The only thing the Republican Party has going for it is the Right-Wing Talk Radio Propaganda Noise Machine -- Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, ad nauseum, et al -- and its listening audience of gullible, susceptible lemmings. Today's Right-Wing Talk Radio audience is just like the Japanese kamikaze pilots of World War II who were brain-washed by Japanese propaganda into crashing their planes into the sides of American battle ships and killing themselves. Rush Limbaugh, et al, now enjoy a modern-day audience of American kamikaze suiciders who currently commit political hari kari and self-immolation in response to their daily dose of Right-Wing radio propaganda.
What benefit did the Japanese World War II pilots achieve for themselves and their families by crashing their planes into the sides of American battle ships? And, what benefit is today's American Right-Wing kamikaze audience achieving by falling for the lies of Rush Limbaugh and other Right-Wing propagandists, and voting against their own economic interests -- against unions, against higher minimum wages, against Social Security, against expanded health care, against anything that could possibly improve their lives, and for more tax breaks and unregulated plunder for the rich?
