Here is something I’ve found to be invariably true of the loudest Rush Limbaugh-bashers in Washington and Manhattan:
They don’t actually listen to him and have no idea what he talks about day to day.
They criticize a figment of Rush in their heads, which is echoed and amplified by liberal media elites who share the same figment of Rush in their heads.
And they tell two friends, who tell two more friends. Who turn it into another endless series of liberal Republicans-complain-to-liberal journalists-about-Rush stories.
And so and so on and so on.
Each with nothing better to do, Obama booster Colin Powell and Newsweek’s Fareed Zakaria take their turn lamenting a show they know nothing about:
“Can we continue to listen to Rush Limbaugh?” Powell asked. “Is this really the kind of party that we want to be when these kinds of spokespersons seem to appeal to our lesser instincts rather than our better instincts?”
“We” will continue listening. You just continue sitting there with your left-wing friends carping in ignorance.
Hand in hand with the Rush-bashing, Powell tosses in some indignant Palin-bashing to boot.
