Poll: The GOP is Lost in the Wilderness

Thursday, June 11, 2009


Republicans, out of power, energy, ideas and divided over how to get it back, are finding even the most basic questions hard to answer.

Take this one. Who speaks for the GOP?

According to the latest USA TODAY/Gallup Poll:

A 52% majority couldn’t come up with a name when asked to specify “the main person” who speaks for Republicans today.

But, here’s the fun part.

13% named the 400lbs. pedophile and junkie, Rush Limbaugh as the person who speaks for the GOP.

Limbaugh was followed by former vice president Dick Cheney, Sen. John McCain and former House speaker Newt Gingrich, respectively. Former president George W. Bush ranked fifth.

    The Republican party doesn’t really exist today.

    They stand for nothing except “No.” You can’t expect to raise money and win elections like this. You also can’t expect to be relevant with the Rush bloviator as your leader.

    I am fighting the urge to slam a baseball bat over that spinning Rush head.

    He just brings out the worst in me.

    I thought Sarah Palin was the great hope for the GOP going into 2012? Looks like they’re to have to nominate Rush Limbaugh to run for president.

    The problem for the GOP is, what the American people say they care about: healthcare, ending the Iraq war, and fixing the economy, the Republicans look for ways to oppose these issues.

    As long as the GOP functions as a Congressional lobbyist group for America’s competing special interest groups, they will be a party marginalized by the voters.

    I’m delighted to see them anoint the gasbag Limbaugh as the spokesperson for them. He’s almost as unpopular as Cheney. Maybe it’s time for a genuine third party to emerge?

    Holy cats, they’re complete losers!

    I saw Limbaugh on TV recently.

    He’s just huge! Really pig fat now and his eyes are tiny little slits in this gigantic face. I thought doing dope made you thin?

    I suppose Limbaugh’s on the Elvis diet. Mayo-laced, banana and marshmallow sandwiches. So gross.

    Prime candidate for a heart attack?
    I can only hope…

    I remember 14 years ago when he attacked Clinton’s daughter Chelsea when she was still wearing braces, and was saying how ugly she was. I’ve despised him ever since then. It showed me his true character. How the tides have turned.

    GOP= Gawdawful Old Politicians

    If he decided to run, his 2-State ass would qualify him to run for BOTH spots on the Rushpublican ticket.
