Two weeks ago, Rush Limbaugh, the popular talk radio host and conservative icon, was taking a walk outside of his home in West Palm Beach when he struck up a conversation with two people wearing Florida Gators t-shirts. During the brief chat, one of the fans asked Limbaugh who he thought would be the right person to steer the Republican Party in the right direction.
Limbaugh, a die-hard football fan who spent a stint as a studio personality for ESPN’s Sunday Countdown, jokingly quipped that he thought Tim Tebow would be the perfect choice.
What started as an off-the-cuff remark has turned into a minor movement that appears to be gaining momentum by the day. One of the people Limbaugh was talking with was Horace White, a key member of the Republican Party of Florida who mulled over the concept of Tebow, a registered Republican, trying to do for the struggling party what he has done for the Gators by being the leader and the figurehead for the party.
He'd tour the country, make speeches, and inspire people by simply being Tim Tebow.
