Dick Morris is wrong about everything. This time is no different. He predicted a ‘Bachmann comeback’! She came in sixth and has since dropped out of the race.

Herman Cain, for the first time, named his economic-adviser who helped him create the 999 plan yesterday. The former Godfather’s Pizza CEO was pressed for his circle of economic advisers at Tuesday’s debate in response to a question from moderator Karen Tumulty of the Washington Post.
“A very wise TV executive once told me that the key to TV is projecting through the screen. It’s one of the keys to the success of, say, a Bill O’Reilly, who comes through the screen and grabs you by the throat. Palin too projects through the screen like crazy. I’m sure I’m not the only male in America who, when Palin dropped her first wink, sat up a little straighter on the couch and said, “Hey, I think she just winked at me.” And her smile. By the end, when she clearly knew she was doing well, it was so sparkling it was almost mesmerizing. It sent little starbursts through the screen and ricocheting around the living rooms of America. This is a quality that can’t be learned; it’s either something you have or you don’t, and man, she’s got it.
Why do the Conservatives/Republicans/Tea Baggers listen to Rush Limbaugh? He is a drug-addict, his abuse of drugs was so severe at one time that he permanently lost his hearing. He now has a cochlear implant.
Rush was once detained for more than three hours at the Palm Beach Airport after officials found a bottle of Viagra in his possession with someone else’s name on it. He was going on vacation with a bottle of Viagra. He is a serial philanderer, has married and divorced multiple times.
He is not very well educated (never could finish college, barely managed to clear High School). According to his mother, “he flunked everything”. He is a draft-dodging chicken-hawk. He is also quite obese.
The gullible morons who listen to his rants proudly call themselves “ditto-heads”. Why is this man a conservative hero? Is it his racist rants that appeal to the Conservatives/Republicans/Tea Baggers?
