President Limbaugh

But enough of reality, let's spend some quality time in Republican Fantasyland, where Barack Obama has a 4 percent approval rating and Rush Limbaugh is making his State of the Union speech.

In a self-proclaimed "first address ever to the nation" (on Fox and C-Span) President Rushbo spent an hour and a half at the Conservative Political Action Conference, railing against "rampant government growth" and "indebtedness that has wealth that has not even been created yet being spent."

He told the faithful: "Ronald Reagan used to speak of a shining city on a hill. Barack Obama portrays America as a soup kitchen in some dark night in a corner of America that's very obscure."

In concluding, President Limbaugh urged his followers: "Don't treat people as children. Respect their intelligence. Realize that there's a way to persuade people. Sometimes the worst way is to get in their face and point a finger. Set up a set of circumstances where the conclusion is obvious. Let them think they came up with the idea themselves."

Looking forward, his aroused constituents voted their choice for President Limbaugh's successor--Mitt Romney by 30 percent, with Bobby Jindal at 14, and Sarah Palin tied with Ron Paul at 13.

Forty-four percent wished they had better choices but in their world there are no term limits. Why not Rush Limbaugh as President-for-Life?

Personally, I tend to believe that the GOP would love "King Limbaugh" to reign supreme. Great post!
