Yes, Rush. Out of touch indeed.

If there's one thing Rush Limbaugh knows, it's "out of touch". The light reflected from his micropenis has been out of touch with his retina for some time.

Rush is everything that's wrong with the Republican party. When I originally saw his show (It aired after the  Morton Downey, Jr show)... there was no way I could have forseen this guy's rise in prominence. I mean he was and always will be a hack. Surely the future of the American right wing has something better than this.

I sincerely hope so. Once, the voice of the GOP was William F. Buckley, Jr; now, it's Rush Limbaugh.

To be fair, he's very much in touch with his audience, which is also out of touch with mainstream society.

Republicans are not narrow minded," Limbaugh said on his radio show today.

Someone should get Sandra Fluke to craft a reply on this one...

ye gods.  of course the GOP is narrow minded!  their shared mythology and ignorance is one of the key factors keeping the Republican party together right now.  take that collection of lies and myths away, broaden the horizons a bit and let in some fresh air and the Republican party will implode into a fiery mess of bitter recriminations, factional infighting and declarations of heresy.  they HAVE to remain narrow minded.  if they don't, they'll collapse.

Please proceed, Limbaugh.

"I'm sorry, but we're not disrespectful to anybody. Look at what these focus groups have got these poor guys believing. Look at this, [GOP critics say,] 'Our party is narrow minded.' Republicans are not narrow minded," Limbaugh said on his radio show today. "Out of touch? Not out of touch. We are in touch with the founding of this country. We are in touch with the greatness in this country and its people."

This was, what, a 2 minute segment?

I listened to him faithfully in the 90s. Wouldn't touch him now with someone else's 10 foot pole. Yet, how in the world does he keep coming up with 3 hours of content every single day?

And you know what?  I hope Rush keeps believing this delusion.  I don't WANT him to change.  I want him and his buddies to keep believing that THEIR way is right, that they've done nothing wrong.  that 'low information voters' and 'lying libruls' cheated to win elections.  the more they dig in their heels the better it is for the rest of us.

This makes about as much sense as Rubio's "We don't need new ideas. The idea is called America, and it still works."

Limbaugh's remarks came after RNC chair Reince Priebus released the committee's 97-page "autopsy report," which argues that the GOP is seen as the party of "stuffy old men" and needs to change its ways.

Whether the GOP is actually the party of "stuffy old men" can be debated, though I know which side I come down on on that issue.  However, its image is a party of stuffy old men.  That is hard to debate in any serious manner.  Preibus was apparently saying they need to change our image.  Rush sees nothing wrong with their image?

Their narrow mindedness keeps things pure. Eventually, it'll devolve into a game I've dubbed "No True Retarded Scotsman" that ends with two people both declaring themselves at the most conservative person on the planet and then promptly declaring the other a liberal.

My grandfather keeps a fully restored 1934 Reince-Priebus in his garage under a tarp. He brought it back with him from Europe after WWII (he served in Italy under Marshal Law and General Motors during the battle of Parmesan). He only drives it for one hour every Sunday to keep the engine in good working order. He once taught me how to change the grease on the rear axle; the Reince-Priebus was one of the first FF cars out there, but the weight distribution wasn't quite right since it used a chassis designed for an FR layout so the rear axle needed to be greased by hand to keep it from seizing. Anyway, it's a really beautiful car and he said he'd leave it to me in his will, but we don't really talk much anymore since he kind of had a falling-out with my parents, so I dunno. I really hope it doesn't go to my cousins, they have no appreciation for it and they'll probably just sell it off, and I know that would break my grandfather's heart.

Ideological purists will never jump ship.  There is a segment of the population that is nearly genetically programmed to hate, fear or mistrust anything the government does, especially if that means providing equally for all citizens.  The only hope is apathy, because they will never vote for the other side.
 
