Rush: Far Cry


Now that David Frum's a kind of conservative ronin -- having been banished from the ranks of the right for the crime of blasphemy -- he's doubling down on his new status as the voice of reason among Republicans.

Here he does something most on the right wouldn't dare even think about: he puts Rush Limbaugh's political and cultural "influence" into perspective.

Mediaite: Frum Cuts Limbaugh's Influence Down to Size/4.5.10

I was watching Conservative pundit David Frum with Howard Kurtz, host of CNN's “Reliable Sources” and it compelled me to start a rumor...

But first, let me just mention that in my opinion David Frum is good on TV, and I feel bad for him for being fired, he's obviously talented, and well worth the hundred grand.

The rumor, since it is hard to know whether it was arranged or really just accidental, is that Howard is imitating or maybe a better word, reproducing this blog, like watching Deus Ex Malcontent on TV.

Seriously, for instance, The Politico is here, it's on-air with Howard. The iPad is here, it's on-air with Howard, David Frum is here, he's on-air with Howard... All in nice fast hitting segments. No wonder I enjoyed it!

To be honest, if you like reading this blog, and this is just an opinion, you are going to find that CNN's “Reliable Sources” is pretty good TV! Maybe even better than American Idol or playing Xbox!

Extra point to you for the Snakes And Arrows reference...
