Let's say you have some friends and/or relatives who haven't figured out yet that it's not all that smart to get their news from people whose entire economic model is based upon keeping those friends and/or relatives pissed off. And let's say those friends and/or relatives occasionally puke back at you the "arguments" of the professionally angry class. You've certainly learned by now that disputing the hot-buttered bloviations of a Rush Limbaugh or a Glenn Beck is no more sensible than Bill Nye debating that creationist -- these are articles of (angry!) faith.
Sitting and yelling all day probably isn't good for you.
And attacks upon the yellers' character don't work, either. You won't get anywhere pointing out the obvious fact that Limbaugh gags like that "Barack the Magic Negro" song are racist according to the rules of The Price Is Right -- designed to come as close to hate speech as possible without going over.
Better, perhaps, to forward clips like this one, which exposes the sad truth of that yelling meat-sack's daily three-hour radio shows: For huge chunks of time, he's just pretending to be mad about stories he hasn't even read, watched, or had adequately summarized to him.More »
