David Limbaugh's Qualifications

At the bottom of every article at Townhall they put a little blurb that tells you about the author of the piece - here's David Limbaugh's.
David Limbaugh, brother of radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh, is an expert in law and politics and author of Bankrupt: The Intellectual and Moral Bankruptcy of Today's Democratic Party.
I like how they underline his qualifications in the correct order - certainly the fact that he's Rush Limbaugh's brother is number 1.

As for today's article, he shows the same gift for repetition that his brother has, albeit his repititions don't tend to be as entertaining. Basically his point is that we are in a war with terrorism and if you take it seriously you support President Bush. And if you don't agree with President Bush's take on how to win this war, you must not be taking it seriously.
What is profoundly disappointing is the growing number of Republican politicians who, apparently corrupted by beltway hubris and toxicity, have abandoned the mission just when it looks like we have captured momentum.

These tired elephants appear more concerned with achieving some abstract bipartisan consensus -- as if politicians rubbing each others' backs is a higher moral aspiration than protecting the nation -- than in dealing with the concrete threat of an enemy trying to subjugate and kill us. It's disgraceful.
Of course it's also disgraceful to blindly support a program that has already failed, particularly one in which so many are dieing, merely for political gain and an unwillingness to admit error.
