Appearing on DL Hughley's CNN show over the weekend, Michael Steele says that that Rush Limbaugh's "whole thing" is "incendiary" and "ugly."  (HT: Commenter Frank on my post below).

Fair enough for the RNC Chairman to clarify that Rush isn't the head of the GOP, as he also did.  But characterizing Rush's show (presumably that's what he was referring to) as "ugly"?

Has Steele ever listened to Rush's show?  How about trying to encourage Hughley's viewers to tune in and hear for themselves, rather than simply turning over and agreeing with unfair criticism of Rush?

Whatever the way out of the wilderness is for Republicans, it doesn't come from bashing Rush Limbaugh.  Let's hope the newly-elected chairman figures that out, and fast.
