Support for Limbaugh increases


And it’s still coming from both parties. RNC Chairman Michael Steele backed off comments about Rush Limbaugh, saying “My intent was not to go after Rush – I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh…There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.” That inspired DNC Chairman Tim Kaine and White House spokesman Robert Gibbs to cite Steele’s retraction as evidence that Limbaugh is indeed the de facto head of the Republican Party for the time being.

RBR/TVBR observation: Amazing. We promise not to beat this apparently endless story to death, but it’s – well, amazing! Can anybody think of any precedent for this going back to 1776, when the party on the outs turned to its brightest-shining media star? We can’t think of one.
