Rahm Emanuel: Limbaugh is the voice of the GOP

This is a brilliant strategy. take the blowhard and ram him down their throats. The Republican party is already fracturing and plenty of those in it don’t like Limbaugh.

Making Limbaugh the focal point virtually guarantees more splits and fissures, and increasing internal wars among Republicans.

      Limbaugh directly challenged a president. No head of state on the planet would let something that pass without response.
