You are describing the very thing that I dislike about my job. I have to know everything about everything while the people who will come after me only need to know Human Resources or Advertising or the most recent price changes for THEIR particular department. I might look like an idiot after they get to my third or even second level responses but none of them could answer questions outside of their area of expertise.

Parts of that I can definitely relate to. I despise having to pander or kowtow to people whose jobs I'm certain I could do effectively, but who don't stand a chance of doing what I do.

I quit allowing these people to disturb me years ago. I just slowly quit caring about them. I don't have to sleep with them, so I don't have to give a crap about them.

I like a rigged game. If I know the limitations going in, then I will adjust and everything will work out fine.

Easy for me to day when the end is closer than the beginning.

I can't stand even watching the LOCAL NEWS because of the hype anymore, much less watch one of these scripted three ring circus sideshows!
None of those pompous fucking windbags would stand a chance here!
They'd be bawling like little babies after trying to get all tough with someone and then getting beat down by three or four members in a row. Does this sound familiar, mlfy?

He would in all probability, have his ass handed to him here by any number of posters. A different skill set is required to excel in this venue, as opposed to that in which Mr. Limbaugh operates. Take away his control and his support staff, and he would be forced to rely on a different skill set. A glib tongue does not necessarily equate to a pithy pen and a terse presentation. Like anything else, experience is paramount. Unless Rush goes home and posts on forums every night after work, he'd stand little chance of holding his own in the bigs.

As a neophyte yourself, you can do so all day long. Your suggestion is no different than my suggestion that I could better Rush in front of a microphone. You should ask yourself why you've placed this man of modest intellect on such a high pedestal. Strange, that...
