We are witnessing a bipartisan media convergence. The recent phenomenon of prominent Republicans criticizing Rush, only to issue a groveling apology the following day, finally reached its peak with Michael Steele, the supposed head of the Republican party. My favorite headline of the week came from Wonkette: Rush Limbaugh Has Balls Of Steele. Rush has a sizable set of followers in the Republican party, and is unlikely to try and squash the rumors that he is the real voice of the GOP. The left sees his high negatives and is ready to help the Republicans rally around a leader with a low ceiling. It is Hillary all over again. In the above video Ron Paul shows that you don’t have to be in the center to appeal to the center. You just have to have some real honest solutions. In order to do that these days, you can’t stay with the party line, of any party.
Saturday Night Live has also weighed in on the issue, which means it has truly reached mainstream proportions. (via the Intellectual Redneck)
