First of all, please don't "skewer [Okiepoli] without understanding where [he's] coming from."
LOL. He's may be a self-admitted Conservative, but as Archie Bunker might say, "It's OK, he's one of the good ones."
He had a question for you, and tried to contact you through me but, strange as it is, for as often as you comment here, I don't seem to have your email address, and couldn't find any contact info in your profile either. (And until know, completely forgot about it.) (Sorry, Okie!)
Anyway... Here's his email:
I looked (briefly) on The Left Hook blog for contact info for classicliberal, but couldn't find it. If you have classicliberal's email, would you forward the following:
I've seen some of your Limbaugh writings and was wondering if you could help me with this (original post to John Paradox on MMfA:)
OT but, since you seem to be a font of classic Limbaugh knowledge:
Way back then, Rush was trying to make a point about media bias, and compared the number of Lexis/Nexis hits on Newt's book deal and Ron Brown's real estate deal.
I remember because he stated the methodology of his search. When he used an unequal number of search terms, I knew he was doing what he always accused the 'liberal' media of doing - skewing the results to support his point. That's when he lost me as a listener.
I tell you this tale simply to ask - do you have a direct quote for what I'm talking about?
Thank you both for your time,
okiepoli (at) gmail.com
And Classic, if you just aren't in the habit of emailing / giving people your email thas cool. You two can feel free to talk through this thread instead. I certainly have no problem with it.
