Can’t Stop Talking About Rush
Americans United for Change is going up with radio ads targeting four House Republicans in districts that voted for President Obama: Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mich.), Rep. Dave Reichert (R-Wash.), Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Penn.), and Rep. Mike Castle (R-DGreg Sargent has details. Meanwhile, Jeri “wife of Fred” Thompson tries to push the “Democratic distraction” meme:
It’s great that maestros of slime like Begala, Carville and Greenberg (What? Did Sidney Blumenthal miss the reunion lunch?) are able to get their young Bartlebys in the press to trumpet in breathless tones their genius for having President Obama and the House and Senate Democrats target Rush as the centerpiece of their “distract America campaign.” But like their “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” campaign back in 1993-1994, “Rush is the Republican Party” will backfire by ultimately re-booting the conservative movement.
The phrase “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” actually came four years later, during the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Really, it’s stuff like this that convinces Democrats to keep pushing the Rush meme.
