For the Monday, August 09, 2010, installment of the Rush Limbaugh radio program, listeners got a surprise because the substitute at the microphone for "America's Anchorman" was none other than "the architect," aka Karl Rove.

Cynical pundits might question the possibility for getting unbiased information from a man who is simultaneously functioning as the CEO for the Association of Republican Political Candidates, or whatever it's called, but dittoheads are not as easily mislead.

Radio uses the public airwaves and, since the Republicans believe that the Fairness Doctrine infringed on freedom of speech, they scrapped it a long time ago -- during Ronald Reagan's term in office. It is supposed to be the Republicans who pine for the way things used to be and the Democrats are the ones who fearlessly embrace the future. However, it seems that the Democrats are the ones who want to "return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear" when radio listeners were assured of equal time for partisan issues.

Rove's first caller wanted to give Rove the chance to stress the fact that extending the Bush tax cuts would be of great advantage to the small business owners across these great United States. Rove didn't disappoint.

The second caller fumbled as if he were having a bit of stage fright about reading a script, but he managed to run down the list of particulars of the Hire Act, which gave the unbiased substitute journalist the chance to let listeners know that it was "a scam to stimulate the economic recovery."

Rove gave listeners who just happened to be in the San Francisco Bay area a stealth shout-out by noting that President Obama's chief economic advisor, Christine Romer, had resigned to return to Berkeley and calling the crucible for the Free Speech Movement: "Moscow on the PacificCoast."

If he wanted to rag on Berkeley, why didn't he use the fact that John Yoo is teaching at UCB, as the basis for a comparison to Argentina where some folks from the Third Reich went to wile away their retirement years unmolested by pesky war crimes trials?

The third caller lamented the new national debt numbers.

BP graduated from college in the mid sixties (at the bottom of the class?) He told his draft board that Vietnam could be won without his participation. He is still appologizing for that mistake. He received his fist photo lesson from a future (more...)
