Rush to judgment

While Carl is emailing Republican congress-critters to ask them if they really consider Rush Limbaugh to be the de facto leader of their party, it is amusing to look back on our homegrown R’s own sad history of right-wing talk sycophancy.  Indeed, after seizing control of the Washington State House during the Gingrich-inspired red tide of 1994, one of the first things the new Republican majority did was appease their god by sponsoring House Resolution 4684 in his honor:

WHEREAS, Rush Limbaugh has exercised dignity, decency, integrity, and wisdom in exposing the foibles of political correctness and other peculiar doctrines held dear by radical fringe wacko elitist kook nutcakes; and

WHEREAS, Rush Limbaugh has spent his life serving humanity as “the epitome of morality and virtue” while on the “cutting edge of societal evolution” performing “libosuction” on “young skulls full of mush” and firing lethal shots with devastating aim at the whole spectrum of liberal ideologies;

[…] NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the state of Washington honor Rush Limbaugh for the dedicated service that characterizes his life’s work, for the outstanding example of diligence, integrity, and excellence he has set for others, and for the hope that his future endeavors will bring him even greater levels of satisfaction and success…

Yup… after being swept to power by an angry electorate, this was what 30 Republican co-sponsors determined to be one of their top legislative priorities.  The subsequent collapse of the GOP over the next decade or so starts to make sense in hindsight.

Read the whole resolution.  It’s just as amusing as the excerpt.

    On the other hand, we have a economy in shambles high unemployment, Stock market going to lowest levels in years and obana said yesterday I don’t care about the up and downs of the market. Tell that to the millions of follow American who lost 401ks.
    So what is Obamas high priority Go after a private citizen of America MR. Rush Limbaugh.
    Too bad he can’t spend this energy thoughout his government to kill bin laden. Or correct his mess of the economy.

    # 1: Obama’s not spending any time worrying about Rush Limbaugh, much less “going after him”. We, on the other hand, are getting quite a bit of fun out of it, at the expense of the Limbaugh Party generally.

    Of course, the Republicans could have avoided this by standing up to Limbaough and relegating him to the fring of their party. Instead, Republican leadership has to make their foray onto his radio show, genuflect and kiss his ring, heartedly apologize for any deviations from Rush Orthodoxy, and shudder in fear as he considers whether to accept their apology, or excommunicate them from “his” party.

    This morning I heard that according to polls, Rush’s “favorable” rating was in the low teens. I don’t know the source of the poll, but I’m looking for it. If true, his ratings would be something on par with Dick Cheney.

    Theodore Roosevelt said this during WWI which still applies during the economic crisis times we are facing today:


    “To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”

    The Obama-maniacs have tried to create an environment where criticism of Obama is either racist…or if that doesn’t work, unpatriotic.
    They are inviting much more intense criticism.
    Where are all the ACLU supporters??
    Why aren’t they praising Rush for speaking up against the person in power??
    The ACLU’s silence is telling.

    Answer: He hasn’t. Why? Because he wouldn’t be in control of the “dump” button to hang up on the person that exposes his fraudulent ideas. Has Rush EVER been on a cable news show other than Faux, where he knows he won’t be challenged? No! For the above mentioned reasons.

    The White House’s secret strategy to destroy Rush Limbaugh. So secret that no one told any of us.

    John Aravosis (DC) · 3/04/2009 04:13:00 PM ET · Link

    Our corporate media is in a tizzy today, accusing the White House of coordinating the entire media blow up over Rush Limbaugh this past week. Well, that’s an interesting bit of fantasy. Let me dissect this for our friends in the media who are a tad too stupid and gullible for our own good.

    1. So you mean, Barack Obama is behind GOP chair Michael Steele exploding the Limbaugh story in the news this past week by calling Limbaugh an ugly and incendiary entertainer. Wow, he is powerful, that Obama. Even controlling the head of the entire Republican party, and getting him to say something characteristically stupid. How does Obama do it?

    2. And Barack Obama is behind Limbaugh publicly responding to Steele, suggesting that no one should donate to the Republican party, and suggesting that maybe Steele should just kill himself. Again, damn powerful, that all-knowing Oz.

    3. Barack Obama is the reason the media, including FOX News, jumped on the Limbaugh-Steele feud and rode it for days. Please explain this one to me. How does it work? A reporter says to his editor, “Hey, did you see the head of the Republican party savaged Rush Limbaugh, right as he was speaking at the largest gathering of conservatives in the country, as their number one speaker, and then Limbaugh responded by suggesting that the head of the party kill himself.” Your editor says, “not a story.” You say, “Barack Obama?” Your editor says, “Oh my God, print it! But make sure you don’t mention anything about Obama in the story because Obama is really the one behind the entire story!”

