Rep. Phil Gingrey, Georgia Republican, is taking issue with conservative radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh’s criticism of Republican leaders in Congress, Politico is reporting.

Gingrey said it’s easy for conservative commentators to “stand back and throw bricks.”


Limbaugh responded: “Conservatives want leadership from those who claim to represent them.”

Let’s get this straight: Rush Limbaugh says he wants President Obama to fail if his policies are socialist.  Obama says Republican leaders shouldn’t listen to Limbaugh if they seek bipartisanship.  Meanwhile, Newt Gingrich says GOP senators need to push back against the Obama administration, and Limbaugh says GOP leaders are losing their backbone.  Now Gingrey says Limbaugh doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

Whew!  I’m going to need a scorecard and a bottle of No Doz!

You know, this is sounding almost kinda sorta like something resembling a debate.  Sort of.

It sounds like the Republican Party, if not the conservative movement, is in need of a leader.  Any volunteers?
