Democrats Now Apologizing to Limbaugh

Getting in line behind Republicans prostrating themselves to the right-wing radio host is a freshman U.S. Congressman from Florida, Rep. Alan Grayson:
"I’m sorry Limbaugh called for harsh sentences for drug addicts while he was a drug addict. I’m also sorry that he’s bent on seeing America fail. And I’m sorry that Limbaugh is one sorry excuse for a human being."

Well-player, Sir. That's fucking inspired. I wish my Rep had a pair like that, instead I'm saddled with DINO Heath Schuler.

Not to be left out, the DCCC (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) has uncovered the GOP's "Apology to Rush" form letter.

Are you sure this is a Democrat? With them fightin' words?? What would Harry Reid think...

'bout time some Dems grew a set. At least Obama's crew doesn't seem to pull their punches too much.

Awesome. That is all.

The Dems are playing this brillantly. Limbaugh is only popular with the a relatively small group of conservatives. In other words, there are many other conservatives that are starved for some intelligent, grown-ups to lead them. Since the GOP seems to want to suck up to Rush, this is a good chance to attrack some of the moderates.

Oh, its awesome alright. Rush only preaches to the converted, and I suspect as the rhetoric and infighting escalate it will drive moderates away from the GOP.

It's a no-lose proposition for Obama and the Dems, as long as they can keep the focus on Rush.

The problem arises when the resst of the media starts to treat Rush's lies as equivalent to an Obama truth for the purposes of "he said-he said" phoney balance.

I think Rush was more effective for the Republicans working more in the shadows and along the edges. Despite what they think, having him as the figurehead for the party will be a mistake.

Pass the popcorn.
