The responses here tend to be a little flip. Glenn may be cresting in influence and popularity, but none of us should make the mistake of underestimating the liberal-statist smear machine. It is backed by all the broadcast and cable media other than Fox, by 90% or more of the major print media, and by the opinion-makers in Hollywood, college campuses, and the government educational complex. Look what they did to Sarah Palin, George Allen, Dan Quail, Barry Goldwater, Clarence Thomas, Newt Gingrich, Judge Bork, and many other emerging or then-current conservative leaders. Beware. The beast is wounded, but not yet dead.
