    I don't think Hannity has ever made that big of a blunder. The attack on Fluke lasted for three days.

    Hannity's radio show has suffered from some of the same fallout that is clobbering Rush right now.

    But the bottom line is, many who oppose Rush are motivated by his misogyny, and maybe to a lesser extent his tendency to lie, moreso than his politics. I realize it is a challenge to separate all of that out, but the attack on Fluke clearly went overboard in a number of ways, not just the political. Remember his leering suggestion that she should put sex videos online?

      I just take Rush as being a known hack ass, and get the feeling that the moronic low-information public views Hannity as having credibility somehow.

      They both suck but I think Rush has more brains than Hannity.  What he does with them is a different story.
