Providing a golden opportunity for conservative and libertarian third party and independent advocates, Rush Limbaugh has challenged his listeners to identify third party candidates for office and asked them to “call me and tell me and we’ll discuss it.” From his radio show yesterday:
Now, if you happen to think a third party is the best way to go, then go out there and form it. You think a third party is needed? You go form it. You people who think everybody sucks, go show us how not to suck! You form a third party! Find your candidate, name your party. Go out there and name your congressional candidates and your Senate candidates. Show me how you’re going to put together a third party governing force. Show me. You sit out there and saying everybody else sucks, then you say that I suck because I don’t realize everybody else sucks.
Okay. So if you’re the only ones that don’t suck then you go show us who do suck how not to. Do it! You got all the answers. You’re making all the success. You’re in such a powerful mode here. I guess you can all call me and write me and tell me what you’ve done to bring about this massive success in this past year. Yeah, I want to me hear about it. I want to hear about it. I want to hear who your third-party leaders are. Who are you going to run for president in the third party? Who is it? Tell me who it is! “Well, I can’t come up with one buh, buh, buh, buh (mumbling).” Well, then why are you so insistent the Republicans name one today? If you can’t come up with somebody in a third party, if you’ve got somebody out there, call and tell me, and we’ll discuss it. Ideas, my friends, and not personalities are what matter.
