Voice from inside the Republican mind:
Limbaugh gives a speech. Conservative Rod Dreher sees it
as bad for Republicans (and conservatives). Random blogger Robert Stacey McCain takes issue, supports Limbaugh, and writes
If Rod Dreher wants to join Andrew Sullivan and David Brock ... in the ranks of the vaunting army outside the camp, let him go over and be gone. But don't sit pouting inside the camp, giving aid and comfort to the adversary by your demoralizing pronouncements.
This Limbaugh phenomenon is looking like it will bring big dividends to Democrats. The Republican party may very well shrink another 20% if this keep on.
As the Republican party shrinks, Limbaugh looms larger and larger, like a fatted bottom feeding carp in a small pond, without any place to go, wallowing in the mud.
Well, most of the Republican shrinkage will be taken up the Libertarian Party and such. A good thing for the Democrats (remember what the Green Party did to us in 2000) but still not THAT big of an advantage.
