Pontifications

Well, only if you’re not a real conservative…For everyone else, it’s a bit like watching–well Comedy Central. The Rush-Steele matchup (Rush by TKO in the first, if you were out getting a snack) is the driving narrative, thanks also to Rush’s Orson Welles imitation at the Conservative Political Action Conference this week. And yes, Jon Stewart has the best coverage. But the best line goes to Ann Coulter (no surprise): “Even Jesus had more executive experience than Obama.”

What can get the GOP out of this mess? Maybe this “I’m Sorry, Rush” form letter?
 
Or maybe it’ll have to be something more tectonic. It’s no surprise that Republicans have been bending over backwards for the talk show king. A Gallup analysis shows Limbaugh is viewed favorably by 60 percent of Republicans, while just 23 percent have an unfavorable opinion of him–the last figure actually down from 29 percent six years ago. Who else in the party has those numbers?
