Do you see a pattern here? By my count at least three soft-spined GOP congressmen and the party's silly national chairman, Michael Steele, have abjectly recanted their careless remarks about their father-confessor. Do you find it odd that a political party that boasts of its supreme muscle against foreign enemies cannot challenge a reckless propagandist who earns millions of dollars by tossing reality to the winds? Think about that the next time one of these fake warriors proposes to blow up Iran or North Korea.

Congressman begging forgiveness
ADD REP. TODD TIAHRT of Kansas to the growing list of enfeebled Republican supplicants at the knees of Rush Limbaugh. Tiahrt foolishly crossed the line by suggesting that Rushbo, the party's vengeful valedictorian, was nothing more than an entertainer and hardly the de facto leader of the Republican Party. You can imagine how that sat with the forever swarming Dittoheads. Within 24 hours, Tiahrt's office issued a self-flagellating statement insisting that no insults were intended and that the"congressman believes Rush is a great leader of the conservative movement in America...Nothing the congressman said diminished the role Rush has played and continues to play in the conservative movement." In a few apologetic words, Tiahrt elevated Limbaugh from fictitious de facto leader to a great leader to have the congressman's name removed from Limbaugh's enemies list.
