Question: What's worse than an overrated anti-war protest?
Answer: "Conservative" radio "personalities" being so scared of overrated anti-war protesters that they whitewash their websites. Like our "Make It Up as You Go Along" Weekly Award Winner, Rush Limbaugh!
What a piece of work this guy is. And before you conservatives jump the gun, I listened to homeboy's show for years, and watched his TV show when it was syndicated all those years ago (when he had a real fanbase). Dude has his moments, and he can be really funny when not in the depths of an oxycontin binge, but he's the pioneer of the "What Conservatives Don't Like Today and Why Liberals Are to Blame Radio." Which is like today's version of yellow journalism. He was writing the right's playbook back when he still had a shot of having a sports journalism career (he screwed that up by saying Donovan McNabb of the Philadelphia Eagles was overrated because he was dark of complexion, for those who have forgotten).
So, here he is backing off his comments on the Cindy Sheehan story. It's easy to whitewash your boo-boos when you require folks to sign up for your sensory overload website. (And this is the guy who used to criticize the left for not being forthcoming with what they said...) I went there so I could double check Olbermann's reporting, and I found this link for August 15. Not much there if you're not a subscriber. So much for that "full disclosure" thing.
What is very, very interesting is the link at the bottom of the page, comparing Howard Dean and Senator John McCain, and making fun of both of them. When I clicked on the transcript link of the "Why Conservatives don't like John McCain" I was directed this interview.
But what I really don't get is why a "conservative" shill like Rush Lim-blah would make fun of and prepare his reader/listenership to criticize Arizona Republican Senator John McCain, Decorated Vietnam Veteran. McCain is one of the strongest frontrunners, among voters in both Republican and Democratic camps for the Presidency in 2008!
I guess that's what the right wing really thinks about constructive conservatism and the American Consensus: they don't like it! Pay attention all you Moderate Republicans, you cats are being marginalized by the shill machine of your own party. They defend indefensible comments from "God needs you to give me money and assassinate people I don't like" Pat Robertson and make gaffes at the expense of really real conservatives who are proven and effective leaders like Arizona Republican Senator John McCain, Decorated Vietnam Veteran.
Just thought I'd bring that to your attention.
