We’re used to Bill Cunningham’s over the top, Rush Limbaugh style of talk here in Cincinnati on his talk-radio show on WLW each day. But outsiders aren’t. Especially if those outsiders are about to get the Republican nomination for the presidency.
My husband, Mister Political Aficionado, has known Bill Cunningham for years. He shakes his head and laughs because he knows Bill’s attitude and style. Buck laughs because he knows nobody can really prevent Bill from saying whatever it is that he wants to say.
This, we figure, is the first amendment playing itself out in one of its many manifestations. Yes, Bill should have thought before he spoke. McCain took a small hit that he didn’t have to take, shouldn’t have had to take.
Democracy is messy, isn’t it?
