The Obama administration has been playing up the GOP’s relationship with Rush Limbaugh and they, in return, have obliged in making the caricature come to life. It’s pathetic to watch a grown man like Michael Steele grovel to Rush after offering such a mild criticism. How do you go home and look your wife in the face after that? It’s amazing how popular and influential Rush remains after all these years. Good for him. Not even the creators of the Pet Rock were able to capitalize on American stupidity this well.
