Rush Limbaugh’s hatred of all things McCain now extends to 97 year old Roberta McCain. After McCain’s mom said on The Tonight Show that Rush’s GOP doesn’t represent her, Limbaugh fired back by saying her Republican Party gets shellacked in election after election, but don’t they both belong to the same party?
Here is the video of Roberta McCain on The Tonight Show:
Roberta McCain said, “I don’t know what the man means, I don’t know what he’s talking about…the chairman of the Republican party [Michael] Steele was exactly right when he defined him as an entertainer.” Of course, this caused Rush to go on the attack against a 97 year old woman.
Here is the audio of Limbaugh’s response courtesy of Media Matters:
Limbaugh’s response was, “She’s right, absolutely right. The Republican Party she belongs to gets shellacked election after election.” Don’t they both belong to the same party? Isn’t Rush’s party also getting shellacked in election after election? In fact, one could validly argue that Roberta McCain’s Republican Party enjoyed a great deal of success until Rush Limbaugh came to power.
Ever since Rush Limbaugh started giving the GOP advice, the party has been hitting new lows. It is no surprise that Rush would jump all over the comments of a 97 year old woman, but ignore the jokes of Wanda Sykes. Rush attacked, McCain’s mom as a way of blaming McCain for losing the last election. Limbaugh is the leader of that group of flighty Republicans who believe that their party is fine. All the blame rests with John McCain.
Plus, no Republican is allowed to question the iron hand of Rush Limbaugh without facing serious consequences. I wonder what Rush’s excuse will be when the GOP loses more congressional seats in 2010. Who will he blame when Obama obliterates their 2012 nominee? One thing is clear. Everything that goes wrong is never Limbaugh’s fault. There is always someone else to blame, even when the GOP is doing it Rush’s way.
