Rush admits he has been a water carrier for the RNC

November 9, 2006 | By | Reply More

Andrew Sullivan brought my attention to this startling 11/8/06 admission by Rush Limbaugh:

There have been a bunch of things going on in Congress, some of this legislation coming out of there that I have just cringed at, and it has been difficult coming in here, trying to make the case for it when the people who are supposedly in favor of it can’t even make the case themselves — and to have to come in here and try to do their jobs. I’m a radio guy! I understand what this program has become in America and I understand the leadership position it has. I was doing what I thought best, but at this point, people who don’t deserve to have their water carried, or have themselves explained as they would like to say things but somehow aren’t able to, I’m not under that kind of pressure.

My suggestion to Mr. Limbaugh:  then stop carrying water.  Don’t carry water for anyone.  We’ll all do better when we stop allowing our political party (or our religion) think for us.
