good luck--you're gonna need it

Lo and behold! Liberal talk radio begins broadcasting tomorrow. I can't wait to make certain that the show never crosses my radio dial.

Al Franken and a host of garrulous progressives ease onto the airwaves tomorrow morning on America Left, broadcasting live from 6 a.m. to midnight on weekdays via XM Satellite Radio and three AM radio stations in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
Mr. Franken will debut at noon with "The O'Franken Factor," a three-hour daily show airing opposite conservative host Rush Limbaugh, who has 20 million listeners. Mr. Franken once wrote a book titled "Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot" and has named his show as a parody of "The O'Reilly Factor," hosted by Bill O'Reilly of Fox News.
Mr. Franken, who has scuffled with conservatives for years, is primed for a fight.
"My first priority is to get sued by a right-wing jerk in order to generate interest in my new show," Mr. Franken said in a statement earlier this year.

You had better hope someone famous sues your obnoxious, slimy ass, Franken, because you'll never generate ratings on your own ability to entertain. You suck as a comedian, and your books are nothing more than navel-gazing, leftist rants that sound as if they were written by some spoiled kid in a sandbox who let some bully steal his toys. You're about as talented and amusing as a pile of dogshit in my yard.

Talk about a "jerk."

I am interested to watch this endeavor crash and burn, because I don't believe that an audience exists for this type of drivel. I may be wrong, but I don't think so. Mario Cuomo was considered to be the most eloquent spokesman in the left-wing ranks when he tried a radio talk show. He bombed.

So will Franken.
