The Silliness Continues

The Democrats’ strategy of diverting attention from their failures with attacks on Rush Limbaugh continues. They have been holding a contest among the party faithful; the Democrats intend to erect an anti-Rush billboard “where Rush can’t miss it,” which I assume means near his home or studio in Florida. Today the Democratic Party sent out an email saying that they have received “tens of thousands” of submissions. These are the five finalists:

“Americans didn’t vote for a Rush to failure”

“Hope and change cannot be Rush’d”

“Failure is not an option for America’s future”

“We can fix America, just don’t Rush it”

“Rush: Say yes to America”

Wow. I’d hate to see the other entries.

It’s quite remarkable that the Democratic Party, with guidance from the White House, is running this silly campaign against a private citizen. Can you imagine the Republican Party, on instructions from President Bush, erecting anti-Michael Moore billboards near his home? No, neither can I. Nor can I imagine the outcry from the Democrats had the Bush administration done such a thing.
