Rush Limbaugh feels "liberated" by the election results, as do many Americans. Limbaugh, however, offered this tepid excuse for his pre-election support for the GOP:
I no longer am going to have to carry the water for people who I don't think deserve having their water carried. Now, you might say, "Well, why have you been doing it?" Because the stakes are high. Even though the Republican Party let us down, to me they represent a far better future for my beliefs and therefore the country's than the Democrat [sic] Party and liberalism does.
Andrew Sullivan nails Rush for intellectual dishonesty:
Awwww. I'm so sorry Limbaugh had to lie through his teeth to try and keep in the good graces of his Republican masters.
If only more people did the same, our political discourse would be greatly improved.
Joe Gandelman at The Moderate Voice has a list of people who repudiate Rush's water-carrying.
