Colin Powell Skewers Rush Limbaugh
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell tells the GOP it needs to stop listening to Rush Limbaugh.
I heard Rush yesterday refer to the "ChiComs," and it occured to me that there are millions of younger people who would have no idea what he meant by such a dated reference.
Rush's demographic skews so old and ideologically reactionary that he's speaking to the very minority that Powell says helped cost the GOP the presidency.
Neither Limbaugh or GOP leaders are likely to welcome Powell's advice, which, if you think about it, is really good for the country.
A marginalzied GOP helps keep Democrats in power and also keeps alive at least the chance for a progressive agend'a success.
Okay, I'll ask...What the heck is a "ChiCom?" I've never heard that term before in my life.
(And as I'm approaching 40, I appreciate being lumped in with "younger people!")
The rest of the world simply says China, or The People's Republic of China.
I swear 'ChiComs' actually meant "Chicago Communists" when I first read this...
Not Chicago Comisky?
(I thought it had something to do with Chicago, too - CHI is always the abbreviation for their sports teams, after all.) :)
The Limbaugh branch is irreconcilable with the Powell branch. They will only continue to squabble as the GOP self-destructs. Gotta credit that Limbaugh!! :)
Sigh wait until 2010 after the bloodbath of Obama tossing his left wing fringe under the bus. Then there is all the fall out from IL got to love Chicago politics
