Rush Limbaugh admits to “carrying the water” for Republicans


At approximately 1:14 p.m. Central time today Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show…

“The way I feel is this: I feel liberated, and I’m going to tell you as plainly as I can why. I no longer am going to have to carry the water for people who I don’t think deserve having their water carried. Now, you might say, “Well, why have you been doing it?” Because the stakes are high! Even though the Republican Party let us down, to me they represent a far better future for my beliefs and therefore the country’s than the Democrat [sic] Party does and liberalism…

“I’m a radio guy! I understand what this program has become in America and I understand the leadership position it has. I was doing what I thought best, but at this point, people who don’t deserve to have their water carried, or have themselves explained as they would like to say things but somehow aren’t able to? I’m not under that kind of pressure.”

DailyKos… from which this story was pulled had this to say in response…

“To have Rush say that this thing went off the rails 4 years ago, and that he’s been covering for it all this time is kind of shameful. I wonder what else Rush really wanted to speak out about, but didn’t? Did he REALLY think Abu Ghraib was just a fraternity prank, or was he carrying water? Does he really think there’s a liberal media, or does he just need to make the whole thing up to keep Republicans in power? Hell, maybe he thinks Donovan McNabb is really a great quarterback! We’ll never know, because we can never be sure of when Rush is telling us what he REALLY thinks, or when he’s telling us what he thinks we need to hear. I’ve never really known a pundit that was willing to come right out and say “I’m full of shit.””
