The Meltdown Continues

The Republicans appear to be on the same trajectory as the economy. Michael Steele called Rush Limbaugh an entertainer, and really, Limbaugh hasn't failed to entertain all of us watching the Republican Party meltdown from the sidelines, as they just continue to marginalize themselves. We've certainly talked a lot about it on the show and had fun with some of the dittoheads who called in to defend their man and his hopes that Obama -- and thus the country -- will fail.

The White House has played it well, pointing to Limbaugh as the leader of the Republican Party, and Steele basically admitted as much after his pathetic and groveling apology. But the members of the self-described moderate David Brooks/Kathleen Parker wing of the party, shrinking as it is, are horrified and adamantly denying that Limbaugh is the leader of the party, and they don't seem to like the inept Steele either. So who is the Republican Party leader? Palin and Jindal just seem to self-immolate on cue each time they jump into the center ring. Parker now says it's none other than Williard "Mitt" Romney. Even though the fundies wouldn't go near him last time around I guess she's counting on desperation to force them into backing a Joseph Smith follower next time. Do they have enough big love for that?
