Alinsky Rules in Action

Alinsky Rule 11: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame.

Rahm Emanuel, Obama's chief of staff, decided to attack Rush Limbaugh, radio talk show host, and label him the head on the Republican Party.
Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.

The way the Democrat leadership jumps everytime Limbaugh speaks, I think he's really the head of the Democrat Party.

Rush is like the mouse pulling the lion's whiskers. It is delightful to watch. Don
