"I hope he fails."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.
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."
