RUSH: Last Friday in Charlotte, North Carolina, at a voter registration event, the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, Howard Dean spoke.
DEAN: We will never again make the mistake of not coming to the South and proudly asking for our votes as Democrats. The Democrat Party message will not be delivered anymore by Rush Limbaugh.
RUSH: Yes, it will. We are going to continue to deliver the Democrat Party message because they lie about their message. They don’t tell you the truth about what they’re going to do, what their plans are. We will tell you the truth. LA Times, Top of the Ticket blog: ‘Where Did Barack Obama’s Mojo Go?’ They’re very concerned. What’s happened to Barry’s momentum? Strategerists are puzzled. They say that people want to vote for Obama, but something’s holding ’em back, and they can’t figure out what it is. It actually says here, ‘Political strategists are puzzled. Several strategists of both parties sense that Americans want to vote for Obama, but something is holding them back. Or several somethings.’ Maybe it’s his flips, maybe it’s his arrogance, maybe they’re just suspicious of legislators. What’s Obama done for DC change since arriving? Not much. They go through four different things, and they have missed it all. Where do they get the idea people want to vote for Obama but something’s holding them back? Vote strategerists say this. Speaking of Howard Dean, ladies and gentlemen, he cannot get me off his mind. Here is a montage of Howard Dean over the years obsessed with me.

DEAN: I am tired of having Rush Limbaugh lay claim to the American flag. We aren’t under the thumb of the Rush Limbaughs. We are taking our country back piece by piece from the Rush Limbaughs. We have the power to take back the United States of America so our flag is not owned by Rush Limbaugh. You have the power to take back our country so that the flag no longer represents solely Rush Limbaugh. You have the power to take back our country. So that the flag never again is the sole property of Rush Limbaugh. The flag of the United States doesn’t belong to Rush Limbaugh. So the flag of the United States of America is no longer the sole property of Rush Limbaugh. This democracy and the flag of the United States do not belong to Rush Limbaugh. We have the power to take back our country so that the flag of the United States is no longer the sole property of Rush Limbaugh. This country does not belong to Rush Limbaugh. I want my country back, Mr. President. That flag belongs to every single American, not to Rush Limbaugh. Move over. I want my country back again, because the flag of this country does not belong to Rush Limbaugh. You have the power to take back the flag so it does no longer belong solely to Rush Limbaugh. (scream)
