From Human Events:
Battling Political Elitism with Rush LimbaughI completely agee. Read it all.
by Jedediah Bila
Rush Limbaugh routinely hits home runs when battling the Left’s intolerance, hypocrisy, and tax-and-spend agenda. But on October 1, he hit a grand slam against what’s eating away at the conservative movement right in our own backyard—political elitism.
Rush addressed his monologue “to those of you who are embarrassed of Sarah Palin and Christine O'Donnell and the Tea Party in general, Sharron Angle, maybe Carl Paladino rubs you the wrong way. You think they're nuts, they embarrass you. I mean they're conservatives and they're Republicans and so are you, but you think they're a little kooky. You don't even think they can win.”
He declared, “I want people who have lived lives, who have made mistakes, don't care who knows it, they've learned from them, they've made amends, and they have moved on with their lives. I'm tired, frankly, of Republicans throwing candidates under the bus for not being the political equivalent of Mother Teresa or not being professional enough to get elected.”
Amen to that.
Many of us have watched conservative big shots and members of the media elite lash out at Sarah Palin, Christine O’Donnell, Sharron Angle, and others. Why? It’s simple: Despite the fact that Palin, O’Donnell, and Angle sport strong conservative messages, those messages haven’t arrived in the conventional, Beltway-approved packages that appeal to many of Washington’s political elite.
