Nothing but insults:

What would you do if someone called you:
  • A person with a "scrawny chest"
  • Prone to "completely unearned righteousness"
  • Someone who failed in their first marriage
  • "self-deceiving"
  • A "lowdown, yellow-bellied, lily-livered intellectual coward"
  • "quivering"
Would you be open to hearing that person's message? The Los Angeles Times thinks you would.

Re the essay's pro-Limbaugh claims: I've listened to plenty of Rush's radio show and Andrew Klavan's argument is total bullshit.

UPDATE: Klavin speaks out (at Pajamas Media):
Kudos, by the way, to the always fair op-ed page editors at the [Los Angeles] Times. I have written for the Washington Post and the New York Times as well and getting a conservative point of view past their editors without being gutted is virtually impossible.
Klavin's blog is quite interesting. Here he writes about the Pope:
I’m not a Catholic—and I’m pretty sure I’ll never become one—but I’ve read a fair amount of the writings of Pope Benedict XVI and it’s clear to me the man is a theological genius. I find it amazing that the Vatican could have followed a genuine hero like John Paul II with a mighty mind like Benedict’s.
He also considers Ann Coulter "adorable".

CODA: Speaking of right-wing radio, on Sean Hannity today, he opined that Europeans were worried that Obama was going to force socialism on them. The horror!


That oughta work. Insult liberals in your newspaper column so they are inspired to turn on the radio to get insulted some more.

media keeps posting that quote from angela merkel opposing spending more money in attempt to stem the recession, framing it as a shot against obama. giving freepers material to chortle even the socialist germans think obama is too free spending.

media leaves out germany has already deployed 2 stimulus attempts. they don't want to spend more until they see how the original packages have fared.
