A Matter Of Opinion

Who is the GOP leader?

Interesting dust-up over Rush Limbaugh's CPAC speech. In the past when I've mentioned some misdeed or mistake Limbaugh has made, the response has been, "He's just an entertainer. No need to take him so seriously."

Here is RNC Chairman Michael Steele's first take: "Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer. Yes, it's incendiary, yes, it's ugly."

After Limbaugh fought back, Steele said: "I think Rush is a great leader for conservatives."

So who do you regard as the leader of the Republican Party these days?
