Rush Limbaugh: Republican leader

From Politico : Steele to Rush: I'm Sorry

Not long ago, Michael Steele tried to assert that he was the leader of the RNC (a role which is supposed to be his) over Rush Limbaugh, a ... man... quickly becoming the voice of the current Republican party. What we've learned in this short time since this story first broke is both sad and mind-blowingly funny.

Rush Limbaugh is in fact the leader of the Republican party. The evidence is strong as Steele begs for his dark master's forgiveness for his error of daring to question the will of Jabba the Rush.
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele says he has reached out to Rush Limbaugh to tell him he meant no offense when he referred to the popular conservative radio host as an “entertainer” whose show can be “incendiary.” “My intent was not to go after Rush – I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh,” Steele said in a telephone interview. “I was maybe a little bit inarticulate. … There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.”
And Steele outright admits that Limbaugh's in control. The Republican party has completely abandoned the idea of a big tent, and instead opted for a circus tent.
