Quote of the Day

“Some would like to think that! I don’t!”

–Gov. Rell, when asked if she thinks Rush Limbaugh is the voice of the Republican Party. Rell also said that Rush “…speaks for himself and a few selected people.”

It’s on!

UPDATE: The DCCC has jumped on the everyone-needs-to-apologize-to-Rush bandwagon. This is actually pretty funny. I didn’t know they had it in them.

  1. I turned off Rush back in college (early 90s). He’s unnecessarily divisive. Always strikes me as being more about ratings than philosophy.

  2. he’s the voice of the neo-cons, the tax cut and spend to further some dark hidden agenda neo-cons…

  3. “Some would like to think that! I don’t!”

    Agreed, somehow, somewhat, some worrisome, Mr. Limbaugh is the other face of MoveOn.org. – anyone who may think this country meant for the extreme is dead wrong!

  4. Dumb questions elicit dumb answers. Limbaugh, whose name former Gov. John Rowland used to studiously miss-pronounce, would be the first to deny that he was he voice of the Republican Party. His latest speaking engagement was before the Conservative Union, a conservative organization. Here in the Northeast, listening to him is a little bit like wandering into a bordello and tasting the fruit — Really, sorry, I was heading for the barbershop!

    Even Colin McEnroe listened to him regularly. Barbershop, you know. Here in the land of Cotton Mather, we hug close top our chests our guilty pleasures. But at least McEnroe was willing to admit Limbaugh’s allure: He’s funny and entertaining.

    So, it may be time for the rest of us – including Rell – to man-up. Limbaugh’s good; no Bill Buckley, but then no one is Bill Buckley. Republicans have to lear to stop running away from their futures. The antidote to Obamaville runs through Limbaugh. And everyone knows it.

  5. I don’t listed to him, but a lot of people do. Or more technically, the advertisers that pay top dollar to have advertisements on his show are convinced that a lot of people listed to his show (or to be even more technical, the advertisers believe a lot of people that can be influenced to purchase the products or services being advertised listen to Rush). If the advertisers became convinced that not many advertising-influenceable people were listening to Rush, they’d stop paying so much for ads, and then radio stations would make less money, and then they’d drop Rush and broadcast something else.

  6. listed = listen. man, it’s early…

    What’s funny is that Al Franken, the guy who positively owned the loud-mouthed shitheads of the Rabid Right, is soon to be in the US Senate. That must drive O’Lielly nuts.

    And Limbaugh is a horse’s ass. Rooting against the American economy is as bad as rooting against the troops.

  8. is as bad as rooting against the troops.

    I thought you liked Kos?

  9. AndersonScooper

    ACR, Markos Moulitsas is something you’ll never be, (despite your carrying on about generations of patriotic H-men).

    That’s right, Kos is a veteran.

    And last I checked, a mercenary working for Blackwater is no longer a “troop”.

  10. That’s right, Kos is a veteran.

    As was Benedict Arnold!

    And…just like good old Ben, Kos has rooted for the wrong team from day one.

    So Anderson, just what branch did you serve in?

    Didn’t?

    Then never ever bring it up again.
    At least I volunteered (*during*, not after Vietnam) and my asthma isn’t some sort of “life style” choice I willingly made.

  11. AndersonScooper

    ACR–

    Your double standard is revolting.

    You want credit for almost having served, (and you smoke a hell of a lot for someone with asthma).

    Yet you’re willing to call Kos, the veteran, a traitor because he didn’t cry his heart out about the death of some Blackwater mercenaries?

    If you had any honor and personal integrity you’d quit smearing Kos, and apologize.

  12. I can’t believe a guy on the Radio is so scary to the left wing fanatics in this country. Grow up.
    In fact Hillary Clinton, Begala and Carville were paranoid about what others said about them years ago.

    or this..

    Headline on Drudge today is about how to CNN employess Begala and Carville have been planning on a Rush attack for about a year now.

    Democrats can’t take criticism & won’t debate the issue without calling people names.
    So were is all the outrage with the George Soros funded attack groups like Move-On who claimed that they now own the Democrat Party.
    Has Rush funded the RNC? Has Rush funded political campaigns? Like the Move-On crowd? Has he started 501c groups to help seek and destroy peoples lives like Hillary Clinton and her thugs did when they hired Anthony Pellicano the Hollywood P.I. to harrass and intimidate people who don’t agree with them?
    This is purely Saul Alinsky’s Rule #12 from “Rules for Radicals” – Pick the Target, Freeze it, Personnalize it, and Polarize it.
    Rush is being used so as to distract from Obama’s inexperience in economics and how this country emerged as the greatest country in the world.

