Well its official, Rush Limbaugh is now officially a “centrist” , meaning he’s nothing because he referred to those didn’t vote for the two major party candidates, all one percent of us, as “wackos” in this Wall Street Journal editorial page article (and no Dittoheads we didn’t take it out of context. He said it and he means it.) He believes that people who voted for Chuck Baldwin, Ron Paul and Bob Barr are just as nutty as Nader and or McKinney.
What this means is quite simple. “Mr Conservative” thinks authentic conservatives like Rev. Baldwin are nuts. He and other big name talk show hosts have joined “sensible center” or the better yet the social democratic establishment and has set the parameters for who can be supported and who is a “wacko” And ladies and Gentlemen, we’re on the outside looking in.
So I propose that Mr. Limbaugh drop any pretentions calling himself a “conservative” and refer to himself for what he is: a centrist. Instead of the EIB Network’s Advanced Institute for Conservative Studies, we can have the EIB Instititue for Wishy-Washy Self-Positioning along the Chagining Tides of the Zeitgeist. Instead of being the “Conservative Voice of Freedom,” he can be the “Moderate Voice for the Establishment.” At least he would be most honest with himself and his listeners instead of calling actual conservatives “wackos.”
Judge for yourself: Here’s Chuck’s latest column. See if you can feel the wackiness.
