It's funny listening to the Left and the Centrists take the opportunity presented by the election to attack Limbaugh, Hannity, Levine, Beck and the other conservative talk show hosts. The narrative is that these talk show hosts gained too much power in the Republican Party and they pulled the party way too far toward the crazy far rightwing. I don't think many of these Leftists or Centrists listen very much to Limbaugh or Beck or understand them if they do listen. The Left and the Center have no sense of humor when it comes to the likes of Limbaugh and Beck, because they see two confident, influential voices that they can't bring down, and it drives them crazy, so all humor is gone. The Left and the Center are so frustrated that they can't do anything to destroy the Limbaugh/Beck voices when they hear that one of these conservatives has said something controversial they spin it in the worst ways possible. They smear the conservative talk show hosts every chance they get.
I listen to Rush and Beck, and I think they make very good points sometimes, and at other times I think they are off base. It's odd that the Left and the Center are so bothered by these radio personalities -- it feels as if they want badly to censor them and are pissed off because they can't. I don't like listening to Rachel Maddow's belligerent bullcrap, so I don't.
It's really amazing listening to the reaction of the Left and Center regarding this election. They must think they have some great advantage to really let it fly what they think about talk radio hosts, Tea Partiers, libertarians, etc. It's all being recorded somewhere, and it'll come back to bite them, but for now, it's amusing, especially given the fact they have no idea how Obama is going to get out of the mess statism has us in, or how Obama will escape the truth about his lies regarding Benghazi. The next 6 months are going to be hard for Obama and co. I guess, hell, the way the media is now they might be able to ignore it for four years.
