Is it just me
or does it seem that the political and cultural moment for ignorant white male blowhards is drawing to a close?
In retrospect, Rush was certainly the prophet of the movement.
Just as there is no replacement for Trump in Trumpism, his loss will also leave an unfillable void.
Re: Is it just me
If you recall, after Rush threw GHWB under the bus in '92, GWB was carefully crafted into a Ru*****e candidate and was rewarded with 9 years of steadfast support.
The part where the ***** crowed came later, a different part of the story.
GWB was crafted into sort of a hybrid ignorant white male blowhard. The important stuff was dogwhistled and he did manly poses, all the while trying to hold onto a bit of the blue blood gentility.
Shortly thereafter the GOP went all in.
