I'm With Cheney On This One
In light of Steele's lackluster first hundred days as head of the GOP, we are reminded how "well" he fared when he decided to take on Rush Limbaugh. It seems to me that some people still seriously underestimate the influence Rush has on true Conservatives...
But not Dick Cheney...if there's one thing he hasn't been accused of being, it's dumb. Yesterday morning when asked about the "new Limbaugh vs. Powell feud", Cheney unequivocally sided with Rush over his ex-colleague:
"From the Sunday, May 10 Face the Nation:
BOB SCHIEFFER: Rush Limbaugh said the other day the that the party would probably be better off if Colin Powell left and just became a Democrat. Colin Powell said Republicans would be better off if they didn't have Rush Limbaugh speaking for them. Where do you come down?
DICK CHENEY: Well, if I had to choose, in terms of being a Republican, I'd go with Rush Limbaugh I think. My take on it was Colin had already left the party. I didn't know he was still a Republican.
SCHIEFFER: So you think that he's not a Republican?
CHENEY: I just noted he endorsed the Democratic candidate for President this time, Barack Obama. I assume that that's some indication of his loyalty and his interests.
SCHIEFFER: And you said you take Rush Limbaugh over Colin Powell?
CHENEY: I would, politically." (Newsbusters)
