It’s an intervention, not a conspiracy: an open letter to the Republican leadership.

Don’t think of this fuss with Rush Limbaugh as a conspiracy or a distraction.  It’s an intervention brought to you by  The Huffington Post, Bob Cesca, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and many others.  You have been addicted to Rush Limbaugh for 20 years, and are in serious denial.  It’s time to fight the addiction, even if it means your going through withdrawal. Maybe, this is what Michael Steele meant when he recommended a 12 point plan.

You became addicted in the way that most addictions began.  You enjoyed Rush, and perhaps you thought the addiction actually made you stronger.  Most importantly, you thought you were in control.  But it is always the addiction that takes control.

Rush has always been poison, both for you and for the body politic.  The addiction hurt your ability to think clearly and to deal with the day-to-day problems of governance.  Your addiction to Rush makes you look foolish and ignorant.  And it has even hurt your ability to do simple math.  How many of you think that Rush has 20 million different listeners? He has 4 million listeners per day, which is very different.  (If this doesn’t make sense to you, ask a moderate to explain it to you.)   Most importantly, your addiction seems to have done serious damage to your spine.

To give up the addiction, you don’t need to give up Rush entirely.  You just need to see him for what he is, and stop caring so deeply what he thinks about you.

Giving up the addiction will be hard.  Rush will stomp his feet, and shout, and scream, and he will call for his ditto-heads to annoy you. And there will be times when you are tempted to slip back into addiction.   But you need to give up the addiction in order to survive.  Your health and your spine are in grave danger, but you can get better once you admit the truth.

As a final note, the ditto-heads are not the base of your party.  Do you really think that the base of your party is so devoid of independent thought that they have decided to let Rush do their thinking for them?    I know your self-esteem is at a low point, but you are a better party than that.

  1. Dick Barr Says:

    Jim,

    You have been drinking too much of the Jonestown Kool-Aid, my friend. Our president is in way over his head (especially without the Soros-streaming teleprompters) and is no match for Rush in the logic, values, and good-humor departments. The only hope for your CREF is for Comrade BO to not talk about the economy for awhile, since he is clearly clueless about economics.

    Wishing you all the best,
    Dick
