kaystreet at The Fifth Column tells us about a conversation on The Rush Limbaugh Show when caller blogger Mike Stark succeeded in getting through on the air last week. Stark has done this a few times.)
I heard the conversation in real time – serendipity! I tune in most weeks for about five minutes just to keep track of the current script and was lucky enough to catch what to me was a most entertaining segment.
kaystreet tells us: “Mike called Limbaugh to find out why all the big hoopla about Reagan when Reagan raised taxes, negotiated with terrorists . . . [gave] amnesty to undocumented workers, and he cut and ran from Lebanon. The kicker is that Mike was quite polite and actually made Limbaugh tongue tied with his remarks. Limbaugh never answered the question. Instead, he attacked Mike Stark.”
The transcript is at kaystreet and at Stark’s site, Stark Reports.
The part that I found most interesting was that, Limbaugh’s bloviation at the end of the call clearly showed he was knowledgable enough to have a conversation with Stark about his questions. But he didn’t. He chose instead to insult, attack, and mock. The usual.
