Rush Limbaugh resigns as 'titular' head of GOP; obviously has no idea what that word means

Somebody should get Rush Limbaugh a dictionary app for his iPhone.

Limbaugh says he is resigning as the "titular head of the Republican Party." He says he never sought the job, and doesn't want it anymore, and is therefore abdicating the position and anointing Colin Powell as his replacement.

Except that nobody who knows the meaning of the word "titular" has referred to Limbaugh as the "titular head' of the Republican Party. The titular head of the Republican Party is RNC Chair Michael Steele. He holds the title. He is, therefore, the 'titular head' of the party.

I guess what Limbaugh is trying to say is that he no longer wishes to be the de facto head of the Republican Party.

Too bad for him, and especially bad for the GOP, that it's not up to him.
