Before: Limbaugh calls the Dixie Chicks "Saddam's Angels" for having the temerity to express displeasure at the president.

Now: Limbaugh states "dissent is patritotic." Thinks it's exactly what the country and political process needs.

Give me a farking break

It wasn't just Rush, either, all talk radio poo flingers were piling on McCain and they have NEVER liked him, ever.

Limbaugh's got too much Dominican boy baby batter in his brain, and it's making him delusional.

I actually used to listen to this guy on and off in the '90s. While he was unabashedly conservative, I could relate to his grand theme that big, unaccountable government is not a good thing and there needs to be constant oversight, transparency and vigilance. The second GWB took office, he made it absolutely crystal clear that he is a company (party) man through and through by abandoning all things conservative to (in his own words) "carry water" for the Republican administration.

I listen now very rarely, just so I know what the faithful will be repeating verbatim in politics threads.

: "If I really wanted to torpedo McCain, I would endorse him," Limbaugh said on his radio show. "Because that would send the independents and liberals who are going to vote for him running away faster than anything."

Meanwhile, back in reality, the "liberal and independent" McCain swing voters began their die-off back in 2000. By 2004, they were officially endangered. The once-revered "maverick" grew into an old, swayback grazer that would do anything for anybody with a carrot.

This is why all those "OMG RIGHT WING RADIO HOSTS HATE MCCAIN!!!111!!11" stories that came out a while back didn't impress me. These douchebags won't, in the end, cross the Republican Party. Rush doesn't want to take any position that jeopardizes his ability to eat as much Oxy as he wants and go to the Dominican Republic to get boys.

I love how Limbaugh believes he knows exactly what those who don't like him are thinking.
 
2008-02-13 11:57:14 AM
What more evidence does one need to see that Limbaugh is nothing more than an entertainer? And as such, taking anything he says seriously is moronic?

He wants attention and listeners. He doesn't care what potential impact he may have on politics.

Are we also supposed to believe that the people booing McCain at CPAC and Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter and all the dittoheads were all playing the same "game"?

Someone should tell the dittoheads and freepers. They're not sure what to think now.

If somebody can actually post a clip of Limbaugh saying he'll vote Dem to spite McCain, I'll vote Dem myself.

Everyone knew that Limbaugh would eventually line up behind McCain. I mean, they are pretty much both the epitome of suck; how could they not get together?

Ruch doesn't like McCain or like the fact that there isn't a real pro-business conservative in the hunt. But there is at least a chance he will pander to the conservative base is his party to get elected. Something is better than nothing. Sometimes you just have to roll with what cards you are delt.

Limbaugh is a moran. Let's all ignore him and hope he goes away...
 
2008-02-13 12:15:02 PM
Rush and the other conservatards are going to go exactly where the money is. If Rush had to give Obama a BJ to guarentee stellar sales of his next lame ass book, he would do it.

These people are mentally beating you off for money. It's time you recognize...

What happened is it is starting to look like if he were to not support McCain, then he would have to vote for a Black Man. And good Conservatives just don't do that.

1. Secretly plan to support a candidate by publicly 'attacking' him.
2. Publicly state that this is what you are doing.
3. ???????

So you were supporting him because your vitriol against him was his greatest asset but now you're taking his greatest asset away to support him...

Oh great, now I've gone cross-eyed!

"Who may be in this whole kit and caboodle, this who(le) shebang, the most valuable asset McCain has?"

"Me."


Self aggrandise much? Sheesh.

Somebody put a cork in Ozymandias over there, he's done.

The right has splintered into it's component parts. The religious reich got as close to national power as they will ever get again and they will not come out to vote for McCain the way they would fer a Huckabee/Brownback type. The War Monger wing will come out to support McCain but it won't be enuff. The remaining folk on the right who still think they are fiscal conservatives are not gonna be too excited about paying for another 10,000 years in Iraq. In the face of all this division and buried under the weight of his own bad judgement Rush Limbaugh has become well neigh irrelevant and maybe a little embarrassing too.

Rush's days of playing Kingmaker and having politicians have to kow-tow to him have gone the way of the dodo. Rush apparently hasn't got the memo yet. Who wants to tell him?

/Thinking of sending a singing gorrilla-gram to Rush to make this point.

here's the whole article

McCain's Biggest Asset: Rush? (new window)

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT


RUSH: Let's go right to the audio sound bites. In fact, let's start with number two. No, let's go ahead and start with number one. This is PMSNBC, the Morning Joe show today, with Joe Scarborough. Mika Brzezinski, who is the daughter of Zbigniew Brzezinski, the former national security advisor during the disastrous Carter years, she is talking with the correspondent David Gregory about how an endorsement of McCain by me would sink McCain.

BRZEZINSKI: I'm reading Richard Cohen this morning. He says that "nothing commends McCain more than his enemies. The fact that Rush Limbaugh hates him is a pretty good reason by itself to vote for McCain. It's not always possible to judge a man by his friends, but his enemies will always tell you something." So the question I guess for John McCain moving forward, is how does he sort of bridge that divide with the base, and does he really need to when it's these kind of blabbermouths who are leading the way. Give me some insight as to why this is so important.

