More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      For the present, Hannity has what appears to be an enduring contract. He will only fade if he loses faithful or does not attract new viewers. Faux will be reluctant to recognize fade and release him because of his present following. His present potential for causing damage is still significant because of his high profile . If he plateaus, and then starts significantly downhill, that is another story, though one that could take a long time to play out.

  •  I didn't know who Ben Shapiro was (7+ / 0-)

    But if he's the guy who is carrying the zombie flag of Breitbart, then he's my guy. Breitbart was a dangerous lunatic who flatly made up stuff that did real damage to good people. The baggers are still certain that he was assassinated because we lefties were so afraid of him.

    You have to be really crazy to keep up a web site of a dead guy. When you are in charge of it and promote it as if it were anything other than a blog of a zombie, you are crazy to the max.

    Shapiro is a pat timer.  Hannity is established, and still hasn't done enough to get him booted like Beck.  He still has power, and a regular audience.

    Votes Hannity.

    to be truly dangerous - not so much by his rhetoric but by having a halftime show and being a proxy for the lunatic fringe.

    he never allows anyone to be a bigger asshole than he is.  It's like in Gattica: he can go deeper into the mire than anyone because he's never worried about the swim back.

    Gotta go with the underdog. This guy proves that the zombie invasion has begun. When Breitbart "died" who could have predicted that his corporate franchise, its own person I guess, wouldn't die with him, but would lumber on and on desperately in search of brains?

    If you hate government, don't run for office in that government.

    Ben Shapiro is putting in the work in the gym to prove his detractors wrong and show them that he can put it in the hoop when it comes to GOP batshit craziness. Hannity has skills, you cant neglect him. He demands the double team in the post...but if you make him beat you from the three point line, he most likely cant.

    I cant tell if its a West End musical or Marxism in action.
