I basically have discovered that when I mention someone's more sympathetic voice or face on TV, they get offended by the concept that they enjoy listening to an hour or more of self-promotional ads. Rush, Hannity, Beck, Shultz...it practically doesn't matter. All they really want you to do is buy into their brand and join in the cult of personality. People reference their politics and identities through the personalities more than the politics themselves.
