Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Rush Gush

By the way, has everyone else noted the Republicans falling all over themselves to pay homage to Rush Limbaugh this week.  Bell Curve first noted the start of this and it has only increased since he posted.

It's hilarious. Think Progress and Talking Points Memo (links in the sidebar) have been all over it.

David Plouffe wrote an editorial about this today (Minority Leader Limbaugh) So I wonder if the brouhaha is also part of some Democratic strategy to ultimately topple Limbaugh or make him the face of the Republican party. In other words, there is more going on here than meets the eye.

It's pretty obvious that the Democrats are taking advantage of Limbaugh's desire to be all over the media by giving him all the airtime he wants. Republicans may love him (they do) but they know that independent voters don't. He's just a mean, nasty drug addict who has already said "I want President Obama to fail." That is exactly the box Democrats want to put the GOP in - that they either vote with the Dems or they too "want President Obama to fail." The American people overwhelmingly want Obama to succeed, even those who disagree with some policies, because success for Obama means a revived economy.

The GOP is falling for it because they can't help themselves. Limbaugh wants the media spotlight and won't give it up. They can't denounce Limbaugh without angering their base or giving him more airtime.

Sort of like Moveon.org did with the stupid Betray-US ad in 2007.

I think it's an indication of the enormity of the power vacuum in the GOP. Schadenfreude is a wonderful thing! :-)

The democracts are devious enough to make the Limbaugh thing happen on purpose. But as LTG says, the can take advantage of gifts.
