Voting for the most conservative candidate gains popular acceptance in bid to halt the Left.

No, you won’t find the MSNBC’s of the world or their broadcast comrades at the three networks or the New York Times or Washington Post citing the Limbaugh Rule. What you will see instead is something much, much more telling — the epitome of the old Winston Churchill wisdom that “the venom of a man’s enemies is a measure of his own strength.”
What, pray tell, was the entire point of the Sandra Fluke episode?
That’s right — as we reported here in detail, it was about shutting Rush up.
Removing him from the air once and for all. It was a full-fledged, pre-meditated political attack that had literally been sitting on the liberal shelf for years.
Why? Because the message of the Limbaugh Rule — while never officially framed as such until September 14, 2010 — has in fact been gaining traction over the years.
Perhaps the most sensitive nerve in all this was hit by Rush in his famous pre-Obama inaugural remark that if the new president was going to do what Rush believed he was going to try and do — then Rush hoped Obama would fail.
The hard fact now — which infuriates the Left — is that in fact Obama did not fail. He passed his stimulus, he passed Obamacare, he got his Dodd-Frank regulation bill and more. All added to the bottomless swamp of agencies and programs that have been growing like topsy since 1933 and are increasingly strangling the American economy when not poking a nose and a tentacle into your personal business.
What are we really seeing here in 2012? What are we seeing — really seeing — in all these Obama campaign attacks against a Romney dog, his wife, his wife’s horses, Bain Capital and all the rest? In a word: Desperation.
Newton’s Third Law of Motion states that “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
In American political life in 2012 , Newton’s Third Law has been replaced by the Limbaugh Rule:
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.
And they’re not going to stop at primaries, either. There will be two candidates on the presidential ballot in November. Barack Obama and someone more conservative.
But for all those thousands of election rules in fifty states, there will be one rule governing this election. One rule — and one rule only.
The rule that is changing America in 2012.
The Limbaugh Rule.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
