Tedious: Dems Running Against Rush Limbaugh in NY Special Election

You have to figure they're holding off on their secret weapon--the coveted Meghan McCain endorsement--if this utterly predictable strategy doesn't work. I guess they figure there are still a couple of idiots out there who still don't realize this quote is taken entirely out of context. Even lamer, they're not even using the proper quote, which was "Okay, I'll send you a response, but I don't need 400 words, I need four: I hope he fails." .
Democrats are seeking to use conservative talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh to rally their base in advance of next week's special election in New York's 20th district.

A new direct mail piece from businessman Scott Murphy's campaign features an angry shot of Limbaugh over the words "I hope Obama fails." At the bottom of the piece in parentheses is written "Somebody wants you to stay home on March 31st...."

On the back of the mailer, an Obama drawing is featured with text superimposed over it that accuses "Rush Limbaugh and his lackeys in Washington" of trying to "be a roadblock to the change America desperately needs."

Democrats have been using Limbaugh's comments -- made at his keynote address at the Conservative Political Action Conference last month -- to raise money almost since the moment they were made but using Limbaugh as a turnout tool is a new wrinkle in this strategy.
A new wrinkle?
