    For telling his listeners to vote for Hillary in the primaries in order to drag out the democratic process. That did two things:

    1. Made Obama a sharper candidate ready fora general election and

    2. swelled the apparent number of 'hillary voters' which played into McCain's choice to puick a woman as his VP.

    If Limbaugh hadn't pushed for his listeners to vote Hillary, Texas and Indiana could have gone to Obama in the primaries, Obama would have it wrapped up and been a less strong candidate and this whole PUMA/hillary voter thing would have never gotten the legs it did, and McCain would have picked Pawlenty or Jindal. McCain would have won.

    A lovely non sequitur... truly.

    Now how exactly does it follow that because Limbaugh encouraged his listeners to vote for Hillary, necessarily dragging out the primaries, exposing Hussein to substantially more scrutiny than he would otherwise have experienced, that Hussein would have been 'less strong'?

    ROFLMNAO... you people are absolute imbeciles.

    Palin strengthened McCain's doomed candidacy... this notion that it did otherwise is absolutely BASELESS. Moderates were NOT and ARE NEVER the issue... Moderates will ALWAYS go with the popular choice. The Media turned Hussein into a pop-con and there was no contest to that iconic status by McCain UNTIL PALIN came aboard and even THEN McCain spent every opportunity reinforcing Hussein's iconic status by informing those to whom he spoke of what a great and honorable man Hussein is... which is first absolutely false and secondly lends credence to the notions being advanced by the opposition, which McCain largely endorsed.

    Well, maybe, but as long as blaming everyone from Palin to Jack Ryan is sort of on people's minds, why not throw Rush into the mix.

    It does feel a bit hillary-esque, though, I admit, when she blamed on her loss on everything from the advantage of being black to the failure of the media to report on Edwards' affair earlier.

    Rushes audience is shrinking because he's been lying to people for years and the evidence of his Neo-Republican has manifested recently so obviously that even the dumbest of the dumb realized what total bullshit he's been selling.

    2006. Has he really changed since then, or was he just throwing a tantrum?

    Limbaugh and other "entertainers" like him serve to poison true conservatism in the minds of many people. Where is it written that having conservative values must be accompanied by anti-intellectualism, shameless half-truths and outrights distortions about those with opposing opinions, and endless and absurd attacks against political opponents for essentially each and every move they make (or are fantasized to have made). As a conservative, I'm sorry to see my basic beliefs being associated with such idiocy. Making matters worse of course is that it is played out on our airwaves, hour after hour, day after day. Limbaugh, Hannity, and all you others, please go away. You've done enough to smear true conservatives by prentending to adopt conservative principals. We need the voices of thinking conservatives in the public consciousness, not your juvenile and meaningless nonsense.
