The Daily Beast: Ted Cruz Among Friends in the Talk Radio World

"Demagogues like Rush and Mark Levin aren’t worried about trivial matters like governance. Their job is to fuel a galvanizing blend of fear and outrage among listeners. They aren’t even that interested in getting ideological compadres elected to office. After all, rage-mongering bomb-throwers thrive best when the oh-so-loathsome enemy is in power
Unsurprisingly, the junior senator from Texas is manna to talk radio warriors."
