Writer wrong about the right

The Other Voices, “Being realistic rather than moralistic,” published Sept. 29, offers some great laughs: “People who want to educate themselves politically should take a look at the political cartoons and letters to the editor.” Undoubtedly, the writer gets his financial advice from “Dilbert” and his domestic counseling from “Annie’s Mailbox.”

The political cartoons in The Union are, typically, atrociously anti-Bush and anti-Republican. The letters include writers who don’t have a clue about real life. We also get Arianna Huffington, who succeeds Molly Ivans in trashing Bush’s administration.

The writer accuses Mike Reagan, Tom Sullivan and Rush Limbaugh of (profitably) spewing hate. Why that claim? Because Reagan is right but carries the Reagan name; Smith is right and delivers facts; Limbaugh is right (19 years of proven accuracy) and fights the liberals with their own words and deeds in his conservative drumbeat. He is right when he says he is equal time, to counter most other major media who lean left. Rush is always one of the country’s most positive spokesmen, supporting our troops and their mission.

Match that against the lies and negative claims coming from Ted Kennedy, Harry Reid, Tom Harkin, Dick Durbin, et al.
