By listening to Limbaugh, the blogs argued, the Republicans who turned Democratic just to vote for Clinton and prolong the Democrats' nomination race were in danger of flouting election law, which requires party switchers to believe in their new party's ideals. Limbaugh, the blogs said, was inciting them.
