NBC's Today show is running an interview with Rush Limbaugh Monday morning, but they've released some very brief snippets Friday afternoon. In them, Limbaugh says he's not interested in being the leader of the Republican Party and confirms what everyone could already see: being targeted by Democrats--who made him the focal point of their messaging efforts for a few months earlier this year--has been good for business, boosting his popularity.
"I am not the leader of the Republican Party. Don't want to be the leader of the Republican Party...It's silly for them to keep talking about how I'm the leader of anything--it's just creating more curiosity about me," Limbaugh says. "21 years, more puopular than ever? Lord, thank you for my enemies." (video after the jump)
