Don't bum rush rush.
In the article "Is Conservatism Dead?" by Patrick Krey (January 19 issue), I feel that I need to defend Rush Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh is a war lover, as are most American men, be they liberal or conservative--so I cut him slack on that issue, as I do the rest of the war lovers (the military, etc).
Also, Krey knocked Rush for praising the appointment of Hillary as "brilliant." What Krey did not realize was that it was sarcasm of a sort--that it is best to keep the weaselly Clintons in full view so everyone can see them mess up. It's best not to leave rats in the shadows. Good issue!
