    Media Bias: Not long after pro football welcomed a convicted felon back on the playing field, Rush Limbaugh is dropped for his opinions from a group seeking to buy an NFL franchise. Won't someone throw a flag? When even Keith Olbermann says back off, you know the politically correct critics of the conservative icon and megaradio talk host's proposed part ownership of the St. Louis Rams are guilty of piling on. The prospect of the leading conservative voice in America participating in the purchase of a football team sent the liberal elites into cardiac arrest and into a frenzied campaign...

    Excerpt: It was confirmed today that the White House is running a campaign against Rush Limbaugh. Is this a smart strategy? Rush Limbaugh was a leading force in the Republican Revolution two years after Bill Clinton first won election. The freshmen Republicans dubbed themselves the “Dittohead Caucus” after their sweeping victory in 1994. Obviously Rush played a critical role in 94' election. Is it smart for the media and the White House to target Limbaugh at a time when a repeat of that 1994 revolution is most likely to occur? The problem for Obama and the White House is that...

    Dittoheads, you've been dissed. Chris Matthews has dismissed you as a bunch of mind-numbed robots. CNBC's John Harwood seconded the insult. It happened on this evening's Hardball as Matthews mused about the potential impact of Operation Chaos on the upcoming primaries. CHRIS MATTHEWS: How much of a move do you hear, John Harwood, the so-called Operation Chaos is going to play next Tuesday in Indianapolis [sic], the effort by Rush Limbaugh, the lovable Rush Limbaugh, I must say, to encourage Republicans, registered Republicans, to go vote for Hillary just to cause chaos and perhaps get her the nomination?

    Does a John McCain Republican victory mean the demise of the "dittoheads?" It is just one of a number of a fascinating back stories to the resurrection of the Arizona senator, a campaign that has had to swim upstream not against the Mitt Romneys and Rudy Giulianis of the world, but the right-wing "talkocracy" of the United States, the family-values wing of the party and some Republican members of Congress. It has been bad news for the "dittoheads," the pejorative name given to the audience of Rush Limbaugh, the country's leading conservative radio voice, for their blind agreement with the...

    Somebody in the Huckabee camp made the mistake of insulting the leader of the conservative movement in the U.S., Rush Limbaugh. Rush responded on Friday's show and basically ripped the Huckabee camp a well-deserved new one. Whoever made the original comments clearly has not been paying attention. Some are questioning whether the Huckabee campaign can survive the shellacking it got on Friday's program. Huckabee is trying to stop the bleeding: SIOUX CITY, Iowa — The best-talking Republican politician in America has a message for the best-talking conservative voice in the country: Let's talk to one another.

The truth is being told, and the people are starting to wake up and realize that Bush and his minions are pushing a big lie. When they can no longer cover their rear ends with lies they will be held accountable for their crimes against the people of this country."

    We had a call from Rancho Mirage, California -- last call in the previous hour -- from John who wanted to draw the distinction, that (summarized): "Yeah, Susan Webber Wright did cite Clinton for contempt but that was in a civil case and he was never convicted on it and the fact he was not convicted of any of this during his impeachment hearings and so to go after Clinton here and try to say there was something different about Clinton that there is about these other cases is a bit of a stretch and Republicans are perhaps being a...
  • Rush Limbaugh: If He Doesn't Indict, Left Will Turn on Fitzgerald

    RUSH: This is John in Raleigh, North Carolina. Hello, sir. Great to have you on the program. CALLER: Thanks, Rush. Wondering, if Mr. Fitzgerald doesn't hand down the expected indictments, or perhaps doesn't go as far as the left wants him to, how quickly do you think Schumer and the rest of the press now praising him will turn on him and he becomes a partisan hack? RUSH: That will take about half a second and I kid you not. I mean, look at how far out they've gotten, "He's a prosecutor's prosecutor. This guy's apolitical." These indictments have already...

    RUSH: I've been thinking about this Harriet Miers problem, folks. I got a solution. Everybody's got their ideas. One of the ideas is that Harriet Miers resign, withdraw, and that Bush nominate her to the appellate court - and let her get some seasoning and go through some hearings there and get out of it that way. I have a different idea but -- oh, before I give you my idea -- I saw a news story yesterday. Let me tell you what I think of it. Sam Brownback and the vice president, Lindsey Graham, both-- (interruption) No, wait. They...
  • Rush Limbaugh: DeLay Smile May Foil Democrats in '06

    RUSH: The Associated Press, in their slug to their first story about this, by their reporterette, their info babe, Laurie Kellman: "DeLay's Mug Shot Smile Hurts Democrat Chances in '06." That is a headline from the Associated Press! Now, I told you people from day one that this is what Ronnie Earle and the Democrats wanted. They wanted this mug shot and they wanted his fingerprints and they wanted the perp walk. Now, they didn't get the perp walk, but they wanted that mug shot so they could use that picture for the rest of DeLay's life. Now, it probably...
  • Rush Limbaugh: Clinton Promised Pro-Abortion Judges

    Snerdley looked it up. He found it. April 5th, 1992, this is during the campaign, Bill Clinton said, "And I will appoint judges to the Supreme Court who believe in the constitutional right to privacy, including the right to choose." So there Clinton did establish his litmus test. So it's okay for the libs to say, "We're going to get a pro-choice nominee. They're going to be pro-Roe vs. Wade," but somehow Republicans can't say this. Republican nominees say it. Republican presidents can't say it. "Weeeell, I have never talked to our nominee about that! You know, I don't have...

