Why Rush Likes Fred, II

The other week, I speculated that one of the reasons Rush Limbaugh likes Fred Thompson is because they have similar styles

But I think there's another reason, too.  Rush hates candidates who suck up to the "drive-by" media.  Case in point:  John McCain and Mike Huckabee are both popular with the media, and I don't think that sits well with Rush, who often notes that Republican politicians often become more liberal in order to win the media's approval.

Unlike McCain and Huckabee, during yesterday's GOP debate, Fred Thompson was the lone candidate willing to put a drive-by-media moderator in her place. 

How much do you want to bet Rush talks about this today?
