In the 1930s, a story is told of a Jewish man, Rosenberg, who was riding on the subway in NYC, reading an Nazi propaganda newspaper. Goldstein, a friend of his, who happened to be riding in the same subway car, noticed this strange phenomenon. Very upset, he approached the newspaper reader.That is exactly why I like listening to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham. Sometimes Mike Savage or Bob Grant although they're completely nuts.
Goldstein says, "Rosenberg, have you lost your mind? Why are you reading a Nazi propaganda newspaper?"
Rosenberg replies, "I used to read everyday, the Jewish Daily Forward newspaper, but what did I find? Jews being persecuted, Jews being attacked, Jews being taken to concentration camps, Jews living in ghettos. So I switched to the Nazi propaganda newspaper. Now what do I find? Jews own all the banks, Jews control the media, Jews are all rich and powerful, Jews rule the world. Their news is so much better!"
They say over and over again how the liberals [or 'Libs' as Levin likes to say] control the media, the current polls, the banking industry, the entertainment media, unions, the newspapers. Their news is so much better than say NPR or Air America news.
Of course, they have Rovian code names for all these like "Main Stream Liberal" media [or for Rush it's the 'drive-by media'], the Hollywood Elite, the Big Unions, Femi-nazis. They tag Obama with terms like the Annointed One or The Messiah. Although it does puzzle me how those conservative folks like Limbaugh with huge ratings can claim that they themselves are not also 'Main Stream' media.
Lately, though, Limbaugh et al are getting nearly apoplectic over the Obama poll numbers.
They blame bad polling techniques. Limbaugh declared the Powell endorsement was "all about race", and nothing more. Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin have thrown every they can at Obama---calling him unpatriotic, a socialist, a radical, a radical socialist, liberal, leftwing, and 'that one'.
Limbaugh even so far as to call upon conservatives to visit the ailing stock market as Obama was visiting his ailing grandmother in Hawaii.
Limbaugh is losing it.
