Eric Boehlert at Media Matters makes a great point after Michael Medved's WSJ op-ed last week: the right's far-fetched, conspiritorial lies about Obama are not only dangerous for Republicans, they haven't worked!
Just look at Obama's job approval rating. It has remained essentially unchanged for the last 18 months. Think about that. Palin and Limbaugh and Glenn Beck have thrown the kitchen sink, the bathroom sink and the basement sink at Obama with their he's-trying-to-destroy-America shtick for going on two years now. And the collective public response? A shrug of the shoulders.
Bet Rush's new obsession: that Michelle Obama is fat and eats junk food despite her campaign against obesity won't be doing Republicans any good with independent voters, either.
If they didn't tune out Rush Limbaugh years ago.
