Rush responds to Huck peace offering
Rush Limbaugh responding to Mike Huckabee's peace offering said today that he doesn't need to talk with the former Arkansas governor.
"I saw his comments and accept them as honest, sincere and genuine," Limbaugh wrote in an e-mail.
Still, the conservative talk show host indicated his continued displeasure at the anonymous remarks Thursday from a Huckabee backer suggesting he takes his cues from the "D.C./Manhattan chattering class" that sparked this conflagration.
"What was somewhat stunning about all this is that NO ONE in the GOP field, including advisers and staff, could possibly misread my 19-plus-year career the way Gov. Huckabee's D.C. supporter did," Limbaugh said. "Whoever said those things was essentially repeating the Democrat mantra of all these years: that I am just an entertainer, not an independent thinker, part of the Wall Street/D.C. axis. If it was someone on Gov. Huckabee's staff or support team, it was just silly, uninformed and thus curious."
Limbaugh, the most listened-to talk show host in America and an influential voice in the conservative constellation, devoted part of his show Friday to defending himself against the charges.
"I'm part of the Cape Girardeau-Middle America axis," Limbaugh said on the program, alluding to his Missouri hometown.
He also struck back, calling the attacks "Clintonian" and accused Huckabee's campaign of "trying to dumb down conservatism in order to get it to conform with his record."
In his e-mail, Limbaugh kept it up.
"Gov. Huckabee's campaign is engaged in identity politics at this moment, so I understand his adviser's/supporter's intent to put the focus on me rather than the substance of my commentary," he tweaked.

It’s not nice to piss off Rush.
Still think that someone that posts here did the Rush attack. One of our very own open border loons.
Just as some of the posters have pointed out. If Hucklebee wants to get in contact with Rush, there is nothing stopping him or his lame assed staff.

If the Huckabites think that Rush can’t knock their lights out they had better think again.
...the huckster is going to run out of money soon
Huckabee is uniting the party . . . against himself.
Better put some ice on that!
I love anonymous sources. Gee, maybe a Romney or McCain... Nah, politics is pure as the driven snow. Shame on Rush for giving that kind of credibility to an anonymous source. If Rush doesn't like Huckabee he should just come out and say it, not use such a flimsy allegation to attack him.
If the truth sticks, wear it.
Limbaugh did, though, offer a timely coda: "I wish Gov. Huckabee a Merry Christmas."
Huck couldn't shine Rush's shoes.
No kidding. :) I was driving with my fiancée to Michigan and was listening to Rush’s show on Friday. I think Huckabee’s people didn’t realize they were “throwing down the gauntlet”. Presumably, they were quite surprised when Rush took on their challenge.
I’m settling into the recliner, I have the popcorn and drink. I think it will be very interesting over the next several days.
It’s not only “not nice” it’s just plain STUPID.
Who is Rush supporting?
A pro-life socialist vs. a pro-abortion socialist.
As sad as it is, I will not walk the half block to my polling place to vote.
No one in the primaries........
