Default Re: Rave On (Robert Wright & Ann Althouse)

I think Rush Limbaugh is a fool, but you have to admire his coherency. He doesn't try to portray himself as a left winger or even a centrist. Althouse has every right to speak her outlandish right wing views. She just has to stop insulting our intelligence by claiming to be mostly leftist. In Europe, she would be joining a ultra-right wing party, and even then...
I'm not quite sure it's accurate to say Ann Althouse identifies as a "leftist." Afterall, she uses that term disparagingly all the time. But point well taken. And I too am so sick of the but-I-voted-for-Obama statements. I just hope she stays true to her true cause, Republicanism, and votes Republican in the next presidential election.

Point taken!
