A Big Fat Idiot Indeed
On Monday I asked my students if Rush Limbaugh really should be considered the voice of the Republican party and, if so, what does that say about the party and about media. Most of them had never heard of Limbaugh and thought it was a lot about nothing. Today they were amazed at the legs the story had, and wondered how I had know it would be a big deal? Simple: I watch MSNBC.
The consensus is that the whole thing shows how fractured the party is. My friend Warren says it indicates that the Regan revolution is now dead. One can only hope.
