Doug, I know we have differences in matters of taste, but this crap is beyond the pale. Can I not convince you in joining me in listening to Limbaugh at least a couple of times a week instead of reading this crap? Or Pugliese could hook you up with some of the really good shit!

This guy is pernicious because he is much more 'respectable' than a buffoon like Rush or a loon like, say, LaRouche. This guy gets good ink in places like _Mother Jones_ and _Utne Reader_. There is enough latent xenophobia and insularity amongst the readers (at least the broadish sample I know) of those pubs, to make this reactionary stuff dangerous to that rather placid(yled)[1] crowd.
