    Right-wing entertainer / commentator Rush Limbaugh said he may change his mind and support President Obama's nominee for the SCOTUS,..."

    Of course. In the talking heads arena where Rush plays, I would call Mike Malloy, Randi Rhodes, & Ed Shultz left wing, for example. Do you deny that Limbaugh is a right winger?

    Both right and left are variable terms. I am sure there are some that would say that Rush is liberal (wonder if Michael Savage thinks that)

    Overall all, Rush is a conservative, but normally in the media we only hear of "right wingers" rarely if ever do we hear "left wingers" Normally the "leftys" are called moderates.

    You mentioned Mike Malloy. Where does he broadcast from. I'm wondering if its the same Mike who used to be on WSB*, Atlanta.

    Also, I used to listen to Ed Schultz when he was in Syracuse (oh, thats a secret - don't let any of the right wingers know I used to listen to him:laugh:)
