Looks like Rush “Porkulus” Limbaugh is the official leader of the Conservative Republicans. This is a branch of the GOP that embraces wholeheartedly, the failed Reagan economic policies. These members live in the past. If the year was 1776, we would recognize them as “Loyalists“.
Tom Watson from the Huffington Post… has this to say:
If there’s any doubt that the GOP’s own Paulie Walnuts is now firmly in command of the Party of Lincoln, the “breaking news” style coverage of Limbaugh’s bellow-cose rant dispelled the notion. CNN, for one, went wide – with the kind of uninterrupted live footage usually reserved for Presidents and Popes, followed by a panel of analysts to weigh and consider the import of the speech to this republic of ours. There were other dancers on the stage, to be sure – including Ward Connerly, Ann Coulter, Phyllis Schlafly and Karl Rove – but only Limbaugh’s hour-long ramble (he went over by 30 minutes) garnered opposition leader status. “As the movement searches for a front-and-center spokesman to provide inspiration and direction, Limbaugh’s refusal to tilt toward the center may place him out front in a Republican Party already suffering from a disappearing moderate wing,” wrote Tom Schaller in Salon.
It’s a sad state of affairs when the Republican Conservatives choose a show biz, undereducated narcissist to lead them over the abyss. Get out of their way. Just bring the popcorn, sit back and watch them implode.
Rush Limbaugh is no Ben Franklin. Rush lacks curiousity whereas Franklin was curious about everything.
Porkulus is a phony word just like Limbaugh is a phony leader. He is a coward that didn’t have the courage to serve our nation during the Vietnam war unlike his father who served in WWII. The word porkulus is a proper description for someone like Rush. Someone that only cares about himself and the big money that he makes while inciting people to hate Americans. Another description for Rush would be anti-American or anti-Patriot. He would have been known as a “Loyalist” which is the opposite of a Patriot. No wonder he doesn’t know the difference between the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. A Loyalist would only understand loyalty to a king and in Rush’s case the king is Ronald Reagan.
