Levin, Limbaugh Offer Ridiculous Logic To Defend Republicans' Chances This November
Radio clown Mark Levin was in rare form on tonight's rant.
Levin and guest David Limbaugh agreed that the agenda advocated by conservative talkers -- President Bush's agenda -- wasn't going to attract "any moderates or liberals."
Levin added, with typical hyperbolic flourish, that conservative Republicans didn't need support from "mental patients" (aka moderates and liberals) to retain control of the House and Senate.
The rant might rally the troops. But their logic is ridiculous. A look at polls over the past 10 days show Bush's agenda had an approval rating of 37% to 44% -- an average of 40.4%.
Only someone in the conservative media would suggest that's enough to win elections.
As JABBS has noted, some Republican politicians have distanced themselves from Bush, while others are running advertisements that fail to mention Bush or which imply that they are not running on Bush's agenda. Hardly a vote of confidence.
Republicans may wind up retaining control of the House and/or Senate. But it certainly won't be for the reasons laid out by Levin and Limbaugh.
