"Now, the drive-bys, when it comes to (Sen. John) McCain, are all excited that he might choose a pro-choice and/or liberal pro-choice running mate," conservative talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh said today.
"This is crap," he continued. "What is this about picking a liberal Democrat or a liberal Republican? McCain has already seen to it that he can walk across the aisle that he's the top of the ticket. If anybody is going to attract moderates it's going to be the top of the ticket guy. He's not going to help himself any additional way, he's going to hurt himself by putting a liberal or a liberal Republican on this ticket, particularly pro-choice. If they do that, if the McCain camp does that, they will have effectively destroyed the Republican party and pushed the conservative movement into the bleachers."
