Early in May, Wendy Gittleson (The Big Sauce) provided an interesting counterpoint to this common argument: the case of Rush Limbaugh. Gittleson noted that calls for those of us on the left to ignore Limbaugh never made much sense because there is almost no audience overlap between us and Limbaugh. She certainly has a point here. Limbaugh's audience would not know whether we were ignoring him or rebutting him because they would not be paying attention to us.
