There are three prime right wing hate talk radio show hosts on the main station in the DC area. They are Limbaugh, Hannity and Mark Levin. it was interesting last evening to hear Levin spewing his venom usually reserved for Obama, liberals, statists and Marxists now being spewed against the Republican more sane establishment politicians and Pundits.
Levin’s hate and anger was way beyond normal control because it looks like the surrender on the debt limit and shutting down the government by Republicans has clearly arrived. Susan Collins has replaced Cruz as the Republican to follow in the Senate. Paul Ryan leads in the House with no talk about defunding Obama Care.
Levin was lamenting the next Ronald Reagan, by the name Ted Cruz has been shafted by McCain, MCConnell, Boehner, Rove, Fox News hosts, Haley Barbour, Krauthammer etc etc. and how it’s time for his Tea Party masses to cut the Republican Party off at the knees.
Levin has had it.
I believe Levin will lead some kind of radio driven insurrection againt Republican establishment leaders with Cruz as his standard bearer.
Levin is awestruck by Cruz. Levin is on the air three hours a day literally losing his mind for being on the losing side with Cruz in the GOP civil war.
With any luck Cruz will not only succeed at taking the Tea Party and GOP down; he will take right wing hate talk radio down too.
I don’t mean right wing anti-government hate talk radio will go away. It will no longer have mainstream Republicans paying homage and seeking approval from these crazy, annoying and unreasonable radio hosts if the Tea Party secedes from the GOP union.
The GOP will go down but never be fully out once the Tea Party scourge is cast aside.
I think Levin crossed a line last night because of his infatuation with Cruz. In the coming weeks it will be interesting to listen to where Rush, Hannity and the ditto-heads go.
If Cruz intends to venture into hate talk radio - he’ll get there as that form of
entertainment is on the decline as far as big money goes.
It will represent a Cruz led non-governing bitchy grumpy anti-government mostly white male movement that is best at throwing stones. They will amuse themselves until their arms fall off I suppose.
The extremist right will be disarmed we can hope.
