HuffPo has already covered it, but hey, folks, it bears repeating as often as possible: Rush Limbaugh can’t take what he gives. In a fight, a real, honest, straight-up fight, by which I mean two enter but only one walks away, Rush would be the one on his knees, begging for….

I don’t think this means the end of the Right as we’ve so long known it; it might mean, though, that we’ve finally struck them where it hurts.
