Tis A Foul Wind That Blows
At the risk of beating this issue to death, I had to return to it just one more time. I promise to find other things to blog about from now on. On the Today Show this morning, Matt Lauer interviewed Rahm Emanuel, Obama's Chief of Staff and a question comes to mind. Why on earth do Emanuel, Obama and other Democratic leaders bother to respond to Rush Limbaugh? Don't they realize that to do so acknowledges his existence? Everyone knows he's an over paid, over stuffed, obnoxious gas bag. So what if the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) featured him as a headline speaker. That's simply a measure of their desperation. Why didn't they offer up someone with a proven record of conservatism who can put forth their ideas and principles without being hateful and hostile? Some people who come to mind are George Will, Mary Matalin or even Laura Ingraham. No, they had to go out and find 'distinguished' party leaders like completely disgraced Newt Gingrich, has-been Mitt Romney, wingnut Ron Paul and blowhard Limbaugh! No wonder the Republican Party is such mess. Look who they're offering up as their inspired leaders. But wait! As noted in the last blog, here comes their white knight-Bobby Jindal. Good luck with that!
