TPM Reader PD chimes in from the Rush Wars …

You know what’s great about all this Rush nonsense? It looks like the Democrats, from Robert Gibbs to Rahm to the DCCC, are finally using some of the techniques of bitch-slap politics against the Republicans. If GOPers are put on the spot and agree with Rush, they’re taking an unpopular position about the direction of the country. If they disagree, they’re immediately forced to grovel and look weak doing it. Only in this case it’s sort of like the bitch-slap theory combined with jujitsu, because the Dems are actually getting Rush to administer the slaps. I’m about your age, and I’m not sure I’ve ever seen the Dems have the confidence to make Republicans look weak like this.
