"Well, you ought to report child abuse. Of course it wouldn't go anywhere in the politically cowered, politically coward-ed New York City school system."
There was no mention of the fact that yours truly originated the concept and has used politically cowered, politically cowed, and political cowering regularly ever since as replacements for political correctness and PC and politically correct.
This from the talk show host who regularly complains about others stealing his words and giving him no credit.
But then again I've railed about all of radio's allegedly conservative talkers for quite some time.
People, the reason that talk radio has been so successful is because conservatives were forced into feeling desperate that MSM never granted their views a fair chance.
This has been my long standing theory:
Rush Limbaugh and Roger Ailles were granted access to the Sacramento Bee's Letter to the Editor some time in the late 1980s.How long have I had these thoughts? Since around 1992, which was shortly after I was told:
They witnessed all the well written criticisms of modern liberalism that were thrown into the Bee's trash bin.
Roger Ailles recognized the broadcast vacuum that represented the absence of these thoughts, and he saw a huge money making opportunity.
That was the beginning of the rise of Rush Limbaugh and Roger Ailles into broadcast history and multimillions of dollars.
"Hey, you sound like Rush."People listen up:
"What's a rush?" I responded.
Talk radio is not inventing conservative thoughts. It is the echo chamber of your thoughts. And in many ways, it is the place where your thoughts are discredited, by everything from Dr. Savage's hostile rages and huge ego to Rush often behaving like he's joined at the hip to establishment Republicans.
Take your thoughts back and claim them as your own. So the next time when some one says you sound like Rush, or Sean or Glenn or Savage or Levin or whoever, correct them and say:
"Hell, no. He sounds a little like me all the while missing many of the things that are important to me."The question may come back "Like what?" And there's your opportunity.
Be prepared for it.
