It comes, of course, from Jonah Goldberg. I was less than satisfied with some of the Republican and Conservative comments that Republicans should disassociate themselves from Rush, because it seemed to me they were suggesting that we focus on appealing to the center and not worry about alienating the base in the process. Sorry, but alienating the base is something of serious concern. I may not be one of those people, and in fact I find most of them to be small minded and there ideas not constructive, but people who want to leave the Republican party do exist. If you disagree with things some Republicans are saying, don’t throw a hissy fit and leave or something like that, just say, calmly, where it is that you disagree, why, and try your best to get them to agree with you. Save the confrontational attitude for the Liberals. Anyway, I like the idea of bringing back Firing Line, but who would host it? More to the point, why should PBS exist in the first place? Wouldn’t it be better to not subsidize any opinions? After all, you could never be fair to all of them. And nobody except nerds and Commies watch PBS ;).
