And in this corner ... Rush Limbaugh vs Barack Obama

Early in his administration, President Barack Obama called out conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh. Rush didn't blink and he didn't back down. And last night, Rush Limbaugh won:
"I hope he fails."

With those famous four words, uttered January 16, 2009 -- only days before Barack Obama was to be inaugurated -- Rush Limbaugh drew a line in the sand.

And as a result, this morning it is Rush Limbaugh who is the undisputed winner of the 2010 election. The White House is repudiated. The Pelosi-run House of Representatives, supported by the Democrats' Congressional Campaign Committee, also deliberately targeted Limbaugh. Speaker Pelosi is, abruptly, now history. The Senate is richer by a still-undetermined number of conservatives as this goes to Internet press.

You might even call last night's landslide results a "Rushslide."
That's the power of standing firm for principles and beliefs, and Rush knew that. Republicans have been given a second chance in the election of 2010. "Rushslide." Heh. Now it's time to roll up our sleeves and get to work.

Read the transcript or watch the video of Rush Limbaugh's 2009 CPAC speech that started it all.
