King of the GOP
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- In comments that were broadcast over the weekend, Republican Party Chairman Michael Steele called Rush Limbaugh's rhetoric "incendiary" and "ugly" and insisted that he is in charge of the GOP.
On Monday, however, after a blistering response from the conservative talk-radio kingpin, Steele told the online journal Politico that he "was maybe a little bit inarticulate."
"There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership," Steele said. He added, "There are those out there who want to look at what he's saying as incendiary and divisive and ugly. That's what I was trying to say. It didn't come out that way."
So, there was a stand off between Michael Steele - leader of the Republican Party - and Rush Limbaugh - entertainment clown - and Steele blinked and Rush was crowned King. Tis a shame that this is the level to which the Party of Lincoln has devolved.
Hail, Limbaugh, last King of the GOP.