    RUSH: All right, let's go to the audio sound bites. Seriously, I want to get these things about me out of the way so we can move on to the other items in the Stack of Stuff today. It's really funny how the press is turning on Judith Miller. To think -- to think! -- that they held retirement parties for Dan Rather; to think that they gave him all kinds of awards. He got the Peabody Award. The media circled the wagons to protect Dan Rather. They want Judith Miller back in jail. She has committed -- this is...

    RUSH: This next story made page A-22 in the Washington Post yesterday. "On the Streets of Iraq, Scenes of Joy and Determination" is the headline. "For the cooped-up children of bomb-weary Baghdad, referendum day was a winner, no matter what the final outcome. A security ban on private vehicles, invoked to keep would-be bombers from reaching targets, had a blissful side effect: The boys and girls of Baghdad took back the streets for a day," and it goes on and on and on to describe what a pleasant day the Election Day was in Iraq. If you look at this,...

    RUSH: Eric in Destin, Florida. Hello, sir, welcome. CALLER: Dittos, Rush. RUSH: Thank you. CALLER: Yes, sir. Susan Estrich is floating a trial balloon in her latest book that if Hillary loses the '08 election that it sets back the women's movement more so than Judge Bork ever could have. And I just wanted to get your opinion on that. RUSH: I've grown to like Susan Estrich, but I just think it's poppycock. I think what set the feminist movement back is feminism. The feminist movement has already been set back. The feminist movement, we're going to be overturning Roe...

    RUSH: We got great audio sound bites from Calypso Louie coming up. Calypso Louie's -- what is this thing being called tomorrow? The Million More March. You know, tomorrow is a fascinating day, ladies and gentlemen. Tomorrow is showdown Saturday. This is Open Line Friday. Tomorrow is a Saturday that will test aspirations. It will test hopes and dreams. Will they reject the past and look to building a better future? If you think I'm talking about the referendum in Iraq, you're only partially correct. I am talking about that. They're going to be voting on the constitution there tomorrow....
  • Rush Limbaugh: Left Salivates over Conservative Crackdown

    All right, folks, the left is out there salivating over what is happening in the conservative world over the Harriet Miers nomination. Two things here: Robin Toner's piece in the New York Times today, and a Howard Fineman column titled, "The Conservative Crackup." The subhead is: "How the Neocons Have Developed a Political Exit Strategy," and I just know that Howard was sitting there drooling over his keyboard as he was typing this piece -- and, remember, Fineman had a piece recently that was two years late in discovering the influence that the extremist left-wing bloggers have on the mainstream...

    RUSH: Jim Dobson recorded his radio show for today and tomorrow yesterday; the transcripts for that show are out. Now as you know, one of the things that irked Senator Specter is that Dobson admitted that maybe Karl Rove told him some things he "shouldn't know" – everybody assumed – when he called him to give him a heads-up on the nomination of Harriet Miers, the US Supreme Court. Well, everybody ran and rushed to judgment on that and said, "A-ha! A-ha! Rove told Dobson that she's a definite vote against Roe vs. Wade," which of course if that were...

    RUSH: Good old Justice Stephen Breyer is continuing to speak. We have some sound bites from him. He was speaking Monday in Washington at a symposium on public service and international law. Now, Breyer is a known commodity. He was a liberal when he was nominated; he was a liberal when he was confirmed, and he's a liberal on the court, and the liberals didn't have to be stealth about him, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg? She was a liberal when she's nominated, and she is a liberal on the court, and they didn't have to be stealth about her and...

    RUSH: Bill in North Brunswick, New Jersey, welcome to the EIB Network. Great to have you. You are up first today. CALLER: Good afternoon, Rush. I have to say that I think the response of some of the big-name conservatives, Kristol, Podhoretz, Krauthammer and even you to an extent has been reflexively negative on this nomination. I've been a conservative for over 40 years, and I was inclined to at least give the president the benefit of the doubt through the first couple of days, perhaps through the hearings. You know, I think the behavior of conservatives in this matter...

    Folks let me tell you a little bit about my evening last night -- and I'm here today, and I knew this was going to happen. I'm here today on about three hours, 2-1/2 hours sleep. So I'm in a giddy mood and we all know what happens when I'm in a giddy mood. The broadcast engineer's finger is poised over the deedle button at all times, as, you know, we get close to that line of pushing the envelope, as it were. Last night was the 50th anniversary of National Review magazine. Now, National Review magazine, of course, is...
