FINALLY, some repug bigwig recognizes Limbaugh's demagoguery isnt doing them any favors. But of course it would take a retiring senator who isnt up for reelection. What courage! What backbone! When will some of these other repug weasels chime in to denounce the fascist tendencies of their bankrupt know-nothing anti-intellectual anti-American party? I will not hold my breath waiting for another of these jellyfish to echo Hagel's sentiment. See you in the trash heap of history, suckers!
"(CNN) — As his Senate career nears its end, Republican Chuck Hagel isn't holding back when it comes to criticizing members of his own party — including conservative talk radio hosts.
"We are educated by the great entertainers like Rush Limbaugh," Hagel said Tuesday during a speech in Washington, according to the Huffington Post.
"You know, I wish Rush Limbaugh and others like that would run for office," a sarcastic Hagel continued. "They have so much to contribute and so much leadership and they have an answer for everything. And they would be elected overwhelmingly. [The truth is] they try to rip everyone down and make fools of everybody but they don't have any answers."
Hagel has increasingly become critical of his party in the aftermath of the Iraq War and notably held back endorsing his longtime friend John McCain during the presidential campaign. He's reportedly under consideration for a cabinet post in the Obama administration.
Speaking at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, Hagel also faulted Washington lawmakers for "raw, partisan, political paralysis."
