Rush: 'We're trying to avoid a fifty state landslide!'

Poor Rush. He hates John McCain with a passion. He's so exasperated by the old guard Republicans circling the wagons around the Arizona senator that he's practically dribbling spittle. He heard these comments from former Republican Secretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger (who served under Presidents Nixon, Reagan and Bush Sr.) dismissing Limbaugh (via The BradBlog):

I don't know who elected Rush Limbaugh or Hannity as the heads of this conservative movement,” Eagleburger says at the beginning of a clip from MSNBC last night that was aired on today's radio show. “They throw that word around as if it was theirs and theirs alone.”

I thought I was a conservative, but that doesn't mean that I have to buy off on everything these poobahs thinks is what's necessary to be a conservative,” continued the former Sec. of State, before defending what he sees as McCain's conservative national security credentials.

 Rush erupted:

“We're trying to win. We're trying to avoid a fifty state landslide, Dr. Eagleburger!,” Limbaugh hollered in reply. “We're trying to win!,” he said again.

…”We've always wanted to win!,” Limbaugh continued in his defense before releasing a huge sigh of exasperation. And then…”We don't have a death wish!”

 Brad has the audio.
