Early last year, a major news publication gave Rush Limbaugh a space of 400 words to explain his hope for the Obama presidency.
He didn’t need 400 words, he said on the air–he only needed four: “I hope he fails.”
Liberals and even conservatives feigned shock for days. It was so personal people said. The hint of schadenfreude so narcissistic, so inappropriate, so appalling to say of the President of these United States.
I hope he fails.
Is it so appalling now?
