Well, it seems in classic leftist "Nah Nah Nah Nah Poo Poo" fashion, the left is attempting to belittle Rush, by throwing names and making references to Archie Bunker.
At Huffington Post, one of the favorite websites for the five percent of Americans who consider themselves Progressives, the very creator of All In The Family, Mr. Norman Lear, has offered a reply that is a perfect snapshot of the difference between the political left and political right in America today.
While Rush offered facts about specific missteps taken during Obama's first year, Mr. Lear, albeit a writer of comedy television, offers not much more than a drama queen's hissy fit in response.
From Huffington Post:
Yesterday, driving to work I listened to Rush Limbaugh read a letter he'd written to President Obama. I listen to Limbaugh because he reminds me of the carnival barkers of my youth, men who were selling elixirs, snake oil, or inviting you for an extra 50 cents to check out the half man/half woman in the secreted tent. They were quaint and harmless compared to the barking Limbaugh who yesterday would have us believe -- he actually said this! -- the President was seeking to destroy the country so that he might then save it.
The rest of the day, last night, and this morning I couldn't stop thinking about the ugly, vindictive, dispiriting and reprehensible things barker Limbaugh had to say about our President. I ached to answer him but couldn't find the words. And then I remembered a scene in an episode of All In The Family when Maude, who later starred in her own series, came to visit Archie. Archie was sitting in his chair. Maude was standing beside him and they were fighting about the legacy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Finally, Archie who was rewriting history in this argument said something so misguided and distasteful that Maude could not find the words to respond with. All but choking with frustration, her entire body seemingly ready to burst, all she could say was: "You're Fat!"
After a lifetime of trying to reach the El Rushbos of my life, all I can say is: "You're FAT!"
As usual, the Conservative mind is able to offer facts and ideas; the leftist only presents name calling and ad hominem attacks.
Thank you, Mr. Lear. In writing this one letter, you have made a case for me that I couldn't make better myself.
