    the use of the talk radio megaphone by the think tanks and the roves to keep the GOP in line, purge moderates, and elect sycophant loons is the single most important factor in not only the lurch to the loony right in the GOP but the perception of a lurch to the right in the general pop.

    they did it with coordinated repetition to 50 mil a week and it worked because dems and the left ignored it, and still do. the loony tea party/talk radio minority is a fluid radio controlled constituency for any occasion and along with secondary apathetic voters and an approving MSM they've been able to wreak havoc on democracy.

    with that coordinated blowharding they have been able to create their own conventional wisdom and alternative reality and it's taking the party off the deep end. unfortunately, because the dems and the left refuse to recognize talk radio's role, the rest of the country is suffering too.

    This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.
