When I first read the headline, I thought, "Now Limbaugh's gone too far."
However, having read the article, I can see that there is a chance that the Democrat Convention could be the scene of riots given the rift between the
ideology and the demographics of the candidates and their supporters.
Limbaugh cited Al Sharpton, saying the Barack Obama supporter threatened to superdelegates that "there's going to be trouble" if the
presidency is taken from Obama.
It sounds to me that it's Sharpton who's calling for riots, if that quote is accurate.
I can see how such an event would be catastrophic for the Democrat party.
I can't justify Limbaugh's reveling in such a possibility, but I've always said that Limbaugh is an entertainer and a ratings whore, so his views
shouldn't carry as much weight as they do, especially with the left.
I never listen to Limbaugh, so the only way I know what he's saying is when his detractors post here. That's free publicity for Limbaugh.
As for riots in Denver, it could happen, but if the conventions are handled this year as they were in 2004, it's doubtful that anything very large
could take place without being quashed in a hurry.
I must echo Limbaugh's thesis, however. Nothing could hurt the Democrats more than for a bunch of anarchists, left-wing radicals, and "truthers"
to show up and get out of hand.
McCain is too close to being a Democrat for the Democrats to let something like that happen. The swing voters wouldn't think twice about pulling the
lever for McCain in November.