    4. And apparently Barack Obama made Rush Limbaugh say, a good month ago, that he hopes Obama fails at trying to save the economy. You’ll recall that this is the reason Rush has been in the news the past month. Obama is so all powerful, he somehow forced Limbaugh to say something stupid. Uh huh. Yeah, that was certainly an unexpected first for Limbaugh, saying something ugly and incendiary. Clearly, Obama was behind it all.

    I suppose that Barack Obama was also behind my co-blogger Joe Sudbay and me, suggesting to a number of our non-administration political friends this past week, in private, that we all ought to really jump on this Limbaugh story. We had this discussion many days before Rahm mentioned Limbaugh on the Sunday shows. (And let’s not forget, Rahm mentioned Limbaugh AFTER Limbaugh and Steele started publicly savaging each other.) So was Obama secretly sending microwaves into our brains to get us to push the story?

    Joe and I talk to this White House – a heck of a lot more than we talked to the last one. We’ve even had conference calls in the past few weeks with OMB Director Orszag and with VP Biden’s top economic adviser. And during all these calls and communications no one once mentioned Rush Limbaugh. It just strikes me as a bit odd that the White House was supposedly behind the Limbaugh kerfuffle, yet no one shared this grand plan with the blogosphere, which is the perfect medium for exploding such a story. Odd isn’t it?

    And one final point.

    Do you get what the Republicans are really doing here? In addition to their usual tactic of blaming us for things that they actually do, this is another trick they love to use. Blaming us for things that aren’t bad things at all. Meaning, what the GOP, with the collusion of the media, is really saying is this: “Barack Obama is telling people the truth about Rush Limbaugh being kind of an idiot.” And the media’s response? “You mean, Obama told people the truth about what Rush Limbaugh said? Oh my God, how evil of the White House – stop the presses!” Next the media, incessantly pesters the administration, at press conferences, in made up stories, demanding the White House admit that someone there was behind an effort to simply reiterate what Rush Limbaugh actually said, as if somehow Limbaugh isn’t a bad guy for saying the things he says, but everyone else is bad for spreading the news about what Limbaugh actually said. And the ultimate irony of this strategy, some of the very people Limbaugh attacked are TO BLAME for what Limbaugh said. Priceless.

    So there you have it. Barack Obama single-handedly forced Michael Steele, the head of the Republican party, and Rush Limbaugh, the Republican party’s star mouthpiece, to publicly savage each other, then he forced all of the major media to cover the story, even though it had nothing to do with Obama.

    Maybe he truly is the magic negro.

    These are trying times. So I appreciate the right wing media’s efforts to keep me rolling in laughs. I happened over to Drudge’s site to see “Enemies List: White House Plots Limbaugh Coverage”. That links through to Jonathan Martin’s piece in The Politico. And Michael Scherer picks it up in Time in a sort of broad-ranging homage to the greatness of David Broder.

    It seems the Obama White House is mobilizing the vast power of the federal government to make Rush really popular among GOP nutball dead-enders, then coax various Republican officials to criticize Rush and then compel these same officials to issue craven and humiliating recantations of those criticisms.

    The right’s capacity for gonzo victimhood really knows no end. Let’s focus on the realities here. Most people don’t like Rush Limbaugh. But for whatever reason he remains a redeemer-like figure for the rump of the Republican party. Politically that’s a very bad place for the GOP to be. They’re unable to criticize him. And their need to kowtow to him marginalizes them. But enough of the structural ins and outs of it. Fundamentally, it’s bad for Republicans because Rush is really where the GOP is right now. That’s all that’s left. And most Americans really don’t like that.

    Beat the Rush …

    The seeds were planted in October after Democracy Corps, the Democratic polling company run by Carville and Greenberg, included Limbaugh’s name in a survey and found that many Americans just don’t like him.

    “His positives for voters under 40 was 11 percent,” Carville recalled with a degree of amazement, alluding to a question about whether voters had a positive or negative view of the talk show host.

    Paul Begala, a close friend of Carville, Greenberg and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, said they found Limbaugh’s overall ratings were even lower than the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s controversial former pastor, and William Ayers, the domestic terrorist and Chicago resident who Republicans sought to tie to Obama during the campaign.

