Excerpt from The Resurgent
By Erick Erickson
I have been and remain a die hard fan of Rush Limbaugh. The only career goal I ever set in life was when I was seventeen years old. I wanted to fill in for Rush Limbaugh. Mission accomplished. Doing that was the coolest thing ever.
That’s why it has been so miserable these past few months watching good friends of mine tell me they no longer listen, they wish he’d retire, etc. They are mad at Rush for not rejecting the Republican nominee. The truth of the matter, however, is this — had Republicans spent time listening to Rush Limbaugh instead of trying unsuccessfully to use him for their own ends, we would not be in this place.
