Off. His. Game.

Rush Limbaugh is flustered, at least he was during the 15 minutes I listened today in the car. (I had to tune in of course –  Schadenfreude and all.)

The man, usually one of the finest practitioners of the English language, was reaching – both for coherence and vocabulary. He even made a few grammatical errors – rare for him, as Rush’s near pitch-perfect use of language has been his friend.  But today it deserted him.

Limbaugh is famously thin-skinned, always lashing out – with skill – to discredit or otherwise inflict maximum damage on whoever dares demean or publicly question him. Today he was flailing around, unable to settle on a target for his wrath.

He’s rattled.
