I Am Flabbergasted to Learn
That I'm actually older than Mark Levin
I remember in 1976, as a 19-year-old in Pennsylvania working the polls for Reagan against the sitting Republican president, Gerald Ford, I was demeaned for supporting a candidate who was said to be an extremist B-actor who couldn’t win a general election, and opposing a sitting president.
Doesn't Levin seem like some character out of a Dickens novel? A Wackford Squeers, an angry old man who kicks dogs? I haven't listened to his show a lot, but he seems like a throwback to the conservatives who used to rail about how the country was going to hell in a handbasket. These days it's mostly liberals who are "mad as hell and not going to take it anymore!"
And note, that I never talk about Rush or Hugh like this, so it's not just the anti-McCain nonsense. Rush and Hugh seem to enjoy life; Levin seems like someone who wakes up cranky at the sun.
Hilariously, he uses his column to talk about what a temper McCain has. I prefer to think of it as passion; the Senator is certainly Type A and not timid about expressing himself.