    -via Politico

    Less popular than the Religious Wright? Than Bill Ayers? That means Limbaugh is less popular than cooties and herpes.

    Puddy, Cynical, Stamn, Troll … we are so very screwed, my brothers. The sooner we face the fact that their big fat idiot (Michael Moore) is on a roll while our big fat idiot (Rush) is on the ropes and on the floor, the sooner we can try to salvage something from the ruins.

    Obama is Teflon. His lies (no lobbyists; no earmarks; slash the deficit) don’t stick and his organic fertilizer doesn’t stink. He sheds the consequences of deceit but has reverse Teflon for voters and groupies: they cling to him.

    But our Rush, alas, repels voters and attracts dirt. He’s a pig in shit. He gives good headache and a pretty good speech, but if he’s the face of our party, it’s a losing face. We are truly punk’d.

    Of course, the whole idea of the Republicans claiming “victimhood” over the Limbaugh controversey is that they want to intimidate the MSM from covering anything which makes Limbaugh look bad. As soon as such a story breaks (usually because Limbaugh has opened his mouth and himself said something incredibly stupid), when called upon for comment some Wingnut spokes-person will then accuse the reporter, and his network, of colluding with the White House to make Limbaugh look bad.

    That’s been one of the more frequently used tools in the Republican kit: intimidate the mainstream media into doing nothing more than parroting Republican press releases, while at the same time using Fox News to make a blatantly un-fair and un-balanced flank attack.

    Fortunately, they’ve used it too many times. It doesn’t work so well any more.

    Anything remotely silly said by Limbaugh or Coulter or Robertsom or RIP Falwell ends up on page one, above the fold, even if words and contexts have to be twisted and shredded to get them there.

    That’s my major problem with Rush as a spokesman for the real America: Too many people are too inattentive to his incessant nattering to get his convoluted contexts. Then he spends days or weeks trying to explain or explain away what may or may not have been trying to say. It’s a deadly crap/content ratio, and it’s killing conservatism, at least the part of conservatism that wasn’t killed by compassionate conservative Bush.

    Here’s the rest of the story:

    “The ideological Organizations Project, as the IRS project was known, investigated Left-wing groups as well, but its main focus, as historian John Andres has written, ‘remained on right-wing organizations.’ Eventually, before the project ended in 1967, the IRS removed the tax-exempt status from seven Right-wing organizations. Not only that, but through audits and the threat of audits, the IRS and the Kennedy administration blatantly attacked and harassed ideological organizations. Not since the Roosevelt administration’s efforts to harass America First had government tried to harass legitimate political and idiological groups.”

    LIMBAUGH AT CPAC
    Monday, March 02, 2009 7:07 AM

    President Obama and Rush Limbaugh do not agree on much, but they share at least one thing: Both wish to see Rush anointed as the leader of the Republican party. Here’s Rahm Emanuel on Face the Nation yesterday: “the voice and the intellectual force and energy behind the Republican party.”

    What a great endorsement for Rush! (And we know Rush is fond of compliments – listen to his loving account in his CPAC speech of the birthday lunch given him by President Bush just before Inauguration Day.)

    But what about the rest of the party? Here’s the duel that Obama and Limbaugh are jointly arranging:

    On the one side, the president of the United States: soft-spoken and conciliatory, never angry, always invoking the recession and its victims. This president invokes the language of “responsibility,” and in his own life seems to epitomize that ideal: He is physically honed and disciplined, his worst vice an occasional cigarette. He is at the same time an apparently devoted husband and father. Unsurprisingly, women voters trust and admire him.

    And for the leader of the Republicans? A man who is aggressive and bombastic, cutting and sarcastic, who dismisses the concerned citizens in network news focus groups as “losers.” With his private plane and his cigars, his history of drug dependency and his personal bulk, not to mention his tangled marital history, Rush is a walking stereotype of self-indulgence – exactly the image that Barack Obama most wants to affix to our philosophy and our party. And we’re cooperating! Those images of crowds of CPACers cheering Rush’s every rancorous word – we’ll be seeing them rebroadcast for a long time.

    Rush knows what he is doing. The worse conservatives do, the more important Rush becomes as leader of the ardent remnant. The better conservatives succeed, the more we become a broad national governing coalition, the more Rush will be sidelined.

