Welcome to Planet Clueless

In 2006, Rush Limbaugh claimed he'd been "liberated" from his role as GOP stooge. Now, he's the freaking party's de facto leader, declaring once again, at CPAC, that he wants Obama to fail.

This is good for the Democrats. In the words of Rahm Emmanuel on "Face the Nation":

He's asked for President Obama and called for President Obama to fail. That's his view. And that's what he has enunciated. And whenever a Republican criticizes him, they have to run back and apologize to him and say they were misunderstood. He is the voice and the intellectual force and energy behind the Republican Party. He has been up front about what he views and hasn't stepped back from that, which is he hopes for failure. He said it and I compliment him for his honesty. But that's their philosophy that is enunciated by Rush Limbaugh and I think that's the wrong philosophy for America....

When a Republican did attack him he clearly had a turn-around and comeback and basically said that he apologized and was wrong. I think do think he's an intellectual force, which is why the Republicans pay such attention to him.

Earth to GOP! Earth to GOP! Didn't Limbaugh's blatherings about Michael J. Fox cost you guys a senate seat in Missouri?

Something tells me that the party's going to get their asses kicked yet again in 2010. Suppose the Republicans are down to 35 Senate seats and 150 House seats by 2011. Will they get a clue then?
