None of these conservatives can hold a candle to any peer reviewed academic anywhere whether "conservative," or "liberal." A free exchange of
ideas does not take place in the midst of emotional bombast. The spectrum of serious discussions and research is observational, eventuating in
control. You do not effectuate control through dimwitted propaganda, that is merely a distraction.
What you have here is jingoism, whose banner "ignorance is strength," proves an extension of government and its information apparatus, has a certain
science fiction approach. But it abandoned the idea of Jetson cars when it sponsores such distractions.
I speak as a Republican, and a conservative who participates. People such as Limbaugh and Coulter, are nothing more than useful idiots in the scheme
of things. Unfortunately some of their less than useful commentaries detract from the sober communion that constitutes actual good government. Sadly
their appeal while popular and dare I say within a sphere of the "knee jerk," variety does little service to clear thinking.
Should I need say it again, not much of Limbaugh and others, currently has intellectual appeal to an IQ much above room temperature. They are the junk
food of conservatives, and for that matter anyone having political power. Now their IQ factor rises substantially when Democrats are in power,
but you can just go back to sleep when they think, that they themselves are in power.
