Rush Limbaugh – Mike Huckabee Kerfuffle
While I was spending the day trying to avoid sunburn whilst sipping rum punch, much of the blogosphere was apparently embroiled in a set-to between conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh and insurgent presidential aspirant Mike Huckabee.
Apparently, Huckabee once wrote a book enjoining people to “listen to less talk radio” and someone vaguely associated with has campaign said that Limbaugh doesn’t like the Huckster because “Rush doesn’t think for himself.”
Limbaugh responded with an on-air tirade likening Huckabee to the Clintons and Ross Perot and noted that he “hadn’t heard of Huckabee in any serious manner before this campaign began” and that “McCain’s starting to look better to than this guy.”
In the spirit of party comity, let me just say that they’re both right.
