I am wondering if anyone else has this same thought that I do.  Why do all the so-called liberal and progressive programs i.e.  The Rachel Maddow Show,  The Last Word, The Ed Schultz Show, All in with Chris Hayes and various others feel the compulsion to air clips of Rush Limbaugh almost on a daily basis.  Follow me after the John Boehner tinged squiggly.....

I mean, really if I wanted to hear what that moron had to say, I guess I would tune into his show.  I never understood why in the world a liberal show would just give this guy more air time.  You don't see the Fox News programs giving air time to Rachel, or Lawrence or Ed do you?   Maybe I am wrong, since I don't watch that network, but I don't think they ever air clips from the liberal programs.

I think if you air his clips you give him a certain credibility with viewers.  You are giving this blowhard an air of importance.  Gosh, the liberals want to see what  Rush has to say on the topic of the day as if it is important to know what he thinks...WHO CARES!!

I know the liberal shows want to show his clips in order to ridicule him, but by so doing you are elevating him to an importance that I think is unwarranted.

It seems no matter what the topic is , it is very important to know what Rush has to say on the subject.

To a lesser extent, I have even seen liberal shows air a clip of Glen Beck on some forgotten cable outlet.  He is forgotten , so lets leave it that way, forget him!!

These examples of the dumbing of America have enough exposure.  Surely we can survive a liberal show without hearing what they have to say!  

It has always irritated me, it seemed like a love-hate relationship with these guys.  Anyone feel the same way

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.
