The Limbaugh Rule: Vote for the Most Conservative Candidate, Period


Throughout today's show, Rush Limbaugh discussed the "Buckley Rule," the principle that conservatives should vote for the most conservative electable candidate, and suggested it should be replaced with the "Limbaugh Rule." Limbaugh described his rule this way: "In an election year when voters are fed up with liberalism and socialism, when voters are clearly frightened of where the hell the country is headed, vote for the most conservative Republican in the primary, period." Limbaugh used the term while discussing the Delaware Republican primary for Senate between Rep. Mike Castle (R-DE) and tea party-endorsed Christine O'Donnell. Limbaugh continued to refer to Castle as a "RINO" and to criticize the congressman for cooperating with Democrats. Limbaugh continued to criticize the Washington political establishment throughout the episode.

Limbaugh said that critics have never criticized O'Donnell on the basis of policy, saying that criticisms were solely on the basis of her tax trouble and a lawsuit against her former employer, a conservative non-profit organization based in Delaware.

Limbaugh speculated that the harassment inquiry into the New York Jets was prompted not by reporter Ines Sainz, but by another female reporter. Limbaugh noted that the media has yet to report how physically attractive said reporter is. Limbaugh also said that Sainz knows how to attract attention, and was using her physical attractiveness as an asset to gain access "for her job," which he pronounced "yob."

Here are some highlights from today's show:

Limbaugh hypes claim that Rep. Castle voted "to investigate George W. Bush for impeachment"

Limbaugh: "Bootylicious" NFL reporter "is making no attempt" to hide it "because she wants access for her job"

Fox Business "reporter" Byrnes: "Everyone's hoping we get a Republican sweep in November" so Obama governs from the center

Limbaugh: Bipartisanship won't "fix what's wrong," it "means compromising what we believe to go along with Democrats"

Rush rallying against liberalism: Why are we "willingly, knowingly going down the path of our own self-destruction?"

Limbaugh: "There's a soft tyranny in the country today," "the Constitution is being shredded in front of our very eyes"
