FREEPER COMMENTS REQUESTED: Is it just me, or is Mary Matalin way off base today with her entire theme for the show (guest hosting for Rush). Now I normally like her work tremendously, but her idea that we should search for "virtue" in government and for "virtuous people" to be in government seems extremely naive.
The only virtue in government is its limit. We will never get a government full of virtuous people. By definition, government is power and virtuous people are not drawn to that. Our Founders knew that. This is why they insisted on LIMITED government. Wake up Mary!
I can't quite explain it, but Rush almost seems to be getting board with the show. Has he made it through an entire month without having to day time off? Maybe he has, but it just doesn't seem like it.
I guess this is why I'm Levin is becoming my “go to” show the past few months. Sad.
I gave her five minutes of my time that I’ll never get back.
When she said was having one of the most virtuous people in Washington as a guest...ED ROLLINS??????
I threw up a little and shut off my radio.
I just Tweeted Rush, someone must have twisted his arm really hard!
A caller is fawning over her for sending him a thank you note in 1992. And she’s slobbering over Krispie Kreme Christie. Now she is predicting that Mittens will win by 7%.
Is she on drugs or is this a bad SNL skit?
Oh, I get it. It’s one of Rush’s parodies.
Rush ALWAYS did have a soft spot for ALL of the Bushies!
The callers don’t even sound legit.
The game must go on for Mary and James. She is really boring. What happened to Hedgecock? He was the best sub.
I agree. I like Mary, but “virtuous people” in government?
Yikes.. Gimme a break. Government only attracts the scum of the earth. It’s why Democrats love it so much.
It’s why government is their god.
Recognized the voice and immediately turned it off. Life’s too short to listen to RINO drivel for three hours.
Or Walter Williams. Mark Belling is alright but still not in the same league with Stein or Williams. The others I just turn off.
LOL, Just seeing this heads-up tells me not to listen in.
I remember the Rush of 15 years ago when he was growing his listenership and he much more frequently showed up for work and showed respect for his audience.
Whose next to host ? Ex Sen Alan Simpson?
My guess is that Rush’s contract says he has to take a certain amount of time off.
His voice has become more and more hoarse. If his voice is to last he has to take time off.
Intelligence without virtue is Bill Clinton.
Intelligence with virtue was Ronaldus Magnus.
Neither intelligence nor virtue is Odumbo.
She’s a moron. I’m switching to Mark Levin Rewinds. I sent a note to Rush, not that he’ll ever get/read it, that today’s show is c-r-a-p.
Of the current crop, Mark Belling is my favrite. Mark Styne is a wet blanket...everything is doom and gloom. Too negative for me.
I’m in the minority here, obviously, but I’m enjoying the show.
Yeah, and I wonder if asked, would she say that Obama, Reid, Pelosi, et al. of their ilk are “virtuous?” My bet is that she would. Sheesh! The more I think about it, she is a naive nitwit! And Boring to Boot!
LOLOL! Well put, v! Best laugh in days.
