This huge bru-ha-ha against Rush Limbaugh is a direct effort to marginalize him and hopefully turn fence sitters away from him completely.
There is probably a very good reason for this...and my guess is that this reason is as follows:
Just like democrats are afraid of Sarah Palin (for very good reason) and Bobby Jindal (again, for very solid reasons), they are PETRIFIED of Rush because as unhappiness grows across this nation, more and more may turn to him to hear his opinions and amazingly, Rush nails down the facts/truth of the dirtbag democrats plans--THE END GAME, as it were. And he does this in a way that makes the democrat socialist freaks scared because he clarifies their goals in a way that the average American can understand (with the exception of Rio Linda folks, of course :^).
Apparently Rush has the ability to unset their commie apple cart and they are determined to shut him up, at all costs.... even to the point of having the folks who work in our WH degrade Rush with name calling. It is beyond pathetic.
We have genuine children running the show in DC now, power crazed nuts who have the depth of a puddle and the maturity of a bitch in heat.
