Conservative giant flays Republican Party
If you think conservative juggernaut Rush Limbaugh is a champion for the Republican Party, think again.
The nation’s top-rated radio host just launched a blistering attack on the GOP establishment, calling it “corrupt” and “reprehensible” for aligning with Democrats to defeat a tea-party Republican in a Senate primary runoff.
On Tuesday night, six-term Sen. Thad Cochran held off state Sen. Chris McDaniel by a narrow margin of 50.8 percent of the votes to 49.2 percent.
On Limbaugh’s Wednesday program, the host flayed the Republican Party’s tactics, holding up a flyer featuring photos of both candidates he said was indicative of the GOP’s efforts.
