A comment I left over at Billmon’s blog, after a posting about how Americans are uninformed – or misinformed – about the WMD situation:
I’m surprised by how many of “us” – progressives and moderates – don’t ever listen to Rush or Sean Hannity, which happen to be where a very large fraction of America gets its news. I think it’s important to understand what they are saying. You won’t BELIEVE it if you turn on Rush or Sean, but it’s what the public is hearing, and you’ll see why Bush is so popular. Try it.
I’m serious. It is a very good thing to know what your opponents are saying. It’s also a good way to know what you’re going to be hearing about everywhere else. Also, you’ll understand just how serious the right is, and how hard they are ready to fight.
