Walk, Don't Rush, to the Polls

Why, oh why, CNN, must you pay attention to that portly, nagging child tugging on your pant leg? I'm speaking, of course, of Rush Limbaugh, who decided when he got up today that his disingenuous endorsement of the likely Democratic nominee was newsworthy.

Almost everything Rush Limbaugh has ever said or done reminds me of what a six year-old might do*, only with less wit and aplomb. When he urged Republicans to cross party lines and vote for Hillary, he was clearly sooooo pleased with himself, even though he was, basically, just rallying his friends to knock over the Democrats' Lincoln logs. This Obama "endorsement" is simply a remedial** reverse psychology move, pulled off -- in classic Limbaugh style -- with all the subtlety of a wrecking ball.

So, in kind, I'd like to suggest that lightning not strike this fantastic human being, as a personal favor to me.

*apologies to six year-olds for this comparison
** no offense, remedial students
