In case anyone did not already know, Rush Limbaugh is not the only blowhard, lying wingnut in his family. His brother, David Limbaugh was a guest on C-SPAN's Washington Journal this Saturday morning. Apparently he is not getting quite enough help
Ezra Klein Says The GOP Believes In Their Own Rhetoric And President Romney Will Immediately Sign Ryan Budget
In a discussion of whether Republicans actually believe their rhetoric, Ezra Klein reminds the panel that if Romney wins the Presidential Election, that indicates a toppling of the electorate that assumes a Republican House and Senate as well.

Reince Priebus Does His Best To Put A Positive Spin On Current GOP Presidential Field And Herman Cain Straw Poll Win In Florida

Kristol And Hayes Agree It Would Be Good For GOP Presidential Candidates To Run On 'Entitlement Reform'
Another Sunday, another week where Bloody Bill Kristol proves himself to be wrong about everything. After some discussion on whether President Obama is going to have trouble being reelected and The Hill's A.B. Stoddard pointing out that he might unless he ends up being fortunate enough to run against someone who voted for Paul Ryan's budget plan, Bret Baier asks Kristol if the GOP would make make "reforming" "entitlements" into an asset.
