If you have seen the movie V for Vendetta(highly recommended), you would recognize in the movie some of the ideology of the last eight years. See link at the end of the article.
Anyone who knows me knows that I am not fond of the Republican Party. But that would be an afterthought compared to the antics of Rush Limbaugh. The Republican Party may rue the day that it embraced the radio commentator/comedian as the front man in the continuing battle against the Democrats. He now feels he is in control of the party. He is the puppet master, they are the puppets. His attacks on certain members for speaking out and defying him borders on comedy. Their weakness, like anyone else,is they want to keep their jobs. Rush's strength, he makes 40 million a year. Is that what the Republicans want, to be known synonymously with Rush?
Or is he just filling a vacuum of leadership? No disagrees that Rush has a knack with connecting with his listeners, for speaking for part of the population. He is smart, resourceful and can speak on a talking point forever. But he works from a bully pulpit which is not helpful to the overall population. You may intensely dislike the current administration and all it stands for, but they are what we have for now, and we have to forge ahead and get through this financial debacle.
Good luck ditto heads.
The following is an excerpt from, Wikepedia:
Roger Allam as Lewis Prothero: Lewis Prothero, "The Voice of London", is a mouthpiece for the Norsefire government. He was the former Commander of the Larkhill facility. He presented a show on the BTN. He was killed by V. He has been viewed as a parody of American right-wing pundits such as Bill O'Reilly, Morten Downey and Rush Limbaugh by critics and commentators.
