White House Today: Got My Last Liberal Merit Badge

I got to see the President speak about health care reform today, but they didn’t have anyplace for the press to sit in the East Room, WTF?  Two guys in front of me got into it over whose spot was whose.  On the way out, I talked to Jake Tapper about Rush Limbaugh’s “compliment.”

I didn’t get a question in during the briefing today, but I did comlete the last milestone in any good liberal’s career:  I was interviewed by Al Jazeera.  About Helen Thomas.  I pwn liberalism.

Democratic Party Email – Your Rush Billboard

The Democratic Party
Friend —

Submit your slogan I’m Jen O’Malley Dillon, the new

Executive Director of the

Democratic National Committee.

If you’re anything like me,

then you’ve had the urge

to talk back to a right-wing

talk radio host more than a few times.

Now you can.

Rush Limbaugh has made waves

lately about his desire to see

President Obama fail. And he’s unapologetic,

even though Americans voted in November

for the very kind of change the President is

bringing to Washington. As even Limbaugh

must know, if the President fails, America fails.

Incredibly, Republican leaders have yet to

condemn Limbaugh for his destructive comments.

In fact, Republicans like Congressman Eric Cantor,

a leader in the House, have adopted the Limbaugh

strategy, telling the Washington Post recently that

their strategy on the President’s jobs plan was

“just saying no.”

The only Republican leader to challenge Limbaugh —

the chairman of the Republican National Committee —

even called Rush to apologize just a few days later.

But we have no apologies for Rush, just a message.

We need you to come up with a slogan, in ten words

or less, that we’ll put on a billboard where he can’t

miss it — in his hometown of West Palm Beach, Florida.

Can you help us come up with a message for Rush

that we’ll place on a billboard right in his hometown?

We’ll go through all the slogans we get, and the winner

will have his or her message appear on the billboard —

and receive a free T-shirt featuring the winning slogan.

If Republican leaders aren’t willing to tell Rush,

then we will. Americans want President Obama to succeed.

Our country’s future depends on it. Rooting for the

President’s failure is rooting for our country to fail.

To get America back on a path to prosperity,

we’ll need to leave behind the failed partisan

attack politics of the past.

Americans voted for a new direction in November.

Choosing Rush Limbaugh to be the voice of their party —

as Republican leaders have done — is not the answer.

Send in your suggestion of ten words or less for a

billboard and we’ll choose the best one to put in Rush’s own “backyard”:

Jen
