Hanging out together:

Yesterday Rush Limbaugh was on Sean Hannity's Fox television show. That's a little unusual since they are competitors, but ever since about one year ago conservative commentators (Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, Hugh Hewitt, Sean Hannity, Dennis Prager) have been on each other's shows to a degree that I've not seen in years past. And it's not just Fox-heads fluffing each other.

Is this some sort of cross-promotion because of shrinking audiences? Is it a kind of morale-boosting effort for themselves and their audiences? Is it because they can't book decent guests?

It doesn't seem like a sign of strength.


Cross-(political)-breeding by a bunch of cross white males. Frank Rich refers to some of them as the Republican Pillsbury Doughboys.
