    Following GOP Loss, Rush Limbaugh Downplays His Influence On Republican Party | Blog | Media Matters for America

    Limbaugh also has a history of high-profile relationships within the GOP. National Review reported that Ronald Reagan sent Limbaugh an "unsolicited note" in which he called Limbaugh "the number one voice of conservatism in our country... keep up the good work." After the GOP takeover of Congress in 1994, the freshmen class of House Republicans made Limbaugh an honorary member and gave him credit for their victory.
    So. Are you going to continue lying?

    He's been playing this nonsensical game for a dozen posts now. IMO, he's not being sincere at all. He asked me to show him Republicans making bigoted remarks and has since then argued that the people I quoted aren't Republicans.

    Denial is all he has. But, it's not at all believable.

    You would have thought the Democrat Party would have done a better job of finding a clown to fill the large clown shoes of Senator Joe Biden.

    Joe Biden was the biggest Clown who wore the biggest clown shoes in the Senate.

    The world laughs at Obama because he has a clown as his Vice Clown and Chief.

    Although myself I would have went with someone else other than Media Matters for the real dope on Limbaugh.

    When He says something there are also millions of Republicans that don't have a clue as to what Limbaugh is talking about. Nor do they listen to him. Calling him a leader of the GOP and knowing he is nothing more than a Radio Jock is totally disingenuous. Same deal with Beck or Hannity or O'Reilly.

    None call any shots in the GOP.....more than likely contributes, but definitely none call any shots or hold any power in the GOP.

    Myself.....I don't use the term Aliens for Human beings or homo-sapiens. I figures I would save that one for when the Off-Worlders arrive.
