<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> WASHINGTON Two days after calling conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh <span style='font-size: 14pt'>a mere "entertainer"</span> with an "incendiary" talk show, Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele apologized and <span style='font-size: 26pt'>acknowledged him as a "national conservative leader."</span>

"To the extent that my remarks helped the Democrats in Washington to take the focus, even for one minute, off of their irresponsible expansion of government, <span style='font-size: 14pt'>I truly apologize," </span>Steele said late Monday.

Steele's statement capped a remarkable weekend of awkward sparring between Republican officials and Limbaugh,<u> who has repeatedly voiced his desire that President Barack Obama's economic policies fail.</u>

The back and forth reached a fever pitch Monday afternoon when Limbaugh roared back in response to a Steele interview with CNN's D.L. Hughley Saturday night. In that interview, <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Steele rejected assertions that Limbaugh was the "de facto" leader of the Republican Party. "Rush Limbaugh, his whole thing is entertainment," Steele said then. "Yes, it's incendiary. Yes, it's ugly."

<span style="color: #990000">Limbaugh used his Monday talk show to unleash on Steele.</span></span>

"Why are you running the Republican Party?" Limbaugh asked on his radio show. "Why do you claim you lead the Republican Party when you seem obsessed with seeing to it that President Obama succeeds? ... I would be embarrassed to say that I'm in charge of the Republican Party in the sad-sack state that it's in. If I were chairman of the Republican Party, given the state that it's in, I would quit."

Distracting episode for GOP
The infighting between a top party official and a conservative opinion leader who claims to have an audience of 20 million developed into a distracting episode for a party struggling to compete with a popular president and find its voice as the opposition party.

<span style='font-size: 23pt'>"I respect Rush Limbaugh, <span style='font-size: 26pt'><u>he is a national conservative leader,</u></span> and in no way do I want to diminish his voice," Steele said in a statement late Monday.</span> "I'm sure that he and I will agree most of the time, but will probably disagree some as well, which is fine.</div></div>

So there you have it. The GOP have to pass anything they want to do through a limpdick pill popping radio nutjob for approval and their entire economic policy is based on something Grover Norquist made up when he was 12!!!!!!
