If I were Rush, I'd have little glee orgasms every single time some goofball in power on the left mentions my name.
Why wouldn't he?
His listeners cannot stand the people who are attacking him, for the most part, and every time one of them does it, it does indeed elevate him.
In fact, when Obama and others mention Rush, the people who are pissed off about what is going on in Washington with this spending are MORE likely to tune in.
And if someone is not a regular listener already, the fact that they hear from the President about someone who is saying what they might be thinking, they might be even more inclined to check out what is being said.
I'm sure the only outcome of this whole debacle so far has been a boost in Rush's ratings and popularity with his base.
Why bother fueling his fire?
I don't get it.
