The impact of their attack is like waves breaking on a rocky shore, like a chihuahua nipping at your heels.

Ah, well you see, with every similar type of slimy attack folks have flocked to the three of them. You are really doing them quite a good service. Keep up the good work!

Ok, so because their ratings are up it's ok for them to pay actors to call in and pretend to be angry teabaggers.

Well, another made-up, manufactured attack from the Left, like this one you linked to, has helped over the years. Just pointing out that NONE of the attacks from the Left have achieved anything.....but higher ratings for Rush and Fox.

Rush has high ratings because there are millions of ignorant people in the US who are fearful and insecure. He is also a shock jock, just like Howard Stern.

Fox has high ratings because they dumb down their news and have smoking hot women deliver it. I even watch Fox.

This is a very persuasive argument. Anybody who has a different opinion than the left is "ignorant", "fearful" and "insecure". Dale Carnegie? Is that you?
