Andrew Sullivan: Fox News And “Nutcases” Like Beck, Limbaugh Are “Controlling” GOP

Sullivan: The Republican Party is Fox News

Sullivan: "I’m tired of this notion, I have to say, that someone like Beck and Limbaugh can be excused because they are entertainers. As if that is an excuse for saying, substantively that they’re saying, and for controlling the Republican party.

Look, who in the Republican party have actually pushed back against Beck or Limbaugh or these other nutcases? That’s the truth, and because there’s no resistance in the Republican party, the Republican Party is Fox News. That’s the head of the Republican party.
