People like Joe Pine or Ira Blue were not completely predictable. Limbaugh and Rhodes are.
I think the big talking point for the right wingers is the "Muslim Brotherhood" which has been around since 1928, have we heard them talk about it til now??
Left talkers are talking about backing dictators, torture, and food commodity price speculation, of course FDR did the internment thing and prisoners were tortured at Byron Hot Springs in California and elsewhere.
The Muslim Brotherhood has been talked about for almost 30 years since Anwar Sadat's assination. It's just Hamas and Hezzbollah gets more press coverage than the Brotherhood.
