Why do you need a liberal Rush Limbaugh when you already have Rosie O'Donnell?
Rosie's not even on the same planet with Rush. The average Democrat barely knows she exists much less respects her. Likewise, there exists many small, Liberal, Limbaughesque talk show hosts, but they will never generate a large national following, because Democrats, and even Far Left Liberals, find those tactics uncivilized. (What tactics? How about constant, brazen, lying Or Rush's idea taken straight from Joseph Goebbels that you don't nead anyother source of information)
NPR is Liberal, they don't admit it, but they know it, everyone knows it, and they know everyone knows it. But as any regular listener knows, they often go through painful contortions to show their efforts at remaining unbiased.
Again, if they lied, distorted, waved the bloody shirt, like Limbaugh, Democrats would simply change the station to something a little less cringe-inducing.
As for Florida, don't make me laugh. The Democrats tried to make sure the votes were counted they way they were in previous elections. What did the Republicans do? They staged a false riot. They took contradictory positions. Count those military votes, even if they were mailed after the election! Let those Broward County Jews go to hell.
They even challenged the legitmacy of the recount, a process as old, and as unchallegenged as any in American Democracy. They whipped the country into crisis mode and then took it to Federal Court, complaining that their wasn't enough time. All this while there still was a political solution to the problem available in the constitution (lord knows why the courts didn't let it play out) that would most likely still have gone in Bush's favor.
In recent years,
Repbulicans are more willing to be slimey to get what they want. They think they are justified, because they are self-righteous. Republicans see the Democrat's revulsion towards those tactics as a weakness (it has been since Watergate) and just another reason the Republicans are better and ought to be slimey to get their way.(it isn't).
It seems strange to me that to the average Republican voter the two main parties seem equally scummy, while to Democrats the difference seems quite clear.
