RUSH: I’ve gotta share with you one of the funniest things I have ever read. It is by the blogger Iowahawk. It is one of the sharpest, most cutting, brilliant satires on these pseudo-intellectual conservatives who have gone over to Obama. Let me just read the opening, and you’ll understand where it goes. It’s by T. Coddington Van Voorhees VII, Columnist, The National Topsider, Membership Chairman, The Newport Club.
‘When my late father T. Coddington Van Voorhees VI founded the iconoclastic conservative journal National Topsider in 1948, he famously declared that ‘Now is the time for all good conservative helmsmen to hoist the mizzen, pour the cocktails, and steer this damned schooner hard starboard.’ In the 60 years since he first uttered it after one-too-many Cosmopolitans at one of Pamela Harriman’s notorious foreign policy black tie balls, father’s pithy bon mot has served as a rallying cry for conservatives from Greenwich to Chevy Chase. Today, I say it’s time for we conservatives to once again grab the rigging and set sail with the flotilla of the true conservative in this race: Barack Obama. Trust me, I haven’t taken this tack lightly. No Van Voorhees has supported an avowed socialist since great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandpapa Cragmont Van Voorhees lent Peter Minuet $24 and a sack of wampum to swing a subprime mortgage on Manhattan Island.’
Folks, it’s the greatest send-up, and we’re going to link to it at RushLimbaugh.com. I’ve heard of Iowahawk. I don’t know what his leanings are, probably lib, I don’t know, doesn’t matter. This whole thing is just wonderful, it is just hilarious. It sends up all these people on our side, these conservative intellectualoids who have decided to join the Obama campaign.
