powerful enough that actual Republican politicians who cross him end uppublicly castrated before live audiences of bloodthirsty Limbaugh fans.


But it appears the worm is turning! First Eric Cantor goes on George Stephanopoulos's show and says that he does not agree with every single thing Rush Limbaugh has ever said or will say in the future. A full 24 hours later, Eric Cantor is still alive.

And now the compulsively quotable Michael Steele, the guy whom one might argue is the head of the Republican party in the sense that he is the frigging CHAIRMAN OF THE RNC, has decided that he too shall speak ill of the Limbaugh, and damn the consequences.

STEELE: So let’s put it into context here. Let’s put it into context here. Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer. Rush Limbaugh, his whole thing is entertainment. Yes, it’s incendiary. Yes, it’s ugly.

!!!!

So now all your snarky media outlets get to write about how the party is "tearing itself apart," and how there's a bitter internecine war raging between the new dorky hip-hop wing of the party and the fat angry yokel wing of the party.

Eventually Rush Limbaugh can just start his own party, and between the Paultards and the Dittoheads, there will be nothing left of the Republicans but Michael Steele, Arlen Specter, and a juice box.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
