This will be brutal

From the guys over at Powerline -

So, if you've been following the political headlines, you'll have noticed that the Obama Administration has been trying to make Rush Limbaugh the face of the Evil Conservative Party That Stands In The Way Of Everything Good (tm).

Well, Mr. Limbaugh has accepted the challenge.

Any time here at the EIB Network studios. If you're too busy partying or flying around giving speeches and so forth, then send Vice President Biden. I'm sure he would be very capable of articulating your vision for America -- and if he won't work, send Geithner, and we can talk about the tax code. And if that won't work, go get Bob Rubin. I don't care. Send whoever you want if you can't make it. You don't need to be leaking stories to Politico like this thing that's published today. You don't need to have your allies writing op-eds and all the rest. If you can win at this, then come here and beat me at my own game, and get rid of me once and for all, and show all the people of America that I am wrong.

Mr. Limbaugh is an embodiment of the American Dream - starting from a middle class background to become THE force in talk radio. AM radio pretty much owes it's existence to the man, because he found an opportunity to fill a niche that was underserved. And that market has rewarded him for his excellence.

What has Mr. Obama done? Spoke some good words, but he hasn't done anything. He's never managed anything larger than a political race, and even then he didn't win because he was the best candidate, he won because he got the other guys booted off the ballot.

Mr. President, you've brought this on yourself.
