Rush Limbaugh: I Never Really Liked Those Guys Anyway

Admitted prescription drug abuser Rush Limbaugh, quoted in The Huffington Post:

The way I feel is this: I feel liberated, and I'm going to tell you as plainly as I can why. I no longer am going to have to carry the water for people who I don't think deserve having their water carried. Now, you might say, 'Well, why have you been doing it?' Because the stakes are high! Even though the Republican Party let us down, to me they represent a far better future for my beliefs and therefore the country's than the Democrat [sic] Party does and liberalism.

Well, it's easy to scream hypocrisy about this. But let's fess up...isn't this the way a lot of us felt about John Kerry? "He supported the war, and he was a terrible campaigner, but he's all we've got against Bush."

Not too long ago, there was a liberal columnist THE COLBERT REPORT who admittedly hated Bush and the Iraq War, but voted against Kerry.

"He would have been worse," he said.

That's actually scary, even if Kerry's not nearly the pinhead this president is.

The good thing is now the GOP has to go out and recruit local talent and start over again.

OK, America, remember: One every decade, throw the bums out and make the party in power recruit new talent. Repeat every 8-12 years.

And never let the same party hold the White House and Congress.

I think you're on to something there, Jim.
