Conservative critics like to carp about the New York Times and National Public Radio being woefully out of touch with, oh, about half the country. Events over the weekend demonstrate why those criticisms, while often tedious, continue to have merit.

Consider: In his current quest to out-Trump Trump, Ted Cruz has begun referring to illegal immigrants as "undocumented Democrats." This is hardly an original epithet; the phrase has been a staple of the Rush Limbaugh program for at least five years. (The joke migrated to a Jay Leno monologue in 2013 as well.) If there's any story here, it's that Cruz is making a strategic decision to appeal to dittoheads by lifting Rush's language.

Obama: 'I Don't Know What's in Rush Limbaugh's Heart'

2:14 PM, Mar 06, 2012

At the presidential press conference this afternoon, Barack Obama was asked to weigh in radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh's apology to law school student Sandra Fluke. "Do you believe Rush Limbaugh's apology to the Georgetown student is sufficient and heartfelt? Do you agree with the number of sponsors who agreed to stop supporting his show? Is there a double standard on this issue? Liberal commentators have made similarly provocative and distasteful statements and there hasn't been the same out rage."
