Updated: Limbaugh Calls Deeds 'Mealy-Mouthed Idiot'

Anita Kumar

Here's a friend Republican Bob McDonnell probably wasn't looking for.

Conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh decided to put on his well-worn pundit's hat and weigh in on the race for Virginia governor.

Wouldn't you know, he thinks Democrat Creigh Deeds has been too negative? He gleefully told listeners that McDonnell remains ahead despite Deeds's attempt to paint McDonnell as "an anti-female caveman."

Why? Because Americans have sourced on the "radical" Democratic agenda.

But here's the part that might be just what Deeds needs to get pumped for tonight's televised debate.

"I'll tell you what I think's going on out there. I think the New York Times must not see the ads in Virginia, the Democrat, the mealy-mouthed idiot named Creigh Deeds."

Mealy-mouthed idiot? Ouch!

Read his full comments here.

Updated: Deeds responded to Limbaugh's comments after the debate tonight. "I feel I've hit the big time!'' he said with laugh. "They've called out the heavyweights on me."

Finally we hear from the head of the National Republican Party.

Their "thought leaders" have such impressing displays of intellect that I am humbled by the lucidity displayed by their "kingmakers".

Or more accurately, if other people spoke like Rush does, in the way he did, they'd be concerned for the man. There might also be some question about paying too much attention to a man who's probably making hats out of his tinfoil sandwich wrappers at lunchtime.

Rush Limbaugh, please keep your drug-addicted thoughts out of Virginia politics. Thanks.
