Keep it up, Rush*

How can a president nominate such a candidate [as Sonia Sotomayor]? And how can a party get behind such a candidate? That's what would be asked if somebody were foolish enough to nominate David Duke or pick somebody even less offensive.
That would be David Duke, who recently attended a holocaust denial conference in Tehran at the invitation of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Every one of these tasty little nuggets** will get wide attention and lots and lots of people are under the impression — mistaken or not — that Rush Limbaugh speaks officially for the Republican Party.

And all those official Republicans didn't help by apologizing to him.

* Here's how, and where.

** Which reminds me. The other day a guy on Wisconsin Ave. offered to trade me a whole box of ten Chicken McNuggets for a cigarette. I didn't accept, but it seemed like a square deal health-wise.
