I love the liberal’s ability to attack issues head-on with incisive argument. (That was sarcasm.) The conversation below started when I mentioned a product I’d heard about on the radio.
Liberal: Don’t tell me — you were listening to talk radio?!
Liberal: I can’t believe you were listening to talk radio. [With real horror:] Don’t tell me you were listening to Rush Limbaugh.
Me: I don’t know if I was when I heard the commercial, but I like Rush. He’s funny.
Liberal: Oh, my God. There’s something wrong with you. I think you’ve become demented. You need help. [This was not said as a joke.]
Me: As I said, Rush is really funny. Have you ever listened to Rush?
Liberal: Of course I have.
Liberal: [Mimicking me:] “When?” What is this? Some type of interrogation? You want me to say I listened to Rush Limbaugh on May 27, 2007 at 9 a.m.?
Me: No. I was just wondering generally. Did you listen to him in 1987? 1997? 2007?
Liberal: I don’t know when I listened to him.
Me: Did you actually listen to him on his show, or did you listen to a sound bite when he was news on another show, such as NPR or the TV?
Liberal: This conversation is officially over.
