air america

Of course, I had to tune in to Air America's webcast stream--y'know, being that there aren't any affiliate stations around my area of Kyoto. It's refreshing to have some liberal talk radio to listen to; I'm a bit worried (from listening to what I have) that things may turn into a Republican bash-fest.

WiFi is bad today (my suspicion is that the rain is doing bad things), so I'm not able to listen to anything reasonably without constant hiccups. Instead, I'm listening to Beastie Boys now, yum!

Steal from the rich, and I'm out robbin' banks
Give it to the poor, and I always give thanks
Because I've got more stories than J.D.'s got Salinger
I hold the title, and you are the challenger

I listen to OFranken every morning, (listening now) I worried it might be a bash too but it's funny and imformative mostly.

The thing is I wonder if one reason limbaugh is so effective though is cause (not to sound like the wine drinking, cheese swilling type that Rush says us Air A listeners are...) angry isloated people, who just listen to him all day without reading and getting more info (not "intellectual types"). So he does sway votes cause those people just like getting energized by being pissed off, and probably wouldn't vote otherwise.

For instance that it isn't just a bash, Franken has a close friend on everyday who is a "Ditto head" as in Rush Ditto Head. And these guys are close friends from high school. But disagree, but respect each other. So it's fun cause he has him on everyday.

Thanks Carol, and you're welcome Tiff.

It's pretty funny listening; although, I still shake my head when I hear bashes of conversatives one after another. It's funny, but starts to seem silly when there's too much of it.

Now what's wrong with repugnican bashing I've been doing it most my life ;)

They've already added two more shows...over two million streams in the first three days

What made limburger so effective was that he made liberals feel like they were in the minority and the right wingers to feel in the majority. Of course the middle of the roaders wanted to be in the majority.

All bluff and bluster but it was all it took for the more sensitive amongst us to sit quietly and hide our intellectuality.

I've heard more than one liberal as they get, pinko scum voice the right wing party line in a mistaken effort to fit in.

Fake voices helped propogate the attitudes that spawned them and gave the right carte blanche to get just a little more fascist.

Air America almost made this loud mouthed old liberal cry with relief....ok fine it did...wanna make something of it?
