Left/right of reasonable[edit]

What does the section "Left/right of reasonable" refer to? Are they all "unreasonably" leftwing or rightwing? If so, what is meant by "reasonable?" Blue Talk 05:20, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

I initially had an idea that it was parodies of pundits until I saw several names who I knew were not parodies of media, such as the Rachael Maddow. So far, it just seems to mean "pundits we agree with a reasonable amount of time and two parodies of pundits and excesses of newscasters". Crow7878 (talk) 00:14, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

What exactly does it mean to be a "wingnut in waiting"?[edit]

And how would Bill Kristol be 'dubious', exactly? Rabbitxhampster (talk) 00:09, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Judging from the list, less popular, and occasionally reasonable, but those are just WAGs. Тytalk 00:17, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
Michael Savage and Hal Turner don't really have a reputation for being of the occasionally reasonable sort. Although they are less popular. They're actually considered some of the craziest of the wingnuts. Rabbitxhampster (talk) 00:25, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
As in "in waiting" is less popular, while "dubious" is occasioanally reasonable. Тytalk 00:36, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

John Oliver should undoubtedly be either "angry" or "wingnut"[edit]

Question[edit]

The term is derived from Sanskrit - is this an example of cultural appropriation? Anna Livia (talk) 19:27, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
