Word: Rush's new bitch

Rush disses Obama. Obama disses Rush. Gingrey disses Rush. Gingrey begs Rush for forgiveness.

“I would be honored if the drive-by media headlined me all day long: 'Limbaugh: I Hope Obama Fails.' Somebody's gotta say it."

—    Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on his Jan. 16 show

"You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done."

—    Pres. Barack Obama to GOP leaders on Jan. 23

“It’s easy if you’re Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh … to stand back and throw bricks. You don’t have to try to do what’s best for your people and your party.”

—    U.S Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Marietta, as quoted in a Jan. 27 Politico.com article about criticism of Obama’s economic stimulus plan.

“I clearly ended up putting my foot in my mouth … and I just wanted to tell you, Rush, that I regret those stupid comments.”
