All across the political spectrum people totally hated it. Everyone but conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, that is. These are weird times.
Then there were three. Palin, Romney, and Huckabee. Which ticket do we like best for 2012? Palin/Huckabee? Palin/Romney? Are there any other viable combinations?
Incidentally, Rush Limbaugh did very well at the Conservative Political Action Conference. The transcript is here, and includes this wonderful joke to demonstrate how he is not pompous:
Larry King passed away, goes to heaven. He's greeted by Saint Peter at the gates. Saint Peter says, "Welcome, Mr. King, it's great to have you here. I want to show you around, give you an idea of what's here, maybe you can pick a place that you'd like to reside." King says, "I just have one question: Is Rush Limbaugh here?" "No, he's got a lot of time yet, Mr. King." So Saint Peter begins the tour. Larry King sees the various places and it's beyond anything we can imagine in terms of beauty. Finally, he gets to the biggest room of all, with this giant throne. And over the throne is a flashing beautiful angelic neon sign that says "Rush Limbaugh."Wouldn't it be hilarious if Limbaugh ends up on the 2012 ticket?
[Laughter] And Larry King looks at Saint Peter and says: "I thought you said he wasn't here." "He said, he's not, he's not. This is God's room. He just thinks he's Rush Limbaugh."
* Make that Piyush "Bobby" Jindal. Wouldn't it be great with a republican candidate with a name conservative America also can't pronounce?
