'Rush' Job? How Dems, the GOP, Limbaugh and the Media are Benefiting at Your Expense

Veteran Democratic political operative James Carville concurred, saying forthrightly, "It's great for us, great for him, great for the press.”"

Any time right wingers and lefties agree about anything–but particularly Shock Jock radio, I'm immediately suspicious. So the notion now being out out publicly that, as Politico recently opined, "Democrats realized they could roll out a new GOP bogeyman for the post-Bush era by turning to an old one in Limbaugh" seems suspect, as does El Rushbo's own remarks on the subject to the Boston Herald to the effect that "the White House is trying ‘in every way possible" to say that he’s the leader of the GOP "because they are trying to marginalize me."

What IS clear about the entire situation is that both the Democrats and Limbaugh are benefiting from the contretemps.
