Bad Move: Kansas Conservative Slams Rush

Rush Limbaugh is a Big Deal on the Republican Right. For conservatives who get on the wrong side of Rush, there's hell to pay.

Kansas Rep. Todd Tiahrt, a Republican, may soon find out about The Wrath of Rush and his Ditto Heads.

Tiahrt spoke this week with the Kansas City Star:

U.S. Rep. Todd Tiahrt of Kansas is a feisty and ardent conservative. But he said something Tuesday that might irritate Rush Limbaugh’s ditto-head followers.

Tiahrt was asked by a Kansas City Star Editorial Board member whether Limbaugh was now the de facto leader of the GOP.

“No, no, he’s just an entertainer,” Tiahrt said.

If this news is just going national on Friday, then he's got until Monday. Tick, tick, tick...

If I were a GOP strategist, I would want to stage an event to try to demonstrate that Rush is not the boss of everyone in the GOP.

But I guess if Rush didn't want to play along, it wouldn't happen, since he apparently IS the boss of everyone in the GOP.

Right on schedule:

http://thinkprogress.org/2009/04/20/tiahrt-limbaugh-apologyRep. Tiahrt's people said yesterday:

"The congressman believes Rush is a great leader of the conservative movement in America -- not a party leader responsible for election losses," Sackett told The Eagle editorial board. "Nothing the congressman said diminished the role Rush has played and continues to play in the conservative movement."

Don't talk back to the Boss Man. I could have told him that.

Do we have another hapless batter up at the Rush plate today?

Apology worthy?
