Hewitt Award Nominee

"I think it can now be said, without equivocation — without equivocation — that this man hates this country. He is trying — Barack Obama is trying — to dismantle, brick by brick, the American dream. There’s no other way to put this. There’s no other way to explain this. He was indoctrinated as a child. His father was a communist. His mother was a leftist. He was sent to prep and Ivy League schools where his contempt for the country was reinforced. He moved to Chicago. It was the home of the radical-left movement. He hooks up to Ayers and Dohrn and Rashid Khalidi. He learns the ruthlessness of Cook County politics. This is what we have as a president: A radical ideologue, a ruthless politician who despises the country and the way it was founded and the way in which it became great. He hates it," – Rush Limbaugh, who surges into the lead. (Awards glossary here.)

You know Obama's doing OK when Limbaugh has to resort to the crudeness of this formulation. It's not that he hasn't said this before. It's that he is now at that Breitbart moment when he is merely screaming epithets at those whom he hates.
