While driving home from Portland today I listened to the only station that was actively reporting on today's election results. It took awhile to realize that this was right-wing radio because for a time the reporting was just news. But then she - the show's host - started in on her naive right-wing view of the world. Aside from the fact that many of her alleged facts were incorrect or misleading, the most striking comment made was how, during the debates so far, of which we've had quite a few, no one asked the important questions. At first I was trying to think of what she meant: The war... the economy... SS... health care... the war on terror... the border...? What have they not addressed? Finally she spilled the beans: They have not asked one question about banning gay marriages!!! Of late there is a fair amount of evidence that the Rush Limbaugh’s of the world will soon be tossed out with the rest of the garbage; or at least that his big mouth won't carry weight any more. Most notably, when Limbaugh claims that a McCain victory means the death of the Republican Party, and when Ann Coulter says that she would vote for Clinton before McCain, and considering that McCain is about to win the nomination, I wish a not so fond adieu to the zealots, nuts, and control freaks who replaced conservatism with fundamentalism, bigotry, and hypocrisy.
