Rush is absolutely NOT part of our movement and he's obviously trying to co-opt it. However, the fact that he's acknowledging Ron Paul like this might mean that he can't *not* talk about it anymore. I think his listeners were dwindling (though he still has a lot of them) and so he needs to appeal to a wider audience. But it's the same co-opt the message type stuff as always. He acts like he's part of (and always has been part of) the liberty movement.
Also, I love the sentence below. If any of his listeners think Ron Paul is "kookville" it's probably because Rush has hammered that into their brains during the campaign. His use of the word "we" is sickening though. Rush, as far as the liberty movement goes, you are NOT part of "WE".
"I know a lot of you think we're listening to kookville here, but, for me, this nails it. We are the party of liberty."
