Well, if I had to choose in terms of being a Republican, I’d go with Rush Limbaugh, I think. I think my take on it was Colin had already left the party. I didn’t know he was still a Republican.
– Dick Cheney, on whether Colin Powell or Rush Limbaugh is a better spokesperson for the Republican Party. Cheney claimed that Powell wasn’t a Republican because he had endorsed Obama, ignoring the fact that a significant number of Republicans did the same thing.
But what makes this ironic is that tonight, the Democratic National Committee pointed out that Powell’s approval rating, at 80%, is almost twice than that of Cheney (18%) and Limbaugh (26%) combined.
