I listened to that tripe for the first time on Sunday, when I
took assumed possession of my mama's car. I figured out how to operate the radio and the first station I found was Air America. I listened to it for about an hour as I drove home.
The show I heard featured Bobby Kennedy, Junior, and some other dipstick whose name I don't recall. They lied like flea-bitten dogs with almost everything they said. Did you know that CNN is a tool of the right-wing media? Of COURSE it is! "Everybody knows..."
Whenever you hear a Democrat say "Everybody knows," you can automatically assume that the asswipe is telling you a lie. If everybody knew, the asswipe wouldn't have to raise the issue in the first place. It's like these people took a page out of the Josef Goerbels handbook, which says keep telling a lie long enough and people start to believe it.
That's no way for a political party to survive.
We have a lot of drooling fools in this country, but I don't believe that they are the majority. If that is the kind of people the Democrats are aiming for now with Air America, they are wasting their time and money. They already HAVE the drooling fools voting for them.
But that shit they're pitching on the radio isn't going to convince many people to change sides and join the drooling fools. You can like Rush Limbaugh or not, but he at least treats his audience as adults and runs a tight ship.
Air America is pathetic. If it were a beloved dog, I would have it put to sleep.
You know something is wrong at AAR when it's main sponsor is a vacuum cleaner salesman. They just oppose ANYTHING that the Republicans are "for". GWB should have come out AGAINST reform for S.S., then Al Franken would be FOR it. Al's bitch-sidekick has the laugh from hell, and Randi Rhodes is certifiable.
An hour? HTF did you do that? I catch it in 5-10 minutes bits. The hatred and vile overwhelm me quickly. But an hour, wow.
I tried to listen to a little of Al Franken today - I couldn't stand to listen for long. There was not much in the way of hatred in this segment - it was just awful from a broadcasting standpoint. Slow, bad levels, talent turning away from the mic, a total lack of passion. They reminded me of a bored employee just making his 8-hours.
I gave that cunt Randi Rhodes a shot, for about 10 minutes. I was all conspiracy this, Halliburton that, big oil,blah blah blah....
Ripped straight from the pages of Democratic Underground.
No wonder Air America is going down faster than a $5 whore during Fleet Week.
Whenever you hear _anybody_ say "Everybody knows," you can automatically assume that your are hearing absolute bullshit. Listening to Rush Limbaugh usually causes me the same discomfort that you encountered listening to AAR. I cannot opine as to AAR since I've never bothered to listen.
Franken and Limbaugh tell their target audience what they want to hear. Listening to either one is the mental equivalent of masturbation - it feels good and it doesn't require any change. Of course, if you are a member of the other commentator's target audience (Franken listening to Limbaugh), then listening is the equivalent of passing a kidneystone - really unpleasant.
Air America is totally useless. The only reason I support it staying on the air is the keep the Fairness Doctrine from returning. You just know that as soon as AAR implodes, the lefties are going to start pushing for the return of the Fairness Doctrine and then we're all in a lot of trouble!
BTW - Rob, you're a better man than me. I would have pulled the radio out of the dash and chucked it out the window if I had to listen to that for an hour.
That should be "to keep the Fairness Doctrine from returning."
Fingers faster than the eyes there.
Should the fairness doctrine come back I'd like to aim it at NPR. The only good thing about Air America is that it's pissing away George Soros' money and it's not being used elsewhere to more effect.
Michael Savage is one of the best radio personalities out there, hates the liberals just as passionately as any of us, but doesn't have his head crammed up the present-day GOP's ass, either.
JG22 and STINKERR,
You both have good points. It's always good to find a way to throw someone like Soro's money into the trashcan. He deserves it. I think he's still pissed about that bad oil deal when he was partnered with GWB. Sounds like someone's a bad loser.
As for Savage, I haven't heard a whole lot of his program but what I've heard, and read, I like. It's almost like he represents the rest of us, the ones who have cogent thought and don't just blindly follow what we hear. Like many radio hosts, I don't agree with him always but I agree with him a lot of the time. If they (radio talk show hosts) cause us to to think, they're doing their job. That and making us listen to the commercials between bits! :-)
As a follow-up, yeah, Soros and GWB were partners once for those who don't do their homework. As for NPR, can someone explain why this isn't the epitome of the Fairness Doctrine at work? I can't listen to more than 5 minutes of NPR nor AAR without tossing several choice verbage at the dash and turning the station.
I think the Godfather said it best today when he said than whenever a lib host/talker comes to town, a conservative goes to a movie. On the other side, whenever a conservative host/talker comes to town, the libs converge so they can reinforce their "pissed-off-edness" if that's a word!
Also disbelieve the asshats that begin a sentence about global swarming with:
"almost all scientists agree that"......
egg stealing, rabid vermin, all.
"We have a lot of drooling fools in this country, but I don't believe that they are the majority. If that is the kind of people the Democrats are aiming for now with Air America, they are wasting their time and money. They already HAVE the drooling fools voting for them."
Rob - at least 52% of American voters could be described this way, depending on your point of view. These people reelected a President who obviously lied to start a war against a country for the sake of profit. This man and his associates are at this moment attempting to dismantle Social Security. The list goes on and on.
So, please, try looking at the WHOLE picture once in a while.
James, are you suggesting that Al Gore or John Kerry would have been better? I don't think so.
Anyone who believes that they want to dismantle SS better go back and do more homework. If I had been able to invest 2% of my money on my own, I would be retired and a millionaire today. I hope my son gets to invest his own. Afraid too many people do not know how to invest - hell, a simple moneymarket fund would put you even farther ahead!
