    All I am saying is that the right really doesn't like them, but I doubt that they would say it is because they nail their asses. The right thinks that Stewart is a liberal blowhard, and the left thinks that Limbaugh is a conservative blowhard.

    Opposition will never do Rush in. Apathy will if he sticks around long enough. Younger Gen X-ers and millennials are distracted by a wealth of other options and not politically engaged enough to spend 3 hours a day listening to the same show. He is not gaining new listeners at the young end nearly as fast as the older ones are assuming room temperature, as he himself would say.

    And you wonder how these guys remain in a party that promotes Donald Trump, Herman Cain, Huckabee, and Sarah Pallin?

    A party leadership of media whores...

    I think you are confusing them with keith Olberman. No. He no longer has a show. Or a job.

    Is there a reason someone cannot be humble because the are on the radio?

    There is no doubt his satire works...

    As oppose to... who? Name names. Who are the liberal Democrats of similar prominence that one should more proudly associate with?

    Typically, Dave's not up to speed. He'll probably blame someone for his mistake of not knowing the news. :whistle:

    Of course, not one liberal addressed the message. They won't.

    The entertainer, Obama, lied about being able to keep your doctor.

    Of course, as a citizen, you become desensitized to all of the lies the American Putin has told.

    In a liberal's world without absolutes, that's perfectly ok.

    Pathetic.

    On keith Olbermann? No. I freely admit that I have no such infatuation, or even interest in him as some here have with Limbaugh.

    Please... Carry on.

    Very good aritcle on Rush Limbaugh and why he spews so much hatred.

    "Don't Call Rush Limbaugh a Racist"

    "He's a cynical businessman who plays on the anxieties of his listeners. His object is to provoke outrage and garner attention. And so he calculates. How to spin the day's news in the most offensive way imaginable?........The more serious and accurate critique is that he deliberately plays on the racial sensitivities of minorities and liberals, and intentionally provokes the racial anxieties of his listeners. In doing so, he exploits one of the most sensitive and historically fraught divides in American society for the sake of lucre."

    What a load of crap.

    Can't factually disagree with his opinions? Then attack him personally.

    Comes right out of Saul A's manifesto.

    Years ago Rush demonized some people and a situation that I had personal knowledge of. He ascribed the most cynical, twisted, and craven political motives to a some people who were not at all political and were just doing their job for little pay. He twisted every day actions and words to fit his distorted view. He bullied them for many days and they just took it with no real recourse except whatever comfort that knowing the truth could bring them. He is putrid.
