Truth is Insanity

Rush Limbaugh, the right-wing Tasmanian Devil, has been spinning (and I use that term both literally and figuratively, as well as in its newly coined political sense) over Bill Moyer's recent speech before the National Conference for Media Reform. Limbaugh, hurt to the quick by Moyer's incisive criticism of corporate media and the degradation of public broadcasting by right-wing political interests, has been lashing out at Moyers, not on any substantive issues but rather on his mental stability. For Limbaugh, Moyers is not wrong (how could he be when Limbaugh can't think of anything wrong he said), he is just simply "unhinged" and 'literally insane." Limbaugh's Newspeak fears the truth by defining it as insanity.
