Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
Why is Limbaugh Still Yapping His Flap?
CNN quotes Rush Limbaugh as saying, I now believe he [Obama] would be the weakest of the Democrat nominees. Barack Obama has shown he cannot get the votes Democrats need to win blue-collar, working-class people ... He can get effete snobs, he can get wealthy academics, he can get the young and he can get the black vote, but Democrats do not win with that."
Hello, McFly! (Knocking on hollow wood to represent Limbaughs noggin.) Where have you been? Theres nothing ordinary about this election process. If youre basing your erred analysis on historical statistics, wake up and take a good look at the candidates. Neither are your usual presidential candidate types. Also, Americans are coming out in record numbers to be a part o this election cycle. McCain did not inspire that. Hillary may have lit a fire under some. But the motivational star of this election cycle is Barack Obama. Nothing about his rise translates to weakest link.
An idiot with a mic and audience is a disastrous thing. People listen to him, unfortunately. Limbaugh is credited with talking Republicans into crossing over and voting for Clinton as he had previously deemed her the weakest candidate in a general election match-up with McCain. Hes probably switching his stance simply to gauge his effect. Its too late in the game for his listeners to benefit Obama at all. Take your ego off the air, Limbaugh and make room for someone with some decency.
