Into Battle with David Limbaugh

David Limbaugh's latest article is called "To Your Battle Stations, Conservatives." Who exactly are conservatives going to attack and how are they going to attack them? Well they are going to attack liberals and Barack Obama and they are going to attack them by criticizing them (and slandering them as well). Yeah that's not exactly warfare.

In fairness, I do pretty much the same thing (I try not to slander people), but I don't call my lap top a "battle station."

Anyway let's get to the meat of the article.
True conservatives out there -- however many remain -- must not forget the ominous words of Obama's chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, who said: "Rule one: Never allow a crisis to go to waste. They are opportunities to do big things."

Perhaps this statement was not as sexy for sound bite purposes as Obama's cavalier remark to Joe the Plumber that we need to spread the wealth around a little bit. But it is even more revealing.

Sure, much has been stated about Emanuel's comment, but not nearly enough. For in all the media-generated excitement over Obama's pecs and the faux conservative approval of Obama's "moderate" appointments, it appears we have failed to grasp the significance of this revelation.
Pretty hilarious watching a big Bush supporter complain about a President taking advantage of a crisis. Or a conservative for that matter. We all remember what the days after 9/11 were like. People came together and Bush rammed through his agenda, including eventually invading Iraq. Limbaugh didn't have a problem with President Bush using 9/11 to push his agenda; but then again, Limbaugh agrees with Bush's agenda.
