Rush was really on today. He had a really important and insightful show.

Good job Rush and spot on the target.

How mind wants to rationalize what one disagrees with.

There is another factor. McClellan’s mother lost the GOP nomination for Texas Governor (she was too liberal) and Bush supported the GOP nominee. This is payback.

Bottom-line: McClellan wanted the money (and probably needed it).

Why aren’t these people required to sign some sort of non disclosure agreement, at least for a reasonable amount of time, in exchange for the job???

Personally, I think the story behind this book can probably be traced from looking at each of the drafts.

I bet he secured a deal and then turned in his manuscript, only to have it returned with the comment “there’s nothing here, you need to spice it up if you want a best seller”

this led him down a path to more and more outrageous assertions until the publishers were happy with the product.

This would explain why his former colleagues are saying “this isn’t the Scott McClellan we knew”.

If the Bush White House was so horrible, why didn’t Scott McClellan rush right out after he quit and tell Congress all of the shenanigans that were allegedly going on?

How Washington Culture Seduces

So who do the Republicans nominate to run against one of two of the most socialist, anti-American, DemonRat candidates ever to be nominated?

A guy who was seduced by that culture starting in 1982 (Elected to House) and being fully seduced by '86 (first elected to Senate). Yea, that gonna work out real well.

Rush Limbaugh on Washington and his enemies.

I don't care. I am the one who doesn't care who likes me or dislikes me. I used to,but I don't any more. I doesn't matter to me. I am at the stage of my life and what I do, I'm actually proud of the people who hate me as I am of my friends,because they hate me for a good reason.That's because I'm a problem. That's because I pose them a great problem and because they can't turn me.

Wise words indeed. Words worthy of an elder statesman. Possibly they will go unheard by some Republicans. I have seen well meaning persons in Canadian politics, oh yes, Mr Nice Guy. Keep all the old party hacks in important non elected positions. Next comes the dagger in the back. (Hello Joe Clark). So neatly put, it hardly is noticed. The Canadian Liberal has an affinity with the American Democrat. Ah, cunning, devious, smiling and obsequious reaching across the aisle, nice guys.

John- laddie beware.

Listening tonight to CTV. It is the second major Canadian news network.

There they are, almost chortling with well professionally concealed glee. A cheering section for old Scotty.

Damn their hides.

This is not only true in the world's most powerful city, it's true in the world's second most powerful city... Sacramento and even in city and county government arenas!!!

In CA, in 1994, conservatives won a small majority in the CA assembly and many city and county elected positions. I well remember the attempt to indoctrinate, coopt and even intimidate newly elected county supervisors at the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) in San Diego. They even had members of the MSM there to "coach" us on how to "deal" with them as newly elected supervisors.

Rush's insight today into the human nature aspect of people winning new positions becoming obsessed with media attention and acceptance by previously established liberals is so thick at functions I described above, you can cut the tension with a knife!!!

Conversely, if one doesn't capitulate and suck-up to these liberal lions and even began to move in a conservative direction, the disdain gets so thick you can cut it with a knife!!! If one pokes fun at them with some rhetorical questions the mood can swing to outright open hostility, or a complete shunning in return... It is truly an intensely interesting study in sheep and sheep dogs!!!

It is the reason I keep telling all of you... "Never fall in love with a politician. They'll break your heart every time!!!" (Lee Rodgers, KSFO AM560)
