  •  Less talent, more fanatical than Rush or Glenn (0+ / 0-)

    Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck both rose through the ranks of radio.  They understand the medium.  Rush started off as a radio deejay using the air name Jeff Christie (as have others).  He is so effective because he is, as he likes to say, an entertainer first.  Yes, his entertainment is based on taking extreme political positions, but it's largely show biz.  He's obviously a serious conservative, but some of his nuttiness is for show, and, to be sure, he's overplayed it.  Beck is also a showman first.  He's nuts, but he plays it up for effect.

    Hannity, on the other hand, doesn't seem to have the same show biz skills.  He may well be just a serious extremist with modest air skills.  Scary.
