The following words speak for themselves. So that you can understand my bias, I am a so-called Progressive, and I don’t enjoy Rush Limbaugh and Pat Robertson. Two of my closest friends are conservative Republicans — one worked for Cheney, the other Dole. I believe with every fiber of my being in the power of ideas, an no one person or party has a monopoly on the best ones. Let us present our ideas, have a constructive, respectful argument, and let the best ideas win. The reason I’m close to my friends is because we’re people first — albeit our love of politics and policy is an important part of us — but there is so much more that I like about my Republican friends than their misguided politics! (and vice versa I’m sure). The sewer of hate that follows literally made me feel sick, especially in light of the unyielding pain and suffering that is going on now in Haiti. Glenn and I do our show, in the vein of The Great Guys from Car Talk, because we believe there’s a way for all of us to become more informed and engaged while also having a good laugh — at ourselves, and pretty much everyone else. I’d like nothing more than for political discussion to evolve so much that it puts me out of business. I look forward to that day. Until then, right now, Rush Limbaugh should be fired. — Jeff Kimball
