The Dems have done it, I’m sure, and the Republicans, too, from time to time. But publicly encouraging Republicans to vote for Hilarity in the Dem primaries in Texas and Ohio, to keep her and Barry in a nomination battle–like big-mouth Rush Limbaugh is doing–is really foolish. Not to mention unethical. No wonder his influence is said to be declining.
UPDATE: National Review Online, at least, says it seems to have been a significant factor in Barry’s 48 percent to 51 percent loss of the popular vote in Texas. But nobody in Barry’s camp is yet blaming Limbaugh. Some evidence, anyhow, of Limbaugh’s mini-vast right wing conspiracy.
