Why Did It Take This to Liberate Rush?

Rush Limbaugh has this posted at his Web site today, culled from his radio program:

“I feel liberated. I’m just going to tell you as plainly as I can why. I no longer am going to have to carry the water for people who I don’t think deserve having their water carried. Now you might say, well, why have you been doing it? Because the stakes are high. Even though the Republican Party let us down, to me they represent a far better future for my beliefs and therefore the country’s than the Democrat Party and liberalism does.”

Like almost all conservatives, I love Rush. But this comment disturbs me. Part of the problem is that for far too long, he, Sean Hannity, and many of the rest of (popular) talk radio conservatives have done too much water-carrying and not enough calling to accountability. They failed to call President Bush and his fellow Congressional “big government” aficionados on their sins, instead helping them nudge along their misguided agenda.

Meanwhile, genuine conservatives like Rep. Mike Pence and Sen. Tom Coburn have stuck their necks out in order to try and draw their colleagues back to their original principles. Perhaps if their allies in talk radio had been equally as brave the last few years, disasters like yesterday wouldn’t have had to happen.
