Limbaugh's effect on the GOP

October 02, 2008

Re "The GOP's real go-to guy," Sept. 29

I was disappointed to read this complimentary article on Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh, along with Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter and Karl Rove, are some of the main reasons our country is so divided. They spew forth lies, half-truths and anything that will promote their self-serving cause that they are right -- really right -- and that anyone who disagrees with them is unpatriotic and un-American.

These so-called spokespeople for the right wing and the Republican Party have ruined the party of Abraham Lincoln, and in my case caused me to change my registration from being a lifelong Republican to Democrat this year.

My hope is that mainstream America will someday see Limbaugh and his kind for what they are -- hate-mongers who care for a very few no matter the cost to the good of America.

Wow. So that's who's running the Republican Party! Rush Limbaugh! It all makes so much sense now. The Sarah Palin choice, race-baiting, the incoherent political strategy.

I think we should take a cue from Zev Chavets and make sure everybody knows this little tidbit. If we do, Democrats will win hands down. Spread the word.

When the thrice-divorced, recovering drug addict and blowhard of monumental proportions Limbaugh is a moral authority and the most influential voice in the Republican Party, we have seen the beginning of the end of the United States.

Limbaugh is nothing more than a narcissistic provocateur who has a radio entertainment show. That so many millions of Americans actually take him seriously and think that his ideas are in their best interest is very sad indeed.
