Telling the public that Limbaugh is the new face of the GOP is nothing more than a left wing, media assisted (yet again) effort to smear the Republican party in the minds of the all important unaffiliated voters.
Nice to see that civetcat has picked up his marching orders from the Dear Leader and is even repeating on this board that Rush is the "new leader of the GOP". Civetcat likes the word "truthiness" , this Rush situation is truthiness at its best. Most conservatives know that Rush is irrelevant beyond entertainment, but because Rush spoke at CPAC (replayed ad nauseum on the tv, notice the parallel between them repeatedly showing Tina Fey's impersonation of Sarah Palin before people even really knew Sarah Palin) it gives the element of truth that Rush is now somehow a Republican leader.
Top Democrats believe they have struck political gold by depicting Rush Limbaugh as the new face of the Republican Party, a full-scale effort first hatched by some of the most familiar names in politics and now being guided in part from inside the White House.
Rush is nothing more than a dog and pony show in the universe of conservative politics. God knows liberals have more than their fair share of freaks and circus clowns that make up the motley crew of liberal politics.
