The Cowardly Lions

The Cowardly Lions

It's good to see my description of Hugh Hewitt as a "Cowardly Lion," is catching on since it's accurate.

Read Lance Mannion's: "A rhetoric of cowardice and vanity"

Ezra Klein says of Mannion:

"Mannion just wrote one of those posts that many -- myself included -- have tried to pen, but lacked the talent to definitively articulate. It's on the psychology of the rightwing fear-mongers, and he gets the causal connection between their conscious projection of inflated terror and their blustering rhetorical bravery just right."
