Rush Limbaugh has taken a week’s vacation.
Twenty million Americans are twitching.
Nervous as well is the rest of the population that comprises almost half the country if not an actual majority. The liberal rest-of-the-crowd is sighing with relief, although considerably tensed at the realization President Limbaugh…sorry, Mr. Limbaugh…will in fact return.
Let not your heart be troubled. With America’s real opposition leader recharging, a transfer of power has gone into effect and Vice President Hannity…ahhh, sorry, that would be Mr. Hannity…has the radio (and TV) reins. America will still be learning the truth.
Somewhere, his golden voice silenced on the evening news at a ridiculously young age of 65, a now 93-year-old Walter Cronkite is surely fuming. It wasn’t supposed to be like this.
This all began when President Obama, barely ensconced in the Oval Office, snapped to Republicans on Capitol Hill that “you can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done.” Really? The example of the legendary CBS television anchor Walter Cronkite says otherwise. Cronkite’s example is an intriguing piece of history that should in fact cause a shiver to run through the Obama White House.
