"[Geoffrey] Nunberg, best known as a commentator for National Public Radio's Fresh Air, has a lot to say about how conservatives--with help from the media--have dominated debate by twisting political language to their advantage and using cultural caricatures to turn opponents into effete 'elites' out of touch with core American 'values.'
