Democrats have painted the Republican Party into a corner... Well, more like pinning them under the weight of polarizing gabber Rush Limbaugh. The GOP is flummoxed -- most of all their leader. Despite describing himself as "The Last Man Standing," he insists those in the White House made him the nation's top Republican, just to tear him down.
Sorry, but as powerful and persuasive as President Obama is, he doesn't decide who runs the Republican Party; the Republicans do. And they're voting with their feet as each and every one of them who offends 'El Rushbo' has to go and beg for his forgiveness. (And yet they talk about Democrats worshiping Obama...)
Nevertheless, Rush went on a self-pitying spiel about being on an "enemies list," trying to conjure up images of Obama as a modern day paranoid Nixon. Nice try, but no cigar.
But he did come up with a pretty brilliant rejoinder: challenging the President to a debate.
Of course, it would have to take place on his show, which wouldn't hurt in expanding the ratings past the party faithful, if only for a day. He even offered to lend him his private jet to fly down to his "Excellency In Broadcasting" studio in sunny Palm Beach.
Following a rant on the topics he'd like to discuss (the "I Hope He Fails" greatest hits collection), Rush laid it out like this:
If you can win at this, then come here and beat me at my own game, and get rid of me once and for all, and show all the people of America that I am wrong.
