Well, if Democrats are incapable of seeing Rush for who he is (which is obviously the case considering the absurd petition they started) then yes, they are better off ignoring him because they only end up looking foolish in the end.
I disagree. Democrats should encourage Rush Limbaugh to speak out and as often as possible. Rush speaks for the right-wing GOP and the more people know about Rush's ideas and the ideas of the GOP the better it is for Democrats.

Yes, he should be ignored. Just as liberal pundits should.
Of course, they ARE good for a bit of entertainment once in a while. And cracking jokes at their expence...
Rush has fallen out though. Not even SNL bothers with him anymore.
