Rush Limbaugh has a new opponent within the Republican Party to deal with, perhaps his toughest one yet: John McCain's mother, Roberta.

Roberta McCain was on Jay Leno's show Wednesday night, and he asked her for her feelings on the radio host. She responded, "I belong to the Republican Party... what he thinks about or represents of the Republican Party has nothing to do with my side of it. I don't know what the man means, I don't know what he's talking about."

 As with any fight where mothers are involved, this one could get nasty.
