Johnson catches Rush Limbaugh in one of my favourite rhetorical miscues:
Now, look, folks, as I’ve told you countless times, I live in Literalville.
If you tell me something, I take it literally. I believe that you mean it. I don’t dance around edges trying to figure out what you really meant. If you say it, I believe it. I live in Literalville ...
And, you know, when you live in Literalville, life is a lot simpler. It appears to be complex to people that don’t live in Literalville. But I live in Literalville, it’s very simple. You have to be able to accept things.
Why do I care about the facts? I know, it’s a failing of mine. It’s a failing of mine. See, I live in Realville. I’m the mayor of Realville, or Literalville.
