Dem Plan Against Limbaugh: Will it Work?

The Democrats strategy to target Rush Limbaugh individually was hashed out last fall, according to Politico. Yes, Rush is a polarizing figure and yes, it is a distraction from Democrat plans to revolutionize the economy to socialism, but if I'm a betting man, I would put my money on Rush in the long run. There is a good reason he has 20 million listeners and it's growing every day - 20 second media soundbites make him sound fringe, but listeners to his program understand he is a refreshing dose of common sense. And if his audience grows to 25, 30 million, I think that can only help the country in the long run.

Rush challenges Obama to an on-air debate, man to man. I would love to see it, but even Obama is not that stupid. Rush would mop the floor with him.
