Frank Rich: Why Liberals Are No Fun
It wasn't in prime time, and the ratings weren't even on the charts. But in the 24/7 broadcasting arena of political talk, where liberals are on the losing side at least 22/7, they must take whatever scraps they can get.

4. OK-I read it
Good article with many excellent points. Still doesn't diminish the fact that people who watch Faux and listen to Limpballs are idiots who evidently vote.

6. Look At Him, Rehashing Gore's Make-up
During the 2000 debates, instead of poining out that Gore handed Bush's rhetorical ass in those debates. But yet Rich, just like all the other media whores, decided to focus on the image instead of the substance.

And notice how he trots out that bogus "Love Story" scandal once again?

Really, who's side is he on?

I grok the "let's pretend it wasn't a gay slur for the good of the motherland" perspective, but sewing a pink triangle on journalists who don't toe the party line?

9. He's just trying to help and
keep in mind that there's a stupid policy that gives EDITORS the authority to write the captions to the articles written by the actual writers (who are considered to be "underlings"). Who knows that title Rich might have wanted, maybe "Why Limbaugh should be called 'Limpballs' ".
