Holding Court

Rush Limbaugh wrote an amazing op-ed in the Wall Street Journal about how our party is stronger than ever. Here is the first paragraph and click the link to read the rest. Its encouraging!

"I love being a conservative. We conservatives are proud of our philosophy. Unlike our liberal friends, who are constantly looking for new words to conceal their true beliefs and are in a perpetual state of reinvention, we conservatives are unapologetic about our ideals. We are confident in our principles and energetic about openly advancing them. We believe in individual liberty, limited government, capitalism, the rule of law, faith, a color-blind society and national security. We support school choice, enterprise zones, tax cuts, welfare reform, faith-based initiatives, political speech, homeowner rights and the war on terrorism. And at our core we embrace and celebrate the most magnificent governing document ever ratified by any nation--the U.S. Constitution. Along with the Declaration of Independence, which recognizes our God-given natural right to be free, it is the foundation on which our government is built and has enabled us to flourish as a people."

Excellent article, I love the Wall Street Journal! I miss being in College and reading the free copies in the library basement in between studying for boring (as sin) accounting classes. Ahhh, the days of being a College student in Ol' Wis.

I'm just getting to know the WSJ and I like it! I think when Ranting Repubican moves in with me we'll have to get that delivered.

I get it everyday...and when they started the Saturday weekend edition a few weeks ago, I decided I was the biggest geek on the planet because that seriously made my Saturday morning when the puppy got me up so damn early. But I took him out, and there it was...with a ray of sunshine beaming down directly on it...The first-ever weekend edition.

Tori, since I refer to your sister as RR I was going to identify you as TT...but thought better of the idea. Looking for short cuts.

Loved Rush's column.

I just felt better after reading this article. I think that Harriet Miers should withdrawl her nomination and Georgie put up Janice Rogers Brown. A good ole filibuster brawl is just what the republican party needs!! We love a good fight and usually win!

If only that were true TT, I wish we did fight more often, the Dems are better at the dogfight than the Republicans ever are.

Gone are the days of Newt and shutting down the (useless) government.

People still listen to the drug-crazed Rush Limbaugh? Wow!

Here is a fun fact...

Rush Limbaugh once claimed that there is no evidence that nicotine is addictive.

I loved this article. I am a huge fan of Rush's but even I continue to be amazed at how articulate he is. I completely agreed with everything he said but ofcourse he said better than I could. Great Blog!!

Years after the Surgeon General released virtually a mountain of evidence that nicotine is not just addictive, but highly addictive, Rush said the following...

"It has not been proven that nicotine is addictive, the same with cigarettes causing emphysema." - Rush Limbaugh (Radio show, April 29 1994)

To be fair, Rush may have been high when he made the absurd claim that nicotine is not addictive.
