Rush Limbaugh Disputes Idea That Palin Critic Charles Krauthammer Is ‘Universally Respected’

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Conservative intellectuals like Charles Krauthammer and George Will have not been shy about their disapproval of Sarah Palin as a potentially serious presidential candidate. A new article in the 'American Thinker' wonders why Republicans must bow down to Krauthammer, a former speechwriter for Walter Mondale, and now Rush Limbaugh weighs in and concludes that in today’s media universe nobody, including Krauthammer, is capable of being universally respected.

Rush Limbaugh: "“Krauthammer in many ways has acquired this respect because in many of the venues he appears, he’s the only conservative. On the local Washington opinion show on Friday night, he’s it. Not so much on the Fox roundtable, but he’s close . . . In the old days, Krauthammer used to say things that nobody else thought. He did have unique takes on things. And so the perception was what you got from Krauthammer was the truth.”
