If you’ve ever tried to call into the mega-popular Rush Limbaugh Show you’ve had the pleasure of talking, however briefly, to “Bo Snerdley,” whose real name is James Golden.

In addition to producing the Rush Limbaugh Show and screening calls, he’s also a frequent guest. One day Limbaugh announced, “I have, just this morning, named a new position here on the staff that is the Official Obama Criticizer. The EIB Network now has an Official Obama Criticizer. He is Bo Snerdley.”

In the New York Times, Zev Chafets noted that Snerdley introduced himself as an“African-American-in-good-standing-and-certified-black-enough-to-criticize-Obama guy.”

I had the pleasure of meeting Snerdley over dinner a few months ago. What is the opposite of unassuming? That’s Snerdley. He’s tall, jovial and has a booming and commanding voice – in tone and spirit. Thanks to Rush Limbaugh, I became a conservative. It was an honor to meet the man behind the man behind the golden microphone!

The De Pasquale's Dozen asks political figures and free market-minded writers and entertainers to take a break from politics and talk about their pop culture obsessions.

1. What's your favorite movie line and who would you like to say it to?

The Godfather – Michael confronts his double-dealing, sister-beating, jerk-off of a brother in-law Carlo. Who thinks he has successfully wooed his way into being Michael’s right-hand man – despite his role in the killing of Michael’s brother – Sonny. As he walks through the door – Carlo is on the phone perhaps womanizing. He turns. Sees Michael’s serious demeanor. And hears the words: “Carlo. You have to answer for Santino. Today – we settle all family business.” Pick your Democrat elected official. Start with Harry Reid. “Harry. You have to answer for what you’ve done to this country. Today- we settle all family business…”

2. Tell me about your favorite teacher and how he or she influenced your life.
