How Many Divisions?

Joseph Stalin once famously asked, "How many divisions does the Pope have?"

Quite a few, when you consider that foreign potentate's supposed moral authority.

But this isn't about dead Soviet leaders, or about the current Teutonic Termagant running the Vatican.

Michael Steele, the Chairman of the Republican National Committee, asserted his authority as "de facto" head of the Party and criticized radio talk show host, sex tourist and Oxycontin addict Rush Limbaugh for his incendiary statements.

It came as no surprise that Limbaugh went after Steele, and Steele had to back down from his earlier assertions. It must have been quite humiliating to do it, but we've seen elected representatives of the people of the United States truckling to this obese fraud over the past couple of months.

It is a truism in local politics (I can cite one case) that you don't get into a public flap with anyone who buys their ink by the barrel. I guess we can update that truism to encompass talk radio.

So ...

Michael Steele asked, "How many divisions does Rush Limbaugh have?"

And Limbaugh replied, "Enough to make you crawl to me for forgiveness."

All hail the leader of the Republican Party ... Rush Limbaugh.
