Rush Limbow-wow: King Maker or King Breaker?

When All You've Got For Defense Is An Aging Pitbull

LIMBAUGH: [T]he people on our side are really making a mistake if they go after Bobby Jindal on the basis of style. Because if you think — people on our side I’m talking to you — those of you who think Jindal was horrible, you think — in fact, I don’t ever want to hear from you ever again. … I’ve spoken to him numerous times, he’s brilliant. He’s the real deal.


Responses to Jindal's speech:


"an earnest dork"
"a weird inflection"
"figured out a way to speak too quickly and too slowly at the same time"

and the ultimate:

"unlikely to expand the party base"

NOTE: And these comments are from CONSERVATIVES!

Honestly, with that staircase in the background he looked like he was poised at the front door trying to make his pitch to the mailman.

But anyway, he's got Rush Limbow-wow to defend him. And how could you do better than that? After all, Rush thinks of himself as an acolyte of William F. Buckley (I think he met Buckley and served him drinks - once). That in itself should prove to you how wonderfully Republican and human Jindal is. Not!

Let me digress: Limbaugh putting himself into the shoes of William F. Buckley is totally ridiculous. I interviewed Buckley twice on my old syndicated radio show, "Strictly Books" and can tell you that Limbaugh would never have gained the slightest bit of respect from Buckley. Limbaugh's monosyllabic screeds would have appalled Buckley who was a conservative patrician through and through. Buckley would have put down Limbaugh with one or two sextasyllabic words and that would have been the end of a discussion.

No matter that Limbow-wow seems to be his only champion, Jindal should start distancing himself from the fat old-but-arrogant pitbull who intends to hold a "summit conference" on why women don't like him!

I own the men, and what must I do now to own women? And who better to ask than women? Including some of those who may agree that I’m unfavorable. So stand by for that.

One thing about the Female Summit: sorry, no transsexuals. We’re not going to have anybody who’s had an addadictomy, and we’re not going to have anybody who’s had a chopadickoffamy. We’re going to have women from birth.

How wonderfully Buckleyesque! "...women from birth?" We know what he's saying, but somehow it just SOUNDS dreadful.

Like Bobby Jindal.

Just a thought.
