Assuming Allen West fanboy and Rush Limbaugh-wannabe Mark Levin actually had any marbles to lose before he went on an on-air rant last week may be a bit of a stretch, although it does appear he successfully got that brick through his digestive system.
Who's Mark Levin? In short, some guy.
The longer version -- he's some guy who interviews Rep. Allen West on his right-wing radio program on occasion and last week took almost six minutes of airtime explaining his distaste for New Times and his apparent obsession with this writer.
Here's the post he's referencing, and we'll just toss you straight into the video -- "check it out":
For those who lost count, a friend of the Pulp hooked us up with this mathematical analysis of references:
Matthew Hendley: 10
Broward-Palm Beach New Times (and variants of): 3
Idiots like this: 3
Little creep: 3
Mr. Hendley: 1
You know what's awesome about Levin?
Nothing, but that's not the point.
In a fashion remarkably similar to West's, Levin takes on the classic screw-the-facts, hurl-the-insults diatribe that gets the blind devotees riled up.
Also -- obituaries? What?
Anyway, that's the company West apparently keeps, as if anyone's surprised about that.
