    I'm not sure they should be allowed to go underground. I'd rather the whole world see how they are. Because I truly believe it helped energize our people. And they can run Rubio for every elected office there is for the next decade, but as long as Rush and his ilk remain the spokespersons for their movement they won't win if the electorate becomes more colorful.

      Pretty boy Rubio is the emptiest shirt in Congress!  If he weren't so cute in that kind of '60s fey Hispanic way, he'd be selling cars in Miami.

      All Marco's ever done is carry Jeb's bags and abuse the State credit card.  That's literally it.

    •  There is a problem with leaving them alone (1+ / 0-)

      This election outcome was at least an indirect, and possibly in some ways a direct, result of Rush Limbaugh's attack on Sandra Fluke. That broke through the information bubble, and society became aware of what was inside the right wing echo chamber.

      But that outburst was also the exception in its depraved intensity and its duration. What if the left didn't have any good, outstanding examples of "war on women" to point to? What if all the laws were passed incrementally and quietly so as not to provoke general public outrage?

      This may be precisely the lesson that conservatives will take from this past election. The possibility that they might keep the right wing propaganda below the noise level is very real. A flushed Rush is ever so much better than any possibility of a stealth Rush in the aftermath of this turbulent election season.