2013-03-18 07:15:25 PM  
Rush can say all he wants, but it doesn't matter to what the RNC is trying to do. Perception equals reality and the perception of the Republican Party is that they're disrespectful of alternate viewpoints and out of touch in regards to what is going on in the real world (meaning the non-Fox Noise world). Rush is just proving that point with his own comments. Until that changes, the GOP will continue to fail but considering how much they were willing to be outright lied to by GOP boosters, Rush, Hannity, Dick Morris, Fox Noise, etc. in last year's election; that's not going to happen any time soon.

I still remember the first time I heard him on the radio, back in the 'for those of you in Rio Linda' and 'Caller Abortion' days.

I drank the koolaid, right up until the Beirut bombings.

"We are in touch with the IMAGINED greatness in this country and its people."

This country lost the right to call itself great long ago.  Very good maybe.

Being the best smelling piece of shiat in a pile of shiat may be an accomplishment, but not much of one.

The concept of America as this shining example of the greatness of a nation is an ideal, not a fact.

I sincerely hope so. Once, the voice of the GOP was William F. Buckley, Jr; now, it's Rush Limbaugh.


Yeah, things were so much better with Buckley as the rational voice of the GOP.

"The axiom on which many of the arguments supporting the original version of the Civil Rights bill were based was Universal Suffrage. Everyone in America is entitled to the vote, period. No right is prior to that, no obligation subordinate to it; from this premise all else proceeds.


That, of course, is demagogy. Twenty-year-olds do not generally have the vote, and it is not seriously argued that the difference between 20 and 21-year-olds is the difference between slavery and freedom. The residents of the District of Columbia do not vote: and the population of D.C. increases by geometric proportion. Millions who have the vote do not care to exercise it; millions who have it do not know how to exercise it and do not care to learn. The great majority of the Negroes of the South who do not vote do not care to vote, and would not know for what to vote if they could. Overwhelming numbers of White people in the South do not vote. Universal suffrage is not the beginning of wisdom or the beginning of freedom.  Reasonable limitations upon the vote are not exclusively the recommendations of tyrants or oligarchists (was Jefferson either?). The problem in the South is not how to get the vote for the Negro, but how to equip the Negro-and a great many Whites-to cast an enlightened and responsible vote."

No kidding. If they started taking steps to appeal to and connect with the younger generation, and succeeding at it, then I'd start getting nervous.

Fortunately that's not too likely.

I found the problem.
Page 3 and Page 4
"we conducted a survey of 2000 republican hispanic voters"
"more than 36,000 individuals participated in our survey"

NO where did I see anything about an independent survey or poll.
NO where did I see the GOP talking to independents or democratic voters.
This might come as a surprise and a SHOCK to some people, but if you want to get OTHER people to vote for you, well, you have to TALK to the people who did not vote for you.

Talking to yourself is one of the signs of madness.

I still find it fascinating how deluded and crazy Limbaugh has become.  Gods know I don't want to see him get his shiat together but...I have to wonder at the psychology behind such adamant refusal to accept reality.  lets face it - Romney lost by a landslide.  the GOP lost several key races around the country, and the party is facing demographic shifts, as well being largely unable to appeal to most younger voters.  Republicans embrace a theocratic agenda that is at odds with what most of the country wants to see in a political party, along with a corporate agenda that is pretty open about serving the interests of an uncaring elite few at the expense of 90% of this country.  Republican pundits such as limbaugh are despised, mocked and derided.  instant fact checking via internet sources have rendered much of the GOP propaganda machine unable to compete in a marketplace of ideas.  the Republican party is in very real danger of becoming obsolete.

All of this is blatantly obvious.  the facts are there, right in front of everyone.  there isn't any way to deny the issues facing the Republican party.  they HAVE to confront these problems or the GOP as a whole will continue their slide into obscurity.  Limbaugh and his fellow pundits have an opportunity to actually be leaders.  they could use their positions to help forge a new alliance among key conservatives and pull their party back from the brink...but they refuse to do it.  in fact, they double down on the crazy talk and engage in wild paranoid fantasies instead of honest debate about the troubles they face.  I gotta admit - I find it all fascinating to watch.
