Another View

Okay, I admit it. I read the Hedgehog Report occasionally. Dave’s right-wing vitriol and eagerness to clip articles in a way that perfectly illustrates his conservative points while avoiding inconvenient facts do tend to annoy me. That said, he sometimes provides good analyses and brings up interesting facts.

Today, for instance, he points out that a politician who tries to be something to everyone can end up being nothing to anyone. And a few days ago he pointed out an alternative viewpoint on one radio talk show host friendly to Gov. Ehrlich who also does paid commercials for the state.
