LIBERALS ARE NO FUN

Is the title of a Frank Rich essay trying to discern why it is that there have been no leftists with success comparable to Rush Limbaugh or Bill O’Reilly. He dispells all the myths–liberals aren’t funny, mean, outraged, etc. enough–but, alas, can not answer the question.

Update (1113 7/21): Jeff Jarvis has a great take on this one: “Proving his very own point that liberals are no fun, Frank Rich writes a story about liberals that is itself no fun.”
