Rush hits the mark
Excellent rant on Товарищ McCain and global warming. One perfect statement:
"It is frustrating that all the candidates for President - candidates who have access to all kinds of information that we can't get - are LESS INFORMED than I am, LESS INFORMED than you listeners are."
Says it all.
Except it's really worse. They're not LESS informed, they are NEGATIVELY informed. They are all in the grip of a total lie.
Will Rush do something about this directly? Will he try to engage Товарищ McCain in direct debate? Or try to get Товарищ McCain to debate someone like Fred Singer? Rush may not have unique info, but he does have unique access. A brand-R candidate will at least answer Rush's phone calls.

Next day: Interesting. Today Rush says that yesterday's show - which I thought was among his very best - was awful, and that he's ashamed of it. He rarely departs from his "I am always perfect" ego shtick, so he must have been seriously bothered by that show. Today, which he thinks is better, is actually one of his worst performances. He's Chatty Cathy on the standard talking points (zero zip nada taxes is the cure for all ills) and his sentences are getting tangled up.
It's a common problem. I had the same problem when teaching ... on the days when I thought my lecture was perfect, the students were lost, and on the days when I felt useless and blank, the students learned plenty. Similarly with graphics products: when I do a perfect job, pour my soul into it, nobody buys it. When I slap something together quickly, it sells well.
This is why editors and 'selectors' have a necessary job. The talents of production are separate from the talents of predicting audience response.
