Rush Job: Inside Dems’ Limbaugh plan
By: Jonathan Martin

Top Democrats believe they have struck political gold by depicting Rush Limbaugh as the new face of the Republican Party, a full-scale effort first hatched by some of the most familiar names in politics and now being guided in part from inside the White House.

The strategy took shape after Democratic strategists Stanley Greenberg and James Carville included Limbaugh’s name in an October poll and learned their longtime tormentor was deeply unpopular with many Americans, especially younger voters. Then the conservative talk-radio host emerged as an unapologetic critic of Barack Obama shortly before his inauguration, when even many Republicans were showering him with praise.

Hillary as the Messiah?

BHO & Gov. Richardson

With Hillary Clinton loosing support this week in spite of Barack Obama’s unimpressive attempt to explain how for 20 years he Saw no evil, Heard no evil or Spoke no evil while in the front row of Rev. Wright’s church, things are going from bad to worse for the Senator from New York.  Now we have James Carville invoking Biblical imagery just in time for Easter. (I thought S.P’s were all about the separation of church and state?) I digress, Carville has his shorts in a twist because the newly bearded Gov. Richardson just endorsed Barack Obama over his former bosses’ wife.  (Maybe he read the recently released calendar & papers from the former First Lady and realized that sleeping in the White House off and on for 8 years does not make you qualified to be President.) Like they say “Down Maine”, “My cat can have kittens in the oven, but that don’t make them biscuits!”

Back to Carville, here’s his take on the matter:

The reaction of some of Mr. Clinton’s allies suggests that might have been a wise decision. “An act of betrayal,” said James Carville, an adviser to Mrs. Clinton and a friend of Mr. Clinton. “Mr. Richardson’s endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic,” Mr. Carville said, referring to Holy Week.  (NYT)

Now I know James worked real hard to help get Bill elected back in ’92 & ’96 and he no doubt is quite close to Hillary and apparently, to extend the imagery, views her as messiah.  Whether it is out of fear or loyalty, he is backing her this time.  However, Mr. Carville, I know Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ is a friend of mine, and Hillary sir, is no Jesus Christ.  But I can see how Carville would lay the Judas card on Richardson, I just hope he will be as creative with all those former Bill Clinton supporters that are scurrying off the S.S. Hillary as it takes on water.  Gov. Richardson got to his life boat, and sat right next to John Kerry & Ted Kennedy (Now Mr. Carville, That’s Irony.)
