Has the day finally arrived? Is Mr. Bouncy-Bouncy’s reign of fear crumbling?
FOX News is once again surprising me. It’s 6:45 pm and Brett Baier has convened his panel. He plays a bit of Limbaugh from the radio today wherein he railed at who-knows-who and downright and cynically mocks the memorial service in Tucson.
Charles Krauthhamer does not love Rush Limbaugh! Juan Williams does not love Rush Limbaugh! They were quite dismissive of the comments they heard. And – they did not walk back their own comments. Is it possible that folks aren’t as afraid of the un-citizen as they once were?
If anyone starts walking back, bet it’s Limbaugh – tomorrow.
(And zounds! Just switched to MSNBC where I heard the tail end of a report about some trouble in radio land. A local station has pulled down its Limbaugh billboards today after the totally tasteless comments. An early and incomplete story here. )
UPDATE – CORRECTION – the billboard was taken down Monday before the fat man’s vulgarity of today. Not clear exactly who pulled it down – the language at the two places I’ve read the story is ambiguous.)
