Rush Limbaugh can do no wrong

I'm sure by now you've either read the David Frum expose on Rush Limbaugh in this week's Newsweek magazine, or read critiques of the article itself. Basically it lambasts Limbaugh and the Republican party for bowing down to the "big fat idiot" (to quote Al Franken) instead of realizing that by sanctifying Rush at the party leader is in fact destroying the party at it's roots.

SHUT UP DAVID FRUM! Just kidding. The article is amazing and beautifully written and researched. As a Conservative, Frum is fed up with the right wing ideology and racist, sexist crap that constantly spews forth from Limbaugh's mouth. Crap that is drunk up by his millions of not-so-bright listeners who have claimed him as the new leader of the Republican party. Don't believe me that Republicans espouse racism? Read the words right from Limbaugh's mouth.

Rush, the man that created and popularized the word Feminazis.

The guy who said that Kennedy would be dead by the time Health Care Reform happens in this country. Mr Sensitive. Mr Caring. Mr Asshole.

What I find continually amazing is that the Republicans currently in power (and that doesn't include Mr Limbaugh, who is an entertainer, a radio "personality" and an admitted drug addict, womanizer, and all around foul human excrement) don't seem to understand that by continuing to scream about tax cuts and all their other failed policies, they are not only not making sense, but they're pushing the centrists away from their party in droves. I just want to scream at them, "You LOST the election for a reason. Think about it. Make some changes. Try to learn from your mistakes and misdeeds." But like Frum, I see the attachment to the past, the adherence to failed policies that got us into the mess this country is in, and the failure to back away from Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly, Coulter, Malkin, and the other loud-mouthed spokespersons of their cult as the deathknell of the party in it's current form. Oh well, no great loss.

The fact is, for this avowed liberal, I'm enjoying watching the minority party (and doesn't that feel good?) implode. Racism, sexism, stupidity, and an blind adherance to failed policies and caustic financial beliefs have been the hallmarks of this party for a long time. Ronald Reagan wouldn't even recognize the party he recreated.

As we all know, you can't be an asshole forever. You can't be mean-spirited forever. You can't spew hatred forever. Sooner or later, you're seen for what you are. Republican party leaders should be learning their lessons just about now. And for those that don't, good luck in the next election. Your time has passed. The country isn't interested in propping up big business at the expense of the populace. The country is tired of bad educational policies, failed health care policies, and a refusal of government to be of the people, by the people, and FOR the people.

All the people. White, black, brown, and purple. Gay and straight. Muslim, Jewish, Athiest and Christian. Fat and thin. Short and tall. Smart and dumb. Mentally ill and mentally healthy. Disabled and able-bodied. Poor, middle class and rich. ALL the people. Even the idiots that like Rush Limbaugh.
