A 'Rush Is the Leader' TV Ad

Continuing the newfound theme of liberals proclaiming Rush Limbaugh the leader of the GOP (more on that here), activist group Americans United for Change has announced it will begin airing a TV ad dedicated, almost solely, to making that claim, calling on Republicans to reject Limbaugh's politics.

Not only is Rush the leader of the Republican Party, according to the ad, Sarah Palin, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, RNC Chairman Michael Steele, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are specifically NOT the party's leaders, at least as indicated by the raucous applause Limbaugh received at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in DC over the weekend. (Limbaugh, it should be noted, is no stranger to Americans United for Change ads--the group has used his "fail" comment since early February to blast Republicans for opposing President Obama's stimulus.) The ad will air in DC and on national cable as early as Thursday through the end of next week, the group says.
