(CNN) - Conservative host Rush Limbaugh said Tuesday he isn't sorry to see Arlen Specter leave the GOP - and that many Republicans wish the Pennsylvania senator would take a few others with him when he goes.
"A lot of people say, 'Well, Specter, take [Sen. John] McCain with you. And his daughter [Meghan]. Take McCain and his daughter with you if you're gonna..." he told listeners, dissolving in laughter.
".....It's ultimately good. You're weeding out people who aren't really Republicans," he said.
Limbaugh did concede the downside of Specter's defection. "It makes the Senate essentially as big a slam dunk for Obama and the Democrats as the House of Representatives already is," he said.
Earlier this month, Specter said Limbaugh did have a tendency to make "provocative" statements, but told radio host Howard Stern he didn't have a problem with the conservative talker. "Do I like Limbaugh?... yeah, I like him," he said then.
UPDATE: Late Tuesday afternoon, Meghan McCain fired back on Twitter. "RED TIL I'M DEAD BABY!!! I love the republican party enough to give it constructive criticism, I love my party and sure as hell not leavin!"
This just gets better all the time. Perhaps if they keep attacking each other, they will leave the Dems alone to do what they want to do.
Well, maybe when we send the Gitmo detainees to other countries, Limbaugh can go with them. He would not be missed. What a big blowhard this man is. His ego is enormous.
could that fat cow sound any more like a segregationist?
Republicans, here is the reason why u r starting to shrink while the democrats are expanding.
Chubby is always bragging about having twenty million regular listeners and paints himself as the quasi head of "his Republican" party. The party of hate, fear and division. Those folks may find that when the next national election comes around that may be all the votes they get. Twenty million will not be enough to unseat President Obama or any other Democratic leader. Thank you very much Mr. Lamebrain for that contribution! Nice to see that you have also let Mr. Steele weigh in on this in his own inept way.
what a fail-bot ! ! ! ! !