  13. AS,
    Can you tell me of one instance where any economy or Government has spent as much as Obama wants to and has become a fruitful country.
    Or one that you want to live in?

    Just face it, Obama is a borderline Reparationist. And he is blatant about it.

    The “girations” in the market? Obama is a dunce on economic issues.

    Wallstreet has no confidence it what Obama has offered and Obama could care less. He better be a fast learner.

  14. I know, I know Scooper Pooper, Obama “inherited” this economy.
    But did he really? I guess the Democrat controlled Congress had nothing to do with it?

  15. Democrats can’t take criticism & won’t debate the issue without calling people names.

    I know, I know Scooper Pooper, Obama “inherited” this economy.

    Well! And then:

    This is purely Saul Alinsky’s Rule #12 from “Rules for Radicals” – Pick the Target, Freeze it, Personnalize it, and Polarize it.

    But preceded by:

    So were is all the outrage with the George Soros funded attack groups like Move-On who claimed that they now own the Democrat Party.

    Has Rush funded the RNC? Has Rush funded political campaigns? Like the Move-On crowd? Has he started 501c groups to help seek and destroy peoples lives like Hillary Clinton and her thugs did when they hired Anthony Pellicano the Hollywood P.I. to harrass and intimidate people who don’t agree with them?

    The irony, and the crazy, flowed like wine.

  16. I feel nothing over the death of merceneries . They aren’t in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them.”
    Markos Moulitsas / Thu Apr 1st, 2004

    These are the four men killed Scooper; we’ll be sure to forward your sentiments to their families for you.

    On March 31, 2004, four men working for Blackwater USA as security guards

    Wesley Batalona
    A native of Hawaii, Batalona was career Army and a former Ranger sergeant with a reputation for being tough. Like the others, his motive for signing on for security work in Iraq was mixed: a yearning for some adventure, a bit of self-challenge, and the money. He wanted to help out his father who was facing foreclosure on his house. Batalona joined the Army in 1974 and took part in the 1989 invasion of Panama, the first Gulf War and the 1993 humanitarian mission to Somalia. After 20 years he retired and ended up taking a hotel night security work. But he yearned to do more and didn’t hesitate when he learned through contacts with other former soldiers about security work in Iraq.

    Jerry Zovko
    A 6’3″ former Army Ranger, he was born in Cleveland, joined the military in 1991 and had a reputation for being independent, with a knack for getting what he wanted. A Croatian-American, he got himself assigned to Bosnia in 1995 to help keep the peace. In 1997, after being thwarted in joining the Green Berets, he left the army and went to work as a security contractor for DynCorp in Qatar and Dubai, where he learned Arabic. In the summer of 2003, he signed on with Vinnell to help train the new Iraqi army, telling his family it was important work because the Iraqis needed the chance to take charge of their own country. Three months later, he joined Blackwater Security Consulting.

    Scott Helvenston
    By all accounts, Scott Helvenston, who joined Blackwater in March 2004, was well prepared for security work. He had been a Navy SEAL instructor and was a world class athlete. But he was in debt and Blackwater’s pay — about $600 a day — was a chief reason for signing on for a two-month contract.
    A final e-mail — Written on the eve of his departure for the mission, to Blackwater officials. He complains about last-minute changes in pulling the team together and some problems with a team member. But he declares his resolve to stick with the mission.

    Mike Teague
    Teague, 38, was always devoted to defending his country. He had returned from his military deployment to Iraq in December, but he still had more to accomplish, said friend Johnny Ratliffe.
    So Teague applied for a position with Blackwater Security Consultants to provide security for food deliveries in the Fallujah area, according to a news release from the company. He left Clarksville two weeks ago for a four-month assignment.
    “We will miss him beyond measure,” Rhonda Teague, 30, said through a family friend last night. “Mike was a proud father, soldier and friend.”
    Teague, a former member of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, died along with four other Americans civilians Wednesday after they were attacked with rocket-propelled grenades. The men’s bodies were mutilated and dragged through the streets.

  17. If you had any honor and personal integrity you’d quit smearing Kos, and apologize.

    I have both of those, it would appear the converse is in order.

    ……………don’t make me stop this car Scooper.

  18. Haven’t you guys had this Kos fight before? Take it somewhere else.

  19. Talk to Anderson, not me.

  20. AndersonScooper

    Sorry Genghis–

    I just get upset when a person who has never served attempts to propagate a smear job against someone who has worn the uniform.

    Back to my original point, which was that it’s shameful that the Republicans decided not to support the President’s attempt to restore consumer confidence in the form of the latest stimulus package.

    An elective war was okay, but best attempts at trying to avoid a vicious cycle of layoffs, fear, … more layoffs and more fear — is somehow time for partisanship?
