What’s the Story with Rush?

It’s Friday, January 30, 2008, and a very busy day. Here’s what we’re looking at:

Rush Limbaugh somehow convinced every House Republican to vote against Obama’s stimulus bill. One blogger writes “Is Rush Limbaugh the de facto leader of the GOP?” With the bill facing the Senate now, Americans United for Change are asking constituents of Republican Senators “Is (senator) with Obama or Rush?”

With a Special Election coming up fast, one candidate to replace Rahm gets a little...can we say fishy?

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell lays down some ideas for a reemergence of the GOP. He is particularly concerned with the Republicans becoming a regional party based solely in the South.

Governor Rod Blagojevich has been removed from office with a unanimous vote by the Illinois State Senate. Lt. Gov. Patrick Quinn has already signed the oath of office.

SCHIP expansion has passed in the Senate. It wasn’t the first bill Obama signed but it could be in the first five.

Finally, President Obama tells reporters who he will be supporting in the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Need something to do this weekend before the Super Bowl? Why not play in the “Can You Find Your Congressperson?” Contest!
