More Crap From The Left
The March 2003 Esquire (no link; why increase their Google score?) has a short interview with Nation communist--err, columnist Eric Alterman (nl;wihGs?), who just scraped together a book-length hack job (nl;wiiGs?) on Coulter and Limbaugh, among others. Among his nuggets of wisdom:
- When asked whether he thought engaging in a dialogue with Ann Coulter is a mistake: "I debase myself every time I say her name. That's why I said from the beginning that it's gonna [sic] take a lot of money to get me to do this." Silly me - I thought money issues were only the concern of rich evil conservatives.
- "Now, I happen to think the country is to the left of not just Republicans but the Democrats on most issues." Sure. This explains the landslide of Green and Socialist winners in the off-year elections.
- "I hate to say it, but I wish the guy [Limbaugh] had gone deaf. I shouldn't say that, but on behalf of the country, it would be better without Rush Limbaugh and his 20 million listeners." I bet a dollar that he enjoyed saying that.
And they call conservatives hateful and mean-spirited. Riiiiiight.
In other news, I think I've figured out why a liberal talk-radio programming slate won't work: because all six people who'd listen to it are already listening to NPR (National People's Radio)!
