Limbaugh Caller Says Obama Reminds Daughter of Cartoon Monkey; Limbaugh Urges Votes for Hillary

This is the mindset that Hillary is apparently pandering to (http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalradar/2008/03/limbaugh-caller.html) if the information referenced in my prior post turns out to be true. It is also telling that Mr. Limbaugh is encouraging Republicans to go out and vote for Hillary in order to help the GOP cause. Here is a brief highlight from ABCNews:

ABC News' Tahman Bradley Reports: Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh issued an on-air apology to Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., today after a caller said her daughter thought the Democratic presidential frontrunner looked like the cartoon character Curious George, a monkey. Limbaugh, who laughed at the caller's comments, later apologized explaining he didn't know anything about Curious George.
Here is what Limbaugh is telling his listeners in Texas and Ohio - again, why don't Hillary's supporters get the message? (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,334669,00.html):
RUSH LIMBAUGH, RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: I don't know if the audience is mobilizing or not. I am urging people — I am using a phrase — the Republicans — our nominee is chosen. It's John McCain. Texas is open. And I want Hillary to stay in this, Laura. This is too good a soap opera. We need Barack Obama bloodied up politically, and it's obvious that the Republicans are not going to do it and don't have the stomach for it.
This is the presidency of the United States you're talking about. I want our party to win. I want the Democrats to lose. They're in the midst of tearing themselves apart right now. It is fascinating to watch, and it's all going to stop if Hillary loses. So yes, I'm asking to cross over and, if they can stomach it — I know it's a difficult thing to do to vote for a Clinton — but it will sustain this soap opera, and it's something I think we need. It would be fun, too.
