I don't have much use for Rush Limbaugh.
There. It's out in the open.
I listen to the program on occasion, but I find his brand of political discourse to be distasteful: more time is spent trashing supposed enemies on the left than discussing ways in which Americans of all philosophical persuasions can better coexist.
Admittedly, I find shout radio of all political bents to be annoying, and even if I disagree with the topics being discussed on NPR, at least the conversations are generally thoughtful and focused on issues rather than personal attacks.
That being said, I think the recent vandalism of a Rush Limbaugh billboard to be an ill-conceived act that will not persuade other people of the justness of any cause.
Sure, vandalism is a method of expressing one's political statement in a manner that is difficult to ignore, but I think the gut reaction of most people is that such tactics are the province of the impulsive. More minds would be swayed by a well-written article, or an inspiring speech, than by a group of thugs with cans of paint.
To the defacers of Limbaugh's billboard: given your obvious political passion, why not start a small newspaper, or create a politically-chrged website, or get a radio gig on a low-power FM station? As a good friend used to say: "You catch more flies with honey than a RPG-29 tube-style rocket launcher."
All right, I made up that last bit, but you get the point, right?
