Creative thinking is not conducive to the mindless following of the extremists on the left that dominate commercial entertainment and politics.
That explains why Colbert and Stewart are such bland, enervating, puppets of ennui when promoting the company line, while Fox News and Limbaugh are so subtle and clever in their creative ability to subtly make their points with such concepts as irony, satire, humor, and entertainment value. You know, communication more suited to a thinking person than an insipid, voracious sponge waiting breathlessly for any suggestion of agreement with their own, personal concepts of how unfair society and government are while vociferously denying the vary concept of fairness. I think I'm starting to get it.
Limbaugh is not an artist nor claims to be. So why would I bother with this? I already told that truly creative artists come from across the spectrum.
I even said there are thinking liberals. They just aren't in the political leadership or the radical left.

So are you saying there are not conservative that are creative artists?
My wife is an artist with a bachelor's of fine arts and all of that. I'm not unfamiliar. When I hung around her fellow artists in college, I kept my mouth shut around the nutjobs so my wife would not be harassed by the intolerant nutjobs. If you are trying to make a living, there is no value in letting your political philosophy be known.

And there is a whole genre of music where being conservative is not a threat to your career and shockingly there are a lot openly conservative country musicians.
Open you mind and the conservatives will lead you to the promised land.
But for now, school's out.
