Rush Limbaugh

From Wolking's World:

When you get a 20-point swing in white women from Obama to McCain, thatís unprecedented. I donít think anybodyís seen that kind of movement that quickly in presidential politics in their lifetimes.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

[Thomas] Friedman, youíre a little bit late to the party here. Obamaís idiotic lipstick and dead fish comments were examples of Obama getting tough. Thatís how he gets tough! This is how community agitators man up, folks. The real problem ó and I say this to Tom Friedman and to all the others who are getting quaky in your boots. I mean, this clown that calls here right before the end of the hour, if that doesnít illustrate liberals, I donít know what does. Call here and say Sarah Palin canít put two sentences together, when his own candidate canít put a paragraph together without an "uh," and an "eh, you know, uhhh." Obama doesnít have any ideas he can get tough on. See, this is the real problem.

How would he get tough on tax increases? How would he get tough on surrender in military conflict? How does one get tough about not drilling for oil? I mean, is he going to sit there and angrily pound his fist and say, ďIf you donít properly inflate your tires, Iím going to lose it! Shut up about high gas prices and listen to me, quit your whining. Go out and buy a tire gauge and use it in an air pump or stick it where the sun donít shine!Ē Whatís he gonna do? How does he get mad about that and get tough about his issues? How do you get tough telling people how youíre going to screw Ďem? You hide the fact that youíre going to screw Ďem. Barack Obama does not have any ideas that Americans want, Barack Obama does not have any ideas that Americans need.

The guy is a one trick pony. He climbed into the arena of ideas with a speech from 2004 in one hand and in the other, a speech about him being The One weíve been waiting for. And now that heís punched out, his followers are stunned, thatís all their guy had. They have been passionately backing a man who has accomplished zilch, zero, nada. He hasnít accomplished anything. He has no life story he can tell. Well, he has a life story, but he wonít tell it.

It certainly is quite a meltdown. I'm on the verge of . . . schadenfreude.

Only on the verge? Heck, I ain't even near the place and I'd crossed the verge long ago, the instant I learnt McCain actually had the brains - not only to pick Sarah Palin, but also to keep it secret from most everybody, which took some doing. Verge? What's that? Oh, that thing I passed some few light-years ago...

:) VBEG and all that.

Which doesn't give me much credit as a sombre, rational-type conservative, but there you are.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