GREGORY: He needs the conservative base behind him, particularly because of the enthusiasm you see on the Democratic side. So come November, he's gotta get conservatives to come out and vote, and, yeah, the argument goes that as long -- you know, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, they're against McCain. It's only going to help him with his own base of those independent voters that will be so important in November. No question about that; that he's gotta maintain that core of independent voters for him.

RUSH: One of the things that has amazed me throughout all of this, ladies and gentlemen, is the narrow mindedness, the narrow focus of people in the Drive-Bys. Mika Brzezinski was reading from Richard Cohen today in the Washington Post. Now, Cohen said, look, the worst thing that could happen to McCain is if Limbaugh endorsed him because then the independents would run for the hills and the Democrats who are going to vote for McCain would run for the hills. It's too late, Cohen. I said that myself yesterday. If I really wanted to torpedo McCain, I would endorse him, because that would send the independents and liberals that are going to vote for him running away faster than anything. What people don't realize is I'm doing McCain the biggest favor that could be done for him by staying out of this. If I endorsed him thoroughly, with passion, that would end the independents and moderates, because they so despise me, and they so hate me.


Now, if I were a member of the Drive-By Media, I would dig deeper than the surface here. They're all obsessed -- and, by the way, they all want to talk to me -- TIME Magazine, New York Times, New York Times magazine, you would think I'm running for office. We've got a list of requests of people that want to talk to me, and they all want to talk about the same thing: Why do you not like McCain? What in the world is it with McCain? How come you don't like McCain? That's basically the theme. Now, if I were one of these guys, I would go a little bit further. Now, this may be where they have their problem. If I were a Drive-By looking at all this, the first thing I'd say is, "Limbaugh is not stupid." But they may not go there. They may think I am. But, do you think it might intrigue them -- look at what Cohen wrote. They think I'm against McCain. They think I'm trying to torpedo McCain. They think I'm trying to savage McCain. They think I have an animus toward McCain. And yet, am I not doing the best thing in the world for his candidacy based on the way he structured it? He wants independents; he wants Democrats; he wants people from across the aisle joining our party to give him his electoral majority, correct? Who is helping him accomplish that? Me.

It is I, El Rushbo, the all-knowing, all-caring, all-feeling, all-sensing, all-concerned, all-everything El Rushbo. So couldn't it be said, if somebody wanted to in an enterprising way, go there, couldn't it be said that I am secretly supporting Senator McCain because I secretly do want him to win, but I know full well that if I come out and endorse him, he's cooked, because I'm going to tell you this, if I were to endorse McCain, the conservatives in this audience who are opposed to him are not going to join him because I say so. This is another area where the Drive-Bys totally don't get it. They think everybody out there is receiving marching orders. If I endorsed McCain today, next week, August, if I came out and actually endorsed McCain, that's when my audience would have trouble with me. So I'm sitting here, I'm covering two bases at the same time, both beneficial to me, and the Drive-Bys are stuck on this, and even after explaining this to them -- Kit, they're going to call you now, "Does Limbaugh say, does he really mean that this is how he's supporting McCain?" And your answer is going to be, "I don't know. You heard him say what I said. He put it out there as something for you guys to think about. You guys are enterprising journalists. He's encouraging you to get away from the one track mind that you're on and write something different from all of your other so-called colleagues."

Look, we all know that McCain wants to win. He's very proud of this. Richard Cohen, independents, moderates, no wonder the left is excited for McCain. They want to vote for him. Some of them do, and McCain wants to win that way. And if McCain wins, who loses? Obama or Hillary. Is that not good for our side for those guys to lose? So who may be, in this whole kit and caboodle, in this whole shebang, who may be the most valuable asset McCain has? Me.

Don't worry, his supporters will totally forget about this the same way they forgot about how he wasn't going to carry water for the GOP anymore following the 2006 elections.

Limbaugh fans must suffer from perpetual short-term memory loss.

I expect James Dobson to do the same thing soon.
 
2008-02-13 12:51:53 PM
pretty sure he doesn't really mean this. he is just being stupid here. if this were true, it would be admitting there aren't many conservative voters out there and that he isn't all that influential (since not many people do what he tells them to do).
 
2008-02-13 12:54:15 PM
The Republicans are nearly done falling into line behind McCain. This summer we'll get to hear about how McCain is really the 2nd coming of St. Reagan.
 
2008-02-13 12:57:07 PM
Dear Lord, I have never seen such idiocy.

The arch-Conservative complaints about McCain are simply a way to bolster their position for the VP slot. A Neo will be appointed the VP, and the Republicans will all be singing together in one big happy tent.

Not one of them, Bible basher or otherwise will ever ever ever ever ever EVER farking EVER vote for Obama or Clinton.

What is wrong with you people?

I cannot believe the Democrats are going to lose this election, but they are going to.

Dobson can eat a bowlful of hooker cocks. I'd rather give Rush a hug than listed anything Dobson has to say.
 
2008-02-13 12:58:16 PM
It's called playing both sides of the fence. He is realizing that he had very little influence on the current selection so he is hoping to recover some ground lost to salvage a relationship with the obvious republican nominee. Maybe he is finally realizing that the morons who voted the chimp into office are not going to come out to vote this time.
