As I pointed out at another better blog, there is an easy fix for any Republican who doesn't like the whole Rush Limbaugh leadership meme:
"I won't contradict Rush Limbaugh directly by name because people who do that have their phone lines jammed for three days, six hundred calls an hour, and I have neither the staff nor the stomach for that kind of attention. My constituents are my primary concern and responsibility, not the members of an admittedly devoted national radio audience."
Then of course, you'll have to turn off your phone for three days. Really.
How hard was that? Well, you would have to be honest to say that. Nevermind.
Gawd. I'm underpaid, and I wouldn't take money to make them look good anyway.
