Though, what's important about Rush is not himself, but the millions of people who listen to him. It's not like people are completely brainless. Rush doesn't exactly control every movement of his followers. What's the word? Dittohead?
I think it's important to really get at the grievances of the people and address the underlying concerns. It's also unhelpful when the left just insults the right and dismisses their concerns and labels them idiots; and obviously, vice versa. Every rant is not about the rant. I wish people would spend time trying to fix the source of the problems, but as far as I know, I'm the only one interested in that.
