Rush Limbaugh: Stop Bashing Trump or Hillary Will Win

Limbaugh says that the attacks on Trump are so bad that they simply cannot be walked back, should he win.

He notes the difference between attacks made against allies and attacks made against enemies. He's kind of saying what I said last week, at least about the part where you can't attack your allies with the red-in-tooth-and-claw fury you attack your enemies.

We've forgotten that. It seems like we never knew it.

Establishment Republicans are using Trump, as usual, as a proxy for their favorite past-time, which is calling their fellow Republicans crude, simplistic, dumb, and uneducated.

On the other hand, Trump supporters continue to blow off facts, like the fact that Trump is, by personal description, not just pro-choice but very pro-choice, so much in fact he's proudly against banning even partial birth abortion, and has long been pro-total-amnesty for 30 million illegals, and in fact continues to hold that position (he'll build a wall like you wouldn't believe, and also amnesty those already here like you wouldn't believe), and also said that Obama's bailouts saved us from a depression in 2010, and that he would "hire" Obama.

A major compliment from the guy who "hires" a bright apprentice every few years.

And on the other side all I hear is: "But he's angry. He's angry."

Well: So f***ing what?

Is the only thing that matters Emotional Mirroring -- a candidate pretending to feel the same things we do?

We seem to have a major cleavage here between those looking for emotional validation and those who at least to pretend that they're looking for substantive commitments.

Now, to be honest, I think the people looking for substance are also emotional -- everything in life is emotion; even mathematicians speak of the beauty of a proof -- but they're at least trying to give a factual sheen to their position.

And this gets to be a very heated thing, because the emotion-release people hate being told that's what they are (and the Establishment loves, loves saying that, as they pretend to be only interested in positions and facts).

But look, at some point, you have a guy who is a textbook hard-left liberal claiming he's "angry" about shit and suddenly he's the Great Conservative Hope, and how can this be credited as anything except an expression of pure emotionalism?

To be honest, I would vote for Trump. Like myself, he's pro-choice. And I would vote for almost anyone over Hillary Clinton or the admittedly-socialist Bernie Sanders.

But the people who are up in arms in Trump devotion -- why is it wrong, suddenly, to oppose a pro-partial-birth-abortion, pro-total-amnesty, Hillary-donating, crony-capitalist buffoon?

Please stop telling me "he's angry."

Who the f*** is not angry?
