Earl Ofari Hutchinson, political analyst and social issues commentator, posting on Huffpo:
The Surge is Working
President Obama and the Democrats should wave the white flag in their strawman war on Rush Limbaugh. The Media Research Center delivered the grim casualty figures for the Democrats. Since January, the top talk show gabber's ratings have soared off the charts. Radio affiliates that carry Limbaugh's syndicated show call the ratings boost he's gotten from the Democrat's orchestrated attack on him a "dramatic surge." This writer predicted as much when President Obama cracked to Congressional Republicans in late January that they should knock off listening to Limbaugh if they expected to get anything done in Congress and with his administration.Again, I repost this bastardization of a Charlie Brown cartoon strip:
I expect that Conservative Republicans that speak and act according to the principles of conservatism rather than the tenets of wussie-ism would receive a similar result, not by the MSM or popular talking heads (neither does Limbaugh), but by those same regular people who are listening to Rush. Or Ronald Reagan.
