Laughing at Limbaugh

Clinton in cahoots with Rush Limbaugh. Operation Chaos. That struck me as one of the most absurd things ever to happen. And the fact that Clinton did nothing to counter it also was absurd, albeit depressing. Now that Operation Chaos failed to produce what Limbaugh hoped, Limbaugh's flip-flopping:

"I now believe he would be the weakest of the Democrat nominees," Limbaugh, among the most powerful voices in conservative radio, said on his program. "I now urge the Democrat supereldegates to make your mind up and publicly go for Obama."

"Barack Obama has shown he cannot get the votes Democrats need to win – blue-collar, working class people," Limbaugh also said. "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."
What a joke! Limbaugh first tells Republicans to cross over, participate in Democratic Primaries, and vote for Clinton. Now, he's telling Democratic superdelegates to choose Obama! And he's using the same rationale that Clinton is using: Obama can't get the "blue-collar, working class people." Does Rush Limbaugh think we're that stupid? Does he think this is some kind of reverse psychology thing? Limbaugh is clinical. Anything that comes out of his mouth is intened to serve only one cause: vilifying liberals and keeping the Democrats out of power. So he wants Democrats to pick Obama because he thinks Obama is the weakest candidate? Well, if Limbaugh is trying to convince Democrats that Obama is the weakest candidate against the GOP, you can bank on Obama being the strongest candidate. Limbaugh is absolutely terrified of an Obama candidacy and is doing whatever he can, including advancing Hillary Clinton's arguments once again, to try to prevent Obama's nomination. He thinks that if he puts the Limbaugh kiss of death on Obama, he will frighten Democratic superdelegates into choosing Clinton, whom he has said repeatedly in the past would be the easiest to defeat. I laugh at Limbaugh. And I hope he gets what he now apparently wants: an Obama candidacy.
