Rush Limbaugh thinks Clint Eastwood "got suckered into" shilling for Democrats in the Chrysler Super Bowl commercial at the center of recent controversy. "I think he got scammed. I think he got roped into doing something he thought was patriotic and ended up being played," Limbaugh said on his radio show today. Conservatives need to make a similar commercial, he says. "We need to have something like this ready to go next August-September when college football kicks up."

The ad's "working together" theme is standard fare for when Democrats are about to face a drubbing, Limbaugh added, according to Politico. "When the Democrats are on the ropes, ‘Time out! Time out, time out! We’ve got to stop all the partisanship,'" he said. "Of course that means, ‘Republicans need to shut up. Stop being critical! We’ve got to all come together now.’” (Read more Clint Eastwood stories.)
