68. Do we want that loon off the air?
I voted yes,and I already sent the letters. After reading Rich's editorial in the Sunday Times and the New York Times on Nativism I am sort of having second thoughts. Having Rush as the defacto head of the Republican Party for awhile might be pretty good. It does one of two things. One possibility is that by having that nitwit wielding that much power in a weakened Republican party it completely marginalizes the Republicans to the point where, as Rich wrote, in 2012, the Republicans are looking at Alf Landon numbers. A second possibility is that the Republicans start returning to some semblance of normality ( I say some semblance even as I choke on it, because, personally even a moderate Republican is very far from where I am) as the loons gather off in their own little compound and the sane ones view Rush and his ilk as the crazy dysfunctional relatives that they really are, the normal ( if misguided) ones stop inviting them to the family reunions every four years ( Gee, Rush we're sure we invited you to the Convention. What's that? Sean and Bill didn't get an invite either. Dobson too? Can't imagine what happened. Yeah. It must be the post office's fault. Damned government. Well, gotta run).
