Rush Limbaugh Confirms An Old Suspicion

On Greta Van Susteren's program yesterday evening, Rush Limbaugh revealed something about establishment Republicans that I have long suspected and have told people privately for a long time.

He was at a party attended by a bunch of GOP bigwigs (at the Hamptons), when a man came up to him and said, "What are we going to do about these Christians in the Republican Party? They're killing us!"

Rush responded with incredulity, saying quite rightly that this man was dismissing 25 million voters with such a statement. They discussed the reasons that the man felt that way, but the key thing is that this attitude was held.

I've said for years that the Eastern Establishment GOP has long yearned for Christian influence in the party to wane, and that might well cause them to help sabotage truly conservative candidates.

Well, they could well be about to get their wish, and then some. Just wait until they've lived through an Obama Administration and a radical left Congress for a few years.

I started watching that interview and went to bed. I definitely missed that one.

Wow! And I thought WE were the bigots.

No great surprise there. The Stupid Party is as big and varied as the Evil Party. Rockefeller R.s are not Goldwater R.s are not Jerry Falwell R.s.

Sloughing off evangelical Christians would let the ECE R.s get by with not doing anything about a host of social issues they don't truly care about either way.

Living through an Obama administration will not be as bad as having to live through a Huckabee administration.

Don't be ridiculous, tip top.

Unless there's a miracle, you'll find out just how bad things will get with Obama in power and a far-left Congress.
