|Conservative direct mail guru Richard Viguerie spells out the bottom line for the GOP and its many, many problems:
"The 'Rushification' of the GOP is the natural and inevitable result of the fact that those who are supposed to provide leadership -- Republican elected officials and party officers -- are doing little to bring the party back," said Viguerie, Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com. "Nature abhors a vacuum, and there is no vacuum in nature as empty as the leadership of the Republican Party today."Ouch. And the air head currently standing at the mouth of the vacuum is none other than our good friend Michael Steele, who is quickly turning out to be almost as golden for Democrats as El Rushbo himself. Steele has quickly gone from the Great Brown Hope of the GOP (oh, sorry, that was Bobby Jindal...) the Great Black Hope of the GOP, to a national punch line (even Morning Joe got at him on Wednesday.) And Politico reports that besides providing endless hilarious sound bites for the ankle biters online, such as myself, and on late night TV, Steele isn't even getting his organization together. So much for the logic in making him RNC chair just because he's not white ...
Meanwhile, the elected leaders of the GOP can't stop themselves from racing to join Steele's genuflection in Rush Limbaugh's general direction (Brer Jindal included), afraid to step away from him but also afraid of the polls showing Obama sky high and El Rushbo rock bottom low, and seemingly oblivious to the trap they've fallen into. And Rush? He thinks the president of the United States has time to call in to his radio show and debate him.
It would be sad if it weren't so funny.
BTW, if you'd like to join Michael Steele and the rest of the GOP in saying sorry to El Rushbo -- and I mean for ANYTHING ... click here for a handy apology generator, courtesy of the DCCC.
