Durst: Rush Limbaugh
The Museum of Radio and Television held a panel discussion about the importance of talk radio on the political arena. One of the complaints heard was there was no one on the left to balance Rush Limbaugh. And there won't be until Shamu gets a talk show. That's not ozone depletion causing ocean levels to rise, its Rush on vacation snorkeling. Limbaugh is a bully. He's got the subtlety of a grenade and the grace of a oil rig. The only way to figure his popularity is there's an undiscovered element of physics where people's opinions are being sucked into his gravitational force. I don't know which twisted path this country tripped down but it must have taken a header into a sharp stone wall to start thinking the poor and helpless were the enemy. Maybe it's time we collectively sit down, take a couple of deep breaths and start targeting smug bloated right wing hood wearing freaks preaching intolerance as the bad guys. Why aren't there any good left wing talk show hosts? Because liberals think for themselves. Which for listeners of Mr. Limbaugh and his mutant legion of wannabees is strictly verboten. You know, it was intolerant crap like this that got the Puritans kicked out of England the first time. Wonder if there's any room left in Australia?
