Steele Attacks Limbaugh's Show As "Incendiary," "Ugly"

.
Today's Republican Party is a sinking ship. And now the rats are turning on each other. As Politico reports, Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele has attacked the OxyMoron's HateWing radio program. Steele called Limbaugh an "entertainer," whose show is "incendiary" and "ugly."

I'm sure that GOP pressure will eventually force Steele to backtrack on his comments. For now, I'm really loving this. And I have to admit: at least for the moment, I do have some respect for Steele, for daring to speak up against this vicious hate-mongering NeoNazi, whose fascist spewings have long been embraced by so many in the GOP establishment.

Here's the report from Politico:

On the same night he was offering the keynote address to the Conservative Political Action Conference, Rush Limbaugh drew criticism from an unlikely source: Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele.

In a little-noticed interview Saturday night, Steele dismissed Limbaugh as an "entertainer" whose show is "incendiary" and "ugly."

Steele’s criticism makes him the highest-ranking Republican to pick a fight with the popular and polarizing conservative talk show host.

But the new RNC chairman’s extraordinary comments won’t sit well with the millions of conservative listeners Limbaugh draws each week, and Steele aides scrambled to limit the damage Monday morning by trying to change the subject.

I'd say the condition of the Republican Party is now critical. Steele has apparently been compelled to apologize to Lardbaugh, who, by the way, was characteristically ungracious.

Why are the lunatic fringes along the political spectrum the ones with all the power, money, and influence in this country, while the moderates and the citizenry are essentially impotent in this monkey farm of a country? I swear to God, every time I turn my back, some group of morons, be they politicians, robber-barons, or special interest groups causes billions of dollars in damage, misery, and pain. Better clean those sidearms and sharpen those garden tools, it's getting downright FUGLY out there...

Big man, pig man, ha ha, charade you are
You well heeled big wheel, ha ha, charade you are
And when your hand is on your heart
You're nearly a good laugh
Almost a joker
With your head down in the pig bin
Saying "keep on digging"
Pig stain on your fat chin
What do you hope to find?
When you're down in the pig mine
You're nearly a laugh
You're nearly a laugh
But you're really a cry.

That poor guy who got the KoolAid award for the day indicative of people who flunked economics in high school. And then flunked economics again when they bought into the Chicago School thinking of the Freidmanite Freaks. Even Nixon wasn't stupid enough to buy into that rubbish.

Just let the Republicans collapse. I won't be sorry to see them go.
