Our Readers Debate
The Buckley Rule was promulgated by the late conservative icon William F. Buckley, Jr., “Nominate the most conservative candidate who is electable.”
The Limbaugh Rule. Limbaugh wants to replace the Buckley Rule with the Limbaugh Rule “In an election year when voters are fed up with liberalism, you vote for the most conservative Republican in the primary — period.” (Proposing his rule before the 2010 election, Limbaugh said we would have to be clairvoyant to use Buckley’s rule. Also, using an illustration to strengthen his argument, he said if we used polling we would not be having Christine O’Donnell--who at the time was down 25 points.)
