What Rush Couldn't Do and Can't Do.
For all of his millions of listeners, and for the weeks and weeks spent on the air encouraging Republicans to switch sides and vote for Hillary in the primaries, Rush Limbaugh still couldn't turn the Republican tide in Hillary's favor. The Politico's Jeanne Cummings pointed out the other day, 62 percent of party switchers in Pennsylvania were coming out for Barack. Yesterday's exit polls confirmed this-- Obama got more support from former Republicans than Hillary did.
I tried listening to Rush yesterday. While millions of Pennsylvanians were out heading to the polls, there he was his entire show, still laughing about how he thought he was sabotaging the election. Rush doesn't appear to be breaking any laws, and can do whatever he wants, but it's pretty hard to listen to him and still think that he has the best interests of the U.S. in mind. A person who spends hours each day laughing about interfering with, or even just influencing, the democratic process has no respect for what we stand for. I really don't know why it's funny.
