    d be a regular question for these freaks.

      .... a bunch of questions like that to scope out these peoples' associations and find common threads.  Radio talkers are relevant because their memes may turn up in distinct patterns in the suspects' communications.  

      Some rightie nut recently said on his website, after having endorsed another nut who called for assassination of the President, that when the Secret Service came to visit they had a list of over thirty questions for him.  I'm willing to bet that the list included a bunch of stuff that enables them to build a detailed profile from which inferences can be made to track the guy closely any time he's anywhere within ten miles of an elected official.  

      (He also said the Secret Service sent three agents.  To my mind that's: one to ask the questions, one to write down the answers, and one to pay close attention to discerning whether it appears the person is lying when he answers.  I never anticipated that protocol before, but it sounds darn smart, and very likely to detect people who are making active plans to do harm.  Yes, and multiple witnesses too, in the event of needing to arrest & charge someone.)

      "Minus one vote for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.

        wider scale i don't think i've ever seen it as part of a political polling question- seen fox related questions but not RW radio. it should be part of all polling where teabaggers and the republican base is involved.

        3 well trained agents...

        i wonder if they ever asked limbaugh why he said "obama's head needs to roll" sept 10, 2008.

        limbaugh explained (he was pissed at being slighted in a recent piece in the weekly standard) that republican political consultants always told their clients/candidates not to mention limbaugh's name but that santorum evoked him and lo and behold, he won.

          Sounds like Limburger wants his name mentioned more often.

          OK, we can arrange for that.

          Have our people show up at Ron Paul rallies and start chanting "Ron Paul!  Rush Limbaugh!" (repeat) and get the crowd going along with it.  

          This will get Limbaugh interested in RP.  Perhaps a radio appearance or two, eh?  

          That'll work wonders for the race!  Make the rest of 'em spend more money against RP!  Yeeee-hawww!

          •  he even mentioned when obama named him (0+ / 0-)

            said the first thing obama did when he got in was tell republican senators to stop listening to limbaugh or they wouldn't get anything done.

            i remember that- don't think it was the first thing, but i noted that it was the thing to do, and while obama was immediately criticized all around for lowering himself, the result in media was significant. IMO it was one of the few times that GOP media operatives and politicians we associated with limbaugh and for a couple of weeks they had the limbaugh brand on their foreheads, slimed with him. was one of the best periods the media ever gave obama early on. maybe some idiots advised him not to keep getting limbaugh on him but naming limbaugh routinely would be very good for democrats and liberals.

            the ron paul contingent scares limbaugh for its independence from GOP but it'd be great to see that - makes a good chant...

              And:

              "maybe some idiots advised him not to keep getting limbaugh on him but naming limbaugh routinely would be very good for democrats and liberals."

              Who is "he" and who is "him," and is it the same "him" throughout?

              Use all the letters you need to spell it out clearly, this isn't the telegraph where you pay by the number of letters:-)