    But do the rest of us understand what we are doing to ourselves by accepting this leadership? Rush is to the Republicanism of the 2000s what Jesse Jackson was to the Democratic party in the 1980s. He plays an important role in our coalition, and of course he and his supporters have to be treated with respect. But he cannot be allowed to be the public face of the enterprise – and we have to find ways of assuring the public that he is just one Republican voice among many, and very far from the most important.

    Except for the last part.

    Puddy can put together a logical argument and is a tep above the other trolls. The problem with Puddy is that he just reads and repeats from the right wing sites and does not even realize that most of what he is citing does not even SAY what he thinks it does.

    Lazy and sloppy with the facts and failing to use logic properly, Puddy can muster an argument – but then retreats, changes the topic or claims the reference is too liberal (while he uses the same references if they support his case). Refusal to admit when wrong (like still claiming that that Paulson is a democrat, hahaha). Everything needs to fit in to Puddy’s neat little republican theorires – even when the republican theories (free market uber alles) have been shown to be completely wrong.

    In the meantime, little whiners like “truth” who constantly have to challenge others to “prove” their putative manhood…well, I believe god would put that under the category of ego-obsessed and insecure.

    NotRight, Susan Estrich has some words for you…

    “But he is not the leader of the Republican Party. He may be the guru; he is certainly a powerful voice. But his job is not to write the opposing bill, to decide when to compromise and when not to, to participate in the process of making the sausage. He doesn’t need to reach out to the middle, the way politicians do. Calling him “the voice and the intellectual force and energy behind the Republican Party,” as Rahm Emanuel did, only gets him more attention and more power, and it makes it more difficult, not less, for the Republicans, whose votes the president ultimately needs, to defy his naysaying.”

    Dear KLOWNS–
    The Conservative message is being discussed.
    Your White House KLOWNS can be thanked for that. Pretty interesting that elected officials like Obama and his henchmen would get into a debate with a guy holding them accountable.

    Appears to me Obama and his ilk are very THIN-SKINNED.
    If they can’t take the heat, they really ought to get out of the kitchen cuz it’s about to get hotter.

    Obama has broken 6 of his major campaign promises.

    The Conservatives have fully engaged Obama.
    Now Obama (who started it) is afraid to debate Rush??
    This is too funny.

    Hey, folks are hurtin’ and they desperately want Obama to help them out of their misery. It’s natural to turn to the government rather than gut it out….that’s what Obama has been counting on in order to forward his Socialist Agenda.

    Remember what the 6-time Socialist Party candidate said,

    “The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

    NotRight has some brass cojones calling people out. Let’s remind the HA peeps the story about NotRight

    being lazy and sloppy with the facts

    Recently Diddled Lover wrote in http://horsesass.org/?p=13500#comment-902002 (because the House is where spending bills MUST begin constitutionally)

    NotRight and others rant about TARP1 was written by Henry Paulson. Yet when Puddy explains the US Constitution and how the House and Senate fell down on the TARP1 bill, you drop the rant in that thread and restart it in another. And you complain about me.

    When you rant on the Iraq War and the incorrect arguments used by Bush, when Puddy reminds you of the words spoken by CIA Chief Leon Panetta, you drop the rant in that thread and restart it in another. And you complain about me.

    When you rant on the Iraq War and the no bid contracts, when Puddy reminds you of The Shaw Group and Richard C. Blum (Mr Dianne Feinstein) and his Perini and URS no bid contracts, and how he screwed the pooch on Walter Reed Medical Center, you drop the rant in that thread and restart it in another. And you complain about me.

    When you rant on the 2000 election and tell everyone how the election was stolen by the SCOTUS, and Puddy reminds you of Al Gorebasms own words, how he screwed the pooch and not ask for a full state recount, how he tried to suppress the military vote because he thought it would break 70/30 against him when it broke 58/42, how he tried to disenfranchise Seminole and Martin counties because their ballots arrived in the mail late, and the NY Times and Miami Herald saying Gore lost on the hanging chads issue, you drop the rant in that thread and restart it in another. And you complain about me.

    So when you leave your favorite rants in the toilet, we can move on.

    I was writing earlier about how every stock that Cynical ever touted subsequently tanked. If one had shorted (I can explain that to you, Cynical) every stock when Cynical said “buy”, one would have made a lot of money. JRCC went from $70 to $4. BOOM from $40 to $10. WFC from $30 to $12. Just last week Cynical was saying it was time to buy Wells Fargo at $13. Where is it today? $9 and change. Yup, when Cynical says buy, short the damn thing and you win every time.
