Rush Limbaugh Is In Love With Joe The Plumber

From Media Matters (via Pam's House Blend):

LIMBAUGH: Why are they still kneecapping Sarah Palin? Hmm? I mean, I know I'm fair game. I'm out there. But why are they still kneecapping Sarah Palin? They're out there kneecapping Bobby Jindal. They're still kneecapping -- the drive-bys, the Democrats -- Rick Santorum. They're still jumping on Joe the Plumber -- a private citizen, for heaven's sake. All he did was ask Obama a question. Why are they continuing to try to destroy virtually anyone and everyone who can articulate conservatism? It's 'cause they are afraid of us.

Yes, we're afraid of them, but not for the reasons Limbaugh might rant about. Conservatism isn't at issue here. Uber Right Wingnutism is. People like Rush Limbaugh support right-wing violence by what they say...and what they DON'T say. Also, Rush, Sam Wurtzelbach (JtP) gave up being a private citizen a long time ago because he realizes that being a "celebrity" means more money than being a part-time-apprentice-would-be-small-business-owner plumber. He's enjoying the part of a fake John Doe. He's fair game as much as you are, Rush.

And as for Sarah Palin: she's gonna damn well keep herself in the limelight if she has to murder her whole family. Jindal and Santorum will also willingly join her in the Hypocrits Hall of Fame.

Another reason to think that the Right is in terrible straits: Rush Limbaugh defending Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal, Rick Santorum and Sam Wurtzelbach (JtP) as if they matter in the scheme of things. They don't. But please don't tell him.

Just a thought.
