Rush Limbaugh's defense: Always blame the media
I wonder, is there a conservative out there who does not blame the media for … whatever. Whenever they say something ridiculous or outlandish, which is about 90 percent of the time, they blame their favorite whipping boy, the media. They can get caught red-handed, with their hands in the cookie jar, and it’s inevitably the media’s fault. No matter that the media is as conservative as they are.
Limbaugh said the Wie phenomenon is all about marketing. Yet, when Time reported that, and not the rest of Limbaugh’s words of wisdom, he’s like all, what’s up with that?
I happen to agree with the fat-head about Wie. I wouldn’t object to what Time did. It’s gotten to the point of a knee-jerk response with conservatives. I’m sure when the mid-term elections boot out the conservatives, they will blame TravelGolf.

I find it hard believe anyone can be that stupid but you do keep pushing the envelope.
Conservatives can't open their mouths about anything because it's seen through the prism of the bias people have against them -- as shown by the snide, childish comments in this article. Wow, you got everything in there even "fat." How adult. How keeping to the issue at hand, which is that you apparently agree with him. But you aren't brave enough to just do that. No, first you have to make your bones with the liberal though police by rattling off a string of insults that have nothing at all to do with golf.
You broad brush paint all liberals of broad brush painting conservatives. You are doing to liberals exactly what you accuse liberals of doing to conservatives. I'm a moderate, but I know lots of liberals and conservatives who are very open to contrary opinions and are capable of listening as well as talking. Maybe you should tone down your rhetoric.
Once again instead of a well thought out articulate blog, we get name-calling.
What was this post about anyway?
"I wouldn't object to what Time did."
Why, Tim McDonald?
Maybe you just wanted to complain about Rush and call him names instead of articulate your position.
From what I've seen of your posts, I wouldn't expect anything else.
Seriously, on one hand, you have the wild success of Limbaugh vs. the struggling Air America. On the other, there is this supposed flood of liberal media outlets (see EricB's comment above). If all these major media outlets with their enormous viewer/readerships are so liberal, how come those viewers/readers don't turn elections toward liberal candidates? And why do truly liberal media like Air America struggle so?
In truth, ALL MEDIA in the US are after advertising money and competing with entertainment outlets for people's time and eyeballs. As a result, they paint the most simiplistic picture possible, color everything in black and white, fail miserably in educating people about issues, and most of all, do everything they can to appeal to the most potential customers as possible to make the biggest profit possible. (Those who do not, struggle.)
This is hardly a liberal pursuit.
Just read the news. It's a political liability to follow the Prez right now.
P.S. I'm a Republican.
I think a lot of republicans feel left out in the cold lately. The current era of conservatism really only seems to mean social conservatism. Fiscal conservatism or small government? Those parts of the republican platform seem to have been quietly removed.
Luckily for republicans, democrats continually prove themselves inept to take advantage, but it still seems odd that so much of what a republican is supposed to be now is defined by the religious right.
You've got it exactly. I voted for Bush (pre 9/11) purely for fiscal conservatism and less government. Also, because Gore didn't seem like the brightest candle on the mantlepiece.
The idealogues have taken over. Maybe if the Repubs return to their roots, I'll return. Coulter, Limbaugh, Fox News, ugh...how about a return to moderation?
A person less likely to have a heart attack...
With regards to how my beloved Republican party has sunk the past couple years, I'll just say,
When the monkeys relinquish the elephant cage, I will return to the circus.
