Obama Advertising On Rush Limbaugh

In Texas, at least. And why not? Limbuagh and his ilk have done little but to bad-mouth McCain since he took ascendancy, and there are no viable Republican alterantives to him. And Limbaugh listeners will never be convinced to vote for Hillary Clinton, who they’ve heard demonized on that show for the past sixteen years.

So that leaves them nowhere else to go but to Obama (or to stay home). And despite being unabashedly liberal, Obama’s charisma seems to transcend even ideology; even conservatives look at the the guy and think, “Yeah, I kind of like him.” So there may be some votes to be got for Obama even amongst the family of Limbaugh listeners, given the bizarre new world emerging from this election.
