One of Limbaugh's regular guest hosts, Mark Davis, started off today by offering his somewhat tepid, right-wing commentary about Republican leadership and possible presidential contenders for 2012, throwing around well-worn names such as Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich, while also criticizing Gingrich for suggesting that tea party groups and local NAACP organizations open a dialogue. In the midst of this segment which also named less well-known Republican Congressmen, Davis suggested that the Obama administration is disappointed by the halt of the disastrous Gulf oil leak. He later rambled about the possibility of Hillary Clinton challenging President Obama in 2012.
Davis also had on Quin Hillyer, senior editorial writer for The Washington Times, who proceeded to repeat nearly every dubious and phony claim that Republican activist J. Christian Adams has thrown at the Department of Justice. Hillyer cited McCain supporter and current Draft Rudy Giuliani for Governor chair Bartle Bull's defense of Adams, as well as the support from equally discredited Bush era DOJ officials.
