Dear (?) Rush......

RE: Rush Limbaugh calls on conservatives to take back nation
[CNN headline, March 1, 2009]


Dear Rush,

1. It doesn’t belong to you. You can't "take back" something that never belonged to you in the first place.

2. Conservatives have already done their best at screwing it up over the past three decades. Recess is over.

3. Rush, why don't you find a new line of work? Clearly your current one isn't working out so well. (see election results, 2008) There is a limited market for witty but vaccuous and sometimes toxic commentary, you know.

If the unexamined life is not worth living, surely an unexamined belief system, be it religious or political, is not worth holding.

Most things of value do not lend themselves to production in sound bytes.
