The Obama White House has inadvertently done something for Rush Limbaugh that the best media operatives in the world would give their Fendi shades to be able to do for their clients.
After picking the conservative icon to be its Alinski-style target, the Screwtape Squad has almost doubled Rush’s already staggering radio ratings.
We can only imagine that the “geniuses” will try and pin the idea on the other guy-Rahm will blame it on Gibbs, Axelrod will lay it on Biden, Geithner will cuss out Holder, etc.
The attempt to make Rush the leader of the GOP has resulted in more folks than ever being educated about true conservative principles.
Talkers magazine shows Limbaugh’s weekly audience has shot up from 14.2 million to about 25 million since he was targeted by the bumbling media masterminds.
But the icing on the cake is that fewer people will now buy the idea that Rush is a ***! (Fill-in-the-lefty blank).
In an unrelated bit of unsubstantiated rumor, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Committee on Tolerance and Compassion plans to eliminate a previous designation that had been used to describe Hollywood actors, directors and producers who were self-proclaimed Republicans.
Based on current policy changes being implemented by the Obama administration and international law, now even conservatives, Christians and Southern white males who are known to have strong to loose ties with the GOP Party will no longer have to wear the “enemy combatant” label.
A spokesperson for the Academy stated that the change of moniker was the result of an extensive review of policy relating to those with “out of favor” ideology.
“The policy alteration that we have made today meets with our standards and will serve to make our industry stronger and justicier,” spokesperson R.U. Kidding said.
As a result of the new terminology, Hollywood GOP-ers will now be referred to as “unemployed detainees.”
