    Unfrigging believable?

    The republican party of today no longer exists as a believable political entity.

    Where are the Boners, Kantors, and Waddle Chins?

    this is great. republicans are moving farther to the right wing. they have no problem slamming and criticizing their own presidential candiate john mccain.....but they kneel down on bended knee and grovel for forgiveness from a pill popping, three time divorced, obese, rightwing talk radio clown.

    rush is the defacto leader of the GOP. Does it get any better than this? :confused:

    That's a good thing, because for too long now we've had republicans acting like democrats, and if Rush can whip the republican party back to it's true conservative roots, which it needs, then we'll be far better off. When the conservative block is united behind one candidate, that candidate wins. We know that. The republican party better get that through their collective skull and stand WITH Rush.

    You guys spend a lot of time whining about a party you keep claiming has no chance ever again. I wonder why that is?

    I generally like Steele, but he was drifting too far into the celebrity moment of his new post as head of the RNC, instead of getting down to the difficult task of returning the party to its fiscal conservative roots.

    Rush called him on it.

    Good for him.

    Harsh words from the WIC (Winer in Chief):lol:

    Retired, it's not wining, it's gloating and hope that your party as it stands today will implode and come out the other side as a real Republican party like it was in the past. It would be nice to have two parties that could work together for the good of the country and not have one that tells its members to automatically oppose everything the current president does. No, the dems did not say that with Bush.

    You haven't seen any one on the left bowing to Randy Rhodes who is a hell of a lot smarter and better read than Oxy Contin Boy.:lol:

    Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer," Steele said during an interview Saturday night with CNN's D.L. Hughley. He then referred to the right-wing hero's popular radio talk show as "incendiary" and "ugly."

    And when Hughley referred to Limbaugh as the "de facto leader of the Republican Party," a narrative that gleeful Democrats have been promoting for weeks, Steele bristled.

    "No he's not," he said. "I'm the de facto leader of the Republican Party."

    During his program Monday, Limbaugh, who used a nearly 1 1/2-hour speech before conservative activists in Washington Saturday to assert that Republicans should want Obama to fail, blasted back.

    "Michael Steele — you are head of the RNC; you are not head of the Republican Party," said Limbaugh, who also said that "something happened" to Steele.

    "He got airtime on this program," Limbaugh said. "Now I'm just an 'entertainer,' and now I'm 'ugly' and my program is 'incendiary.' "

    Steele told Politico Monday that he called after Limbaugh's show to let the radio host know he had meant no offense.

    "I went back at that tape and I realized words that I said weren't what I was thinking," Steele said. "It was one of those things where I thinking I was saying one thing, and it came out differently. What I was trying to say was a lot of people ... want to make Rush the scapegoat, the bogeyman, and he's not."

    Steele's comments prompted Gov. Tim Kaine, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, to issue a statement that characterized Steele's "reversal" as proof that "Limbaugh is the leading force behind the Republican Party, its politics, and its obstruction of President Obama's agenda in Washington."
