Second prize ... two weeks!

From the "I'm not making this up" file:

The Democratic Party, with the tacit consent of the Obama administration, has locked their phasers on Rush Limbaugh in hopes of discrediting the popular conservative talk-show host. Again, I'm not making this up.

As part of Operation Rushbo, the Dems plan to purchase anti-Rush billboard space, and they conducted a survey to pick the best phrase to use.

And the winner is:

Americans Didn't Vote for a RUSH to failure.

To paraphrase W.C. Fields, if this was the winning phrase, the losers must have been whoppers indeed.

Setting aside the ridiculous nature of the entire endeavor, Mark Steyn had it right on The Corner: Limbaugh will probably consider the billboards free advertising for his show. As if he needs the pub.
