  •  Wow..tune in and listen to the Rush Limbaugh show (none)
    You can hear the Republican base fly apart live on radio.

    Just amazing.

      find Rush Limbaugh on the radio.  Can you give a synopsis of what you're hearing?

        1. unfortunately I tuned in too late to hear it, but Cheney felt the need to be a guest and explain the Meirs nomination.  

        2. what I did hear was Rush declare great concern and disappointment that after 40-50 years of great effort on the part of the Conservative movement to arrive at this juncture in history (i.e. Repub. president, Repub. majority in both Houses, and a chance to take control of the Supreme Court) that Bush is choosing to gamble with Meirs vs. choosing someone with credentials who can be trusted.

        3. that this is (he says 'again') an example of Bush caving into the Left Wing Dems.

        4. he doesn't come out and oppose Meirs outright because, as he put it to an outraged caller, he doesn't know what can be done about it

        5. he explains Bushes possible thinking behind the choice as fear that a number of Repub liberal senators would bail on a nomination of a recognized conservative choice... and then he lists the names of who those senators are!

        6. callers are furious... calling for a fight over the next nomination to get a real conservative vs. someone like Bush.  i.e. they're splintering

        it just goes on and on.... great stuff

              something must be wrong with me for sure.

              I find Rush's show highly entertaining and it hardly ever fails to put me in a good mood.

              Also I also get a kick out of reading the Enquirer waiting in the supermarket line.
