When Republicans say things like this about Limbaugh:

"Rush Limbaugh is meaningless to me," Tedisco told the editorial board of The Daily Star on Thursday.

I set my timer for 24 hours and wait to see if they'll bow down for forgiveness before the time is up. He beat the timer

That didn't take long. After saying "Rush Limbaugh is meaningless to me" on Thursday, Republican New York Assemblyman Jim Tedisco's camp walked back the statement on Friday.

Tedisco is facing off against Democrat Scott Murphy in the race for Sen. Kristen Gillibrand's (D-N.Y.) former House seat.

Here is the full statement from Tedisco spokesman Adam Kramer:

Jim's comments were in response to a question about what voters are asking him about on the campaign trail. So far, the concerns he has been hearing from voters on the campaign trail have been local in nature, such as his support for lower property taxes, fiscal responsibility, and his opponents appalling support for the AIG bonus loophole. That was his point and any effort to characterize it otherwise is a distortion of the facts.

Michael "crazy legs" Steele's job is on the line "some people say" if Tedisco loses this race in NY. Tedisco just took over his campaign because he was losing ground. The Big ReBowski rules once again and makes a Republican crumple before him.
