Audio: Lefty ad uses Rush comment to target GOP on stimulus

All part of the coordinated attempt I mentioned yesterday to crown Limbaugh leader of the party so they can hang his “I hope he fails” comment around the neck of the entire GOP. The idea, of course, is to reframe Republican opposition to The One’s agenda as a product of mindless obstructionist partisanship rather than a principled objection to a piece-of-shinola bill. Listen for yourself here. I’m underwhelmed.
This is the same group, by the way, that’s targeting moderate Republican senators with a TV ad urging them to embrace the Hopenchange. I’m underwhelmed by that clip too, but unlike this one, it might actually work.
