Credibility you can trust, my friends
Media Matters: Limbaugh on Specter leaving GOP: "A lot of people -- Specter, take McCain with you, and his daughter"
My regular visitors are no doubt aware of the soft spot in my otherwise-anthracite heart that I have for certain media figures, in this case my pal noted radio funnyman, narcotics-addicted sex tourist and itinerant head of the Republican party Rush Limbaugh, whose ribald japery has done ever so much to enrich the cognitive landscape of political thought.
According to this malignant genius of the lamp, the recent Specter defection has created a kerfuffle of sorts within certain circles.
Frankly, Mr. Specter's somewhat opportunistic realignment is transparent enough to put into a wooden frame and face it south so the houseplants can grow, and it is unlikely that the American Democratic party will get 'value for money' when one takes more than a cursory glance at Specter's public kabuki vs. his actual voting record...But cheap points are always welcome in some quarters where actual relevance is of minor import.
That said, this sort of fluffy frippery is addlepated even by the usual standards of contrived outrage that our Viagra-poisoned jolly fellow has set.
The very thought of John McCain becoming a member of the opposition party in his country and supporting even one of their core objectives is only matched in ludicrousness by the notion that some within that party would welcome him with open legs...and were this to occur would be the final sign that creeping moral relativism has finally triumphed over the need to maintain the fiction of a consistent ideology in 'those United States'.
