Are they insane? These people are like Saul Alinsky on steroids. They’ve picked the target, and “are freezing it, personalizing it, and polarizing it.
What they’re doing here would be funny if so many people weren’t so clueless about their motives.
Here’s the DNC email solicitation via Michelle Malkin, in part:
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.
Limbaugh’s big sin of course, is his “I hope Obama fails” statement. Big whoop. I said the same thing the day after the election. Anybody with a brain hopes Obama will fail in his war against prosperity. His policies are a disaster for the US economy, and that is becoming clearer by the day. Moderate chumps who voted for him are jumping ship faster than you can say, “tax hike!”, and some are forcefully speaking out. Even “Tingles” himself is now questioning the Messiah.
So what do they do? Divert attention from what’s becoming increasingly obvious, that’s what: Shame shame shame on the big meanie who says bad things about our first black President!!!!11!
It’s just crazy enough to work.
Meanwhile, the media yawns as an Obama bankrupts the country.

Here’s RNC Chairman Michael Steele on Sean Hannity’s show calling out the Dems for their stupid tricks.
There may be hope for the man, yet.
And House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) had an article on the Democrat distractions, Thursday in The Washington Post:
In the first two months of 2009, the Democratic Congress and the White House have spent more money than the combined cost of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and the response to Hurricane Katrina. After they doled out taxpayer dollars at such a blistering pace, the instinct of many inside the Beltway is to do what’s most convenient: desperately try to change the subject by creating straw men — called “the party of no” — to rally against.
And in a carefully calculated campaign, operatives and allies of the Obama administration are seeking to divert attention toward radio host Rush Limbaugh, and away from a debate about our alternative solutions on the economy and the irresponsible spending binge they are presiding over. This diversionary tactic will not create a single job or help a single family struggling in today’s economic crisis. And that is where our focus should be.
