Limbaugh is only a threat to the Republicans

Is anyone else disturbed by the way any Republican leader who has dared to say anything remotely critical of Rush Limbaugh has felt compelled to crawl to him and beg absolution? Now the latest one to don ash clothe is Republican National Chairman Micheal Steele.
For calling Limbaugh an "entertainer". Really?

Democrats are loving this obviously but I am creeped out by this. I know there were those put off by the overwhelming public adulation of President Obama (actually it did give me pause, but then you know, I was a Hillary supporter) but I think this is far more ominous. It is perceived that Limbaugh can make or break political careers and is the man to please. And yet he is not in public office, was not elected and has no accountablity. The fact that he has a lot of listeners does not mean they all agree with him. I listen to him on occasion. To know what nonsense he's spouting and because, after all, he is entertaining.

  1. Yes, it is creepy and you can see he loves it. As one of the liberal commentators pointed out last evening, many of the conservatives who are now in the limelight have been convicted or are under indictment for various crimes. If this is the best that they can do, then the Dems are safe. On the other hand, apparently Hitler was the best that the Germans could do too. Yikes.

    I'd really really really like to see a coherent logical loyal opposition with good arguments.
