re: #140 Cato the Elder

It’s one thing to dislike the Obama administration - that’s the loyal opposition la Commentary magazine.

It’s quite another to foster full-on, balls-out, brain-off ODS as part of a ratings strategy.

As you say.

Look, Rush Limbaugh is a clever man who can talk for three hours at a time. It’s not a talent I possess, and I wouldn’t know what to say, faced with a microphone every morning. He says a lot of profoundly silly things. He says some interesting things. He sometimes puts facts together and comes up with idiocy, and sometimes does so and comes up with something brilliant. He claims to have core beliefs, and I’ll take him at his word. I’ll assume that he has some beliefs, and the ability to improvise and vamp on the themes he chooses, and I hope he’ll entertain me. My day usually involves either truly turgid writing or numbers, and I need entertainment.

What I won’t do is take political or life advice from him.
