`Rush Limbaugh is meaningless to me,'' Tedisco told the editorial board of The Daily Star on Thursday. ``The only constituency I'm worried about are the residents of the 20th Congressional District.''Rush Should be meaningless to the person that represents the 20th District in Congress. What does Rush know about problems in the 20th District? But no one....no one, at least no Republican can get away with dissing El Rushbo.
The Huffington Post received a clarification of what Tedisco meant by his comment.
"Jim's comments were in response to a question about what voters are asking him about on the campaign trail," writes campaign spokesman Adam Kramer. "So far, the concerns he has been hearing from voters on the campaign trail have been local in nature, such as his support for lower property taxes, fiscal responsibility, and his opponent's appalling support for the AIG bonus loophole. That was his point and any effort to characterize it otherwise is a distortion of the facts."
I don't see this as an apology to Rush, but it's probably only a matter of time.
