Looking at the long picture of American demagogues, like Limbaugh, Hannity, Coulter, O’Reilly and Beck, are they only in it for the money? Does anyone who engages in political demagoguery even believe in what they are saying or is it all for entertainment purposes? Who are the demagogues on the left, or is there only Michael Moore?
Yes. No. Chompsky. Moore is rich and fat, thus making him ineligible for leftist demagoguery. Sure, there are some who want to put Al Gore in that category, but those people are simply ignorant or are just being intentionally obtuse. Olbermann? Please. The man now makes a living mostly through playing clips of Fox News. Maddow? Too new. Although being a woman and a lesbian probably scores her some serious leftist points. If Chomsky isn’t good enough for you, I guess I would have to say the last great hope for demagoguery on the left rests with Flo, the Progressive Insurance lady. Progressive. Get it?
