Rush, Speculating on a Sinister MSM Plot


Rush Limbaugh thinks that the mainstream media is trying to build up Mike Huckabee, so that he gets the nomination, so they can later turn on him with a vengeance, giving the Democrat a massive win in the general election. The aim, he speculates, is to “destroy the Christian Right once and for all.”

“Now they’re promoting McCain,” he concluded, just before the break.

UPDATE: How do you know this presidential race is huge? Rush just said he canceled two commitments to appear at golf tournaments in the coming weeks.
