Conservative talk show hosts across the country -- some who are syndicated into some of the states who will be voting on VOTR (Vermont, Ohio, Texas, Rhode Island) Tuesday -- are encouraging Republicans to switch affiliations for the day to vote for Hillary Clinton in the hopes of "bloodying" Barack Obama and increasing their chances in November. Of course, led by Rush Limbaugh. From CNN.com:
"We need Barack Obama bloodied up politically. It's obvious that the Republicans are not going to do it, they don't have the stomach for it," Limbaugh continued. "As you probably know we're getting all kinds of memos from the RNC saying we're not going to be critical. Mark McKinnon of McCain's campaign said he'll quit if they get critical over Obama. This is the presidency of the United States we're talking about. I want our party to win I want the Democrats to lose.”
Things like this make me sick. Not the Rush Limbaugh doesn't typically make me sick -- but this kind of crap really chaps my rear end. It's not enough that Republicans "drove the bus into the ditch ..." -- it appears they intend to keep it there.
Is it fair to say Republicans are evil now?
