Am not defending either one of these blowhards. Are you?
I think Weiner should release a line of crotchless underwear.
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
But personally, I don't care about his drug problems. People fall into that for all sorts of reasons, an addiction is a powerful thing and I would never condemn someone for something have so little control over.
I dislike Rush because he presents an absurd interpretation of reality to his audience and, due to confirmation bias, it feeds their pre-determined opinion that all liberals are evil and hateful and want to destroy America, etc. It's the same schtick as the rest of them. It's not so much that these guys lie to you, it's that they present truth to you covered in a ridiculous interpretation that only fits if you already started with a rabidly partisan point of prejudgment.
