Chris Matthews held a discussion regarding Rush' influence and was visibly beside himself after witnessing the sight of a sitting congressman pleading for a "Radio Giant's" mercy.

CHRIS MATTHEWS: ...the congressman, because he come (sic) back and grovelled at the altar of - GOD! (incredulous) Rush Limbaugh. What a sight!... (laughs) You can see who's got the power here
JOAN WALSH: Yes. He's licking his boots. Let's be honest. Have you ever seen anything more pathetic than this display?...

Norah O’Donnell to Mike Pence: Why are you so beholden to Rush Limbaugh?
A lefty friend e-mailed me this afternoon before this even aired asking why MSNBC was running so many segments today on Limbaugh being the new head of the GOP. Answer: For the same reason Obama name-checked him in that meeting with Republicans leaders last week, knowing full well that it’d leak. The more the left builds him up, the more they can tar the whole GOP with whatever controversial thing he’ll say tomorrow.
