Robert Lipscomb

Last Friday, I accidentally tuned my radio to Rush Limbaugh. It has been a few years since I last made that mistake.

For five or ten minutes, I i listened to him reaming (and I mean REAMING) Romney. In Rush's world, there are "consevatives" and "establishment Republicans". His words were more vicious than anything I have heard him hurl at Democrats or liberals. I was amazed - and I thought I had lost the capacity to be amazed by Limbaugh.

I recall something Granny Clampet said in a "Beverly Hillbillies" episode. She descrobed the Civil War as "the war between the Americans and the Yankees."

While I think Rush's influence, even withing the GOP party, is overstated, the civil war within that paty might now be between "the Americans and the Republicans."

Finally, I comprehend the cognitive dissonance that allows a Southerner to brandish the Stars and Bars and still yammer about being the only real American patriot.
