You know better than that. Neal Boortz is a libertarian, not a religious conservative or a Republican, and he has been all over the president on critical issues, including the war, the deficit, gay marriage, immigration, and Terri Schaivo. He frequently laments the infusion of religion into politics, and you have quoted him approvingly on several occasions, which has never been the case with the others. He was there because because he's "right" on taxes and for no other reason.

You are accused often enough of painting with too broad a brush. Don't give your critics easy ammo.

Boortz is indeed a principled libertarian conservative. Hannity is an apparatchik. I still find the fawning invitation to select talk-show hosts a little creepy. Somehow I don't think they were invited to give the president a piece of their mind.
