Shorter actual Andrew Klavan:

The mainstream media (a.k.a. the Matrix) don't want you to listen to Limbaugh because they're afraid he'll wake you up and set you free of their worldview. You don't want to listen to him because you're afraid of the same thing.
Limbaugh is an ineffective spokesman for the Republicans because he makes no effort to persuade; he simply assumes that what he says is so self-evidently true that anyone listening will be persuaded. As Klavan illustrates, that's how Republicans in general feel about their ideology--and that feeling stands in the way of any serious attempt to expand the party.
