  •  I had to go with Beck. (8+ / 0-)

    Because he was like... the republican metaphor made manifest.

    He came out of nowhere with a sense of undue self importance. From there, he spewed an endless stream of anti-everything-that-wasnt-his-favored-position. A blast of conspiracy theories, some so outlandish as to make you think it might be performance art.

    Crammed full of religious and apocalyptic imagery, he charged like a madman to get the support of one faction, who could be used to make a lot of noise for issues they didn't understand, even when it contradicted things he'd earlier said.

    And then, in a flash, he vanished. All relevance gone, hardly a memory remaining; just like every single 'scandal' the republicans try to lay on democrats. It got burned out so fast that it simply vanished away.

    Really, its basically every single thing that the republicans have done, their entire way of operating, focused into one lunatic.

    Limbaugh is a vile person, but he has far too much staying power to truly represent what it means to be an insane rightwing hack.

    "Trust not the words of a poet, as he is born to seduce. Yet for poetry to seize the heart, it must ring with the chimes of truth."
