On the same night he was offering the keynote address to the Conservative Political Action Conference, Rush Limbaugh drew criticism from an unlikely source: Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele.
In a little-noticed interview Saturday night, Steele dismissed Limbaugh as an “entertainer” whose show is “incendiary” and “ugly.”
Steele’s criticism makes him the highest-ranking Republican to pick a fight with the popular and polarizing conservative talk show host.
But the new RNC chairman’s extraordinary comments won’t sit well with the millions of conservative listeners Limbaugh draws each week, and Steele aides scrambled to limit the damage Monday morning by trying to change the subject.

It must be really frustrating for liberals to keep trying to pound a square nail into a round hole. Don't you all realize that not every conservative is the same? Just like all liberals aren't the same. Rush is entitled to his opinion just as all other US citizens. Many people think for themselves and don't need anyone (politician, radio host, celebrity) to tell them how to think.
