Rush Limbaugh coins a new term: Hispandering

Rush Limbaugh coins a new term: Hispandering

Tin-eared Rush has coined a new term that should make all the GOP shudder: Hispandering.

We may have a new theory why the GOP lost the Hispanic vote: the only Hispanics voting Republican are those who don't mind being insulted by Rush.

Hispanics should not feel alone, of course. We all know about Limbaugh's war on women. He has also engaged in a continuing jeremiad against Muslims, and he's not too fond of American workers either. All this, from the erstwhile leader of the Republican Party.
Limbaugh has accepted big bucks to stealth-recruit for the ultra-right wing Heritage Action for America which, on election eve, declared war on President Obama.

He has flung gay slurs at New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and President Obama.

Limbaugh has been accused by fellow Republicans of being the main reason the GOP lost the election. He has acknowledged and ridiculed that assertion while unveiling a biting parody of President Obama as Santa Claus bribing voters with gifts. In doing so, he also thumbed his nose at Republican Speaker Boehner, and aimed his accusation of embracing vote-bribery directly at Latinos.

Most recently Limbaugh has, menacingly and absurdly, predicted that liberals will riot over ObamaCare.

A growing number of moderate GOP advocates have seen enough, and are either criticizing Limbaugh directly, or are lamenting the conservative information bubble generated by the "conservative entertainment complex." Rush mocked the accusation by offering a "most dangerous man in America" T-shirt.

More Rush, here.

1. You know what?

I want to see his birth certificate. I want to know if he really can prove he's an American citizen and eligible to vote. Why should only brown people have to prove themselves? Racist prick!

4. Disgusting. But it will only rebound against the Rethugs in the end.

Rush appears to be going off the deep end. I wonder if the Rethugs will ever screw up enough courage to rein this guy in. Until they do, he's single-handedly doing more destruction to the Rethug brand than I could ever hope for.

6. The Republicans can pretend they had a change of heart on immigration all they want...

But as long as they continue to embrace people like Limbaugh and Joe Arpaio the Latino vote is going to become even more solidly Democratic.

18. my thoughts exactly - keep talking Rush

you may be solidifying that angry old white guy vote, but they are dying from their Marlboros and Budweiser.
and you firming up minorities for Democrats. Guess which will be around longer

Keep it up, GOP. We'd like 2014 and 2016 to be as nice as 2012.

19. RW pundits are a double-edged sword. Big support. From a few people.


Limbaugh, Beck, et al are great at ginning up resentment in a certain segment of the population. Unfortunately, it's a segment that would vote Republican anyway, and the nasty-fest requires alienating pretty much everyone else.

And the election just demonstrated that the Really Angry Nutty Rightwinger Base isn't enough to carry national elections on its own.

Republicans are starting to figure this out, complaining about the "Conservative Entertainment Complex."

But that doesn't mean they can do anything about it.

Can't say I'm super sympathetic. They wanted to fight on the basis of tribalism and distrust and painting the other side as illegitimate. Now they know they can't reliably win on that basis.

Very sad, really. (insert jovial emoticon here).

24. That's it Rush. Continue to piss off the people you need to keep the GOP viable.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. That's the GOP.

You're the Democratic party's secret weapon. You are a living example of right wing conservatism in all it's obnoxious glory.
