Rush Tries to Have it Both Ways

I'm still incredulous that my favorite talk radio host Rush Limbaugh continues to suffer from McCain Derangement Syndrome. Now he's saying he's helping John McCain by criticizing him:

"If I really wanted to torpedo McCain, I would endorse him,"
Limbaugh said on his radio show. "Because that would send the independents and
liberals who are going to vote for him running away faster than
"What people don't realize is that I am doing McCain the biggest
favor that can be done for him by staying out of this," he continued. "If I
endorsed him thoroughly and with passion, that would end the independents and
moderates, because they so despise me and they so hate me."

All this sounds familiar, like when Hillary Clinton took credit for the improved situation in Iraq by saying it was because her Party threatened to pull out the troops. Forget the sacrifices of our brave men and women in uniform and how their mission was made that much harder when the terrorists had hopes we would cut and run prematurely.

Rush is trying to have it both ways as well, but he's only making the Right's chances tougher in the Fall, by giving the Leftist Media ammunition to use against our candidate, which ever day appears to be McCain. And instead of attacking the Dems' frontrunner, which now looks like Barak Obama, on his ties to Muslims, inexperience, and lack of substance, we are fighting one another.

Come off it, Rush! Admit you were wrong and stop going after the wrong side. Don't be like the Left and dig in your heels, no matter what the cost to our future security.
