It’s Nero on Line 1, Hugh

IT’S NERO ON LINE 1, HUGH….Earnest commentators around the country have been urging the press to focus on substance tonight instead of obsessing over facial tics, body language, hairstyles, and other trivia. In the face of this tsunami of conventional wisdom, I’m glad to see that one man has the guts to call a spade a spade and demand that the media pay more attention to makeup and juvenile theme songs.

A grateful nation salutes you, Hugh Hewitt.
