Limbaugh to Specter: Please Take McCain With You


rush-limbaughConservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh said yesterday that he isn’t sorry to see Arlen Specter leave the GOP – and that many Republicans wish the Pennsylvania senator would take a few others with him when he goes.
“A lot of people say, ‘Well, Specter, take [Sen. John] McCain with you. And his daughter [Meghan]. Take McCain and his daughter with you if you’re gonna…” he told listeners, dissolving in laughter.”…..It’s ultimately good. You’re weeding out people who aren’t really Republicans,” he said.

Limbaugh did concede the downside of Specter’s defection. “It makes the Senate essentially as big a slam dunk for Obama and the Democrats as the House of Representatives already is,” he said.

Earlier this month, Specter said Limbaugh did have a tendency to make “provocative” statements, but told radio host Howard Stern he didn’t have a problem with the conservative talker. “Do I like Limbaugh?… yeah, I like him,” he said then.

Late yesterday afternoon, Meghan McCain fired back on Twitter. She wrote: “RED TIL I’M DEAD BABY!!! I love the republican party enough to give it constructive criticism, I love my party and sure…not leavin!”

  1. terrible. this is how the new “spokesman” for the GOP treats the recent presidential nominee? Shameful. McCain considred switching parties in the after math of the 2000 race (when bush treated him like garbage) in the following few years he wanted to ally with his friend joe leiberman. But now? Its crazy that Limbaugh thinks the nominee mccain isnt republican enough , and now Mccain is even facing a challenger , a single issue candidate for the republican nomination for his senate reelction in 2010. thats right, McCain has his own Ned Lamont, from the right.

  2. Meghan McCain has more sound wisdom in her pinky nail than 20 rush ,imbaughs in his entire brain. Limbaugh and Hannity both need to be committed for flying off their handles lately.

  3. Enjoyed the comments from party line Democrats- makes reading interesting! McCain is a favorite of these, an asset to the party! Delicious fun to read, keep ’em coming!
