Head of GOP Michael Steele on Rush Limbaugh

Thanks to flopping Aces.

Michael Steele agrees with Rush Limbaugh.

Rush has said hundreds of times over the years that he is NOT the leader of the Republican party nor does he speak for it and is quick to point out that he is the leader of the conservative movement if anything, but an entertainer first.

The Democrat(ic) party continues to assert that Limbaugh is the head of the GOP in order to justify attacking a private citizen.

As Jonathan Krohn once said... "the Republican party is the shell on the outside, conservatism is the filling on the inside."

UPDATE: Steele apologizes to Limbaugh for his comments
My intent was not to go after Rush - I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh. I was maybe a little bit inarticulate...There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership." -Michael Steele RNC Chairman

That conservative filling IS led by Rush Limbaugh.

The controversy about Michael Steele and Rush Limbaugh (who I don't really particularly listen to anymore) is more than about Rush. When the liberal talk show host said that CPAC looked like a bunch of Nazis Michael Steele nodded in agreement.

Some said his nodding wasn't in agreement with that statement but still at the very least he was quiet and did not speak out against that outrageous statement.

This is more than about Rush the person. This was about the speech he gave and if you listened to the speech and agree with it then it is not only Rush but you, and all other grassroots conservatives that Michael Steele has rebuked in the harshest of terms.

Well, if that is the way the "leader" of the GOP feels about me then I say no, no, no, not God Bless the GOP, GOD DAMN the GOP. It isn't the party I thought I knew!
