Az,

I think this getting worn down. The Franken show is apparently an attempt to gather support from the population of people who are influenced by this method. The intended audience is probably not made up of people who consider themselves liberals already. The target audience is probably your fellow Rush listeners, and the fact that a similar tool is being used to craft and present the message in order to appeal to people who find this means of communicating compelling is not novel. Lexus copied Mercedes for years and won many Mercedes customers with cars that looked and acted much like Mercedes. Franken may be hoping for the same results. I doubt he will be successful, as I don't think this is a truthfully liberal means to get the message out.

I agree. The left needs another vehicle. What do you suppose it could be?

RE: Shush Rush?

Why does it have to be the LEFT? Why do you designate a whole group of people into one loaded word? Hate and fear maybe?

You may need to follow the discussion from the beginning to get the gist of it. My kids think they can enter a conversation in the middle of it and ask 50 irrelevant Q's to catch up too.

RE: Shush Rush?

Well, Jim,
It is nice to be able to agree on something. I agree with you that the president is not a conservative. I will watch, with interest, the developments, particularly with an eye to increasing the power of the executive. I hear all the comparisons to Hitler, and they just do not communbicate. I agree, it is best to be wary, and so I like to see the use of checks on the power of all branches of governemt. It may be that Bush is grabbing power, but his term is limited; I do not see any movement to try to appoint him as Reich's Chancellor for life, nor do I see the armed forces pledging their loyalty to him. Every time I see a comparison to Hitler, I wonder if the person making the comparison has any idea of the true evil that was Hitler. I believe that you have the historical perspective to understand that, so your use of the comparison is even more puzzling. Now, if Bush starts to say that, due to the extreme nature of the terrorist threat, we must not hold the regularly schedules elections, and his term will be extended indefinitely, then I might join you in the Hitler-speak. I will also be worried if I see Bush surround himself with violent homosexuals who run his personal police force. This I consider, very unlikely.
