One of the great things about Rush is that he is civil 97.9% of the time. Is that not a path to success?
Following that, would you deny that a lot of the posts on the “Wall to Wall Russert on Morning Shows” and “Tim Russert’s Testimony Sent Scooter Libby To Jail” were ad hominem attacks and illogical arguments? Not all, but there sure were a lot.
I don’t “make it a habit” but standing by while people take this forum and use Kos-ite/DU- style attacks tends to bother me.
Sarcasm, exaggeration and hyperbole are all common methods of making points but you must agree that to say there is something seemingly pathologically wrong with people when they say in regards to Russerts death (and within hours of the announcement) Didn’t like Russert at all. What’s with FReepers sudden adoration of people like Paul Newman, Tim Russert, even Ted Kennedy in his illness? Sheesh. Conservatives are off their rocker. Or Russert was the master of subtlety when it came to furthering the DNC agenda... and questioning GOP motives. Or, I always thought of him as a typical Drive By Media - DNC mouthpiece. And, my personal favorite: Anyone who watched him knew he was a Leftist propagandist about 90% of the time.
If Im reading this stuff, how wonderful would it be if Obermann, Mathews, Blitzer, Combs and Co. began to read this crap on the air?
BTW: The 15 posts and no prayers was a true observation. It was on of those things that makes me go “Hmmmm?”
