I conducted a little experiment last night. First, I turned on Laura Ingrahm's show. She poked fun at Peter Yarrow's singing at the "Million" Mom March. She talked about the prison abuse. And of course, Nick Berg's beheading. Oh, and quite often she made me laugh out loud.
Then, I flipped over to Air America. Garrafolo et al did not even mention Nick Berg. Instead, most of their conversation was about how inarticulate Bush is, and how he needs to go. And, of course, they didn't make me laugh once.
They're just getting desperate, as apparently, they aren't actually getting paid on time anymore. Despite all the "help others" rhetoric, they're not too fond of not "getting theirs".
They won't go out with a whimper, either. They'll go out with a shrill whistle in one last focused attempt to get your attention, like a boiling teapot. Iieeeeeeeeeee!
Strat - Heh. Works for me :-)
Treason: Voting for George Bush this November, thus sending more poor innocent Americans off to die while the rich stay back home and enjoy their tax breaks. Also see "destroying our environment" (won't be much of a country left to commit treason against soon though, I suppose), "outsourcing jobs," "trampling on civil rights."
Air America is the only place on the radio we can get even close to the truth. Right wing hate radio has taken over AM radio. Thank God (I am a Christian) for XM radio. Raising voices against this misdirected war is right and just. We diverted from the war on terror to vindcate the father of "W" This is grounds for impeachment.
It's quite clear that most people commenting on this site have never experienced life behind the iron curtin and will never be thankful for the freedoms they have. In case you forgot, it was the Dem's who were promoting segrigation and racial seperation in the past. With our morals and culture in the toilet, guess who's hand is on the handle? This is not the party of Kennedy who was the first to introduce tax cuts to fix the economy. DA
I'm hoping that all the hate-filled remarks that the Dems have been spewing out are being cataloged, and then played on a series of political ads for the mid-term elections. That should turn off lots of swing voters.
