So, let me get this straight, Michael Steele, the Chairman of the Republican National Committee says that Rush Limbaugh is not the “de-facto” head of the Republican Party, says that he is, and then says that Rush is only a comedian, a mere “entertainer” whose show is “incendiary” and “ugly.” But wait, as they say on infomercials, “That’s not all!” The next day Steele apologized to Limbaugh.
Mr. Steele, this is exactly why I have changed my registration from Republican to Democrat after 29 years. Rush IS a “mere entertainer” and his so-called comedy IS not only “incendiary” and “ugly”, but IS also divisive and racist. Your apology has placed Rush squarely as the “de-facto” head of the GOP. You have placed the court jester on the party’s throne, and you have made yourself the court jester.
So let’s recap, we have the likes of Sarah Palin and Bobby Jindal being hailed as the future of the GOP, and Rush Limbaugh as the “de-facto” head of the party. Yeah, good luck with that.
