Rush


You know, far be it from me to give the Republican Party any advice. I doubt that they would take it from a radical leftist socialist like me. But, since I have been known to give unwanted advice anyway (just ask some of my friends), here it is and it's very simple. You do NOT want Rush Limbaugh listed as the head of the Republican Party! Not if you want to be taken seriously! He is an entertainer and not a very good one at that. Take him for what he is and move on.

Like Sarah Palin, I really don't wish to fill up space on my blog discussing this man another day. It's just that I found it laughable yesterday when I turned to three TV stations (CNN, MSNBC, FOX News) and I heard pundits referring to Rush Limbaugh, the radio talk show host and leading windbag, as the "Head of the Republican Party". I thought to myself, they couldn't be serious, could they? If people are ignoring them now and seeing them as a joke, they will lose further credibility if he is seen as the symbolic head of the conservative movement and the GOP.

I find this as silly as saying that Steve Harvey, Michael Baisden, Al Sharpton, or me for that matter, could be considered the symbolic leader of the Democratic Party. There are people who have spent four or more years in college and have worked in government and politics for many long, hard hours who are better suited for that title than any radio host, television personality, or blogger even. Do we all have opinions? Yes. Does our opinion influence a wide spectrum of people? Yes again. But, that's as far as it goes.



I was watching D.L. Hughley's show on CNN a few nights ago and he had Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele (who is also the first African-American to hold this post), on his show. He said that Rush Limbaugh was the head of the Republican Party and Michael Steele corrected him by saying... "No, he is not. He is an entertainer. I am the head of the Republican Party". The next day, Rush Limbaugh gave Michael Steele a tongue lashing on his radio show and between then and now, Michael Steele has backed up on his statement and issued some type of apology to Rush Limbaugh. Apology for what???

Not that I care... I really don't... but, it appears to me that a lot of Republicans fear this guy. A radio talk show host! He has an allegedly popular radio show and a lot of listeners (although, I suspect a lot less than he used to have). Still, I think that his listeners are a small minority that can no longer sway an election. Obviously, they can't because The House, The Senate, and The Big Seat are controlled by Democrats right now and it's already been proven that President Obama really doesn't need much (if any) Republican support to get any legislation passed.

What the Republicans should be doing is addressing alternative ways to get this country back on track economically. In other words, they should be talking about what the disenfranchised man on the street is talking about... employment, education, tax relief, the infra-structure, etc. Oh, but that is already being done by the other party and you guys never really were any good at connecting with what is really important.

Not too many people are worried about abortion, gay marriage, flag burning, or having their guns snatched away from them right now. It's going to be mighty hard to convince any guys who have lost their jobs in a factory or a man who just lost his farm that the rich fat cats shouldn't have to pay more taxes or that they should keep their jobs when they are responsible for the mess we are in. That's going to be a pretty hard sell at this point and 65% of the American people agree with me on that across the board, Rush... Blacks, Whites, Latinos, Asians, etc. To paraphrase Jay-Z ,"Who you with?"

Rush is basically preaching to the choir... what's left of the choir he already had because I don't see his choir growing. I don't understand why these Republican guys are so afraid of him. He can't hurt them or help them at this point. But, I digress... that is their mess. I just thought I'd pass along a little unwanted advice to them.

This is why I'm the Maverick of All Bloggers... I even try to help my ideological adversaries from time to time. Now, what other blogger do you know will take time out to do that? Ain't I somethin' else?

They are afraid of him because he has a big mouth. People with big mouths can spread a whole lot of rumors, fear, lies and false images in a short amount of time. He is also unstable. We must exercise caution around unstable people, because, well, you never know what angle they are gonna come from. You never know what's going to come out of their mouth next... We spend a whole lotta time coddling unstable people!

Great Post..I agree, Rush isn't worth another day of blog posting.
We are just upping his self created
importance more by continuing to blog and talk about him. That's of course what he wants.

Captain Jack said...

What a deplorable man!!!He disgusts
me.

Beautifully.Conjured.Up said...

A vast majority of republicans are afraid of him because they're conservative cowards. Rush is turning them into mute puppets. Not to mention, Michael is a token conservative coward...the worse one.

Blu Jewel said...

Terry, over at The Cheap Seats had a similar post up. This is the bullshyt that people without conscious and good presence of mind thrive on. Poor things.

Love to live; live to love!

Sorry Keith, but I couldn't disagree with you more. I know longer trust people who "have worked in government and politics for many long, hard hours" I trust educated people with military experience, that have a streetwise perspective of life in the real world not the political world. I trust people that will lend a few dollars to an old formerly pompous acquaintance like you did a few weeks ago. I trust people who state their opinion AT THE DOOR, even if I think the roar of Leo is mightier than the rams horn. I trust people I learn from on a daily basis although I may not take the time to say thanks daily. Sorry Keith I disagree. I'll take an educated, family loving, blogger, over Hush (I wish he would) any day.

Thanks again for the enlightenment.
SLC
