Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, that crazy guy that sounds like a screaming dwarf, insert any right-wing pundit really, the result will always be the same. Kittens die, and none of us want that on our conscience, right? Right.
I love talk radio. Don't get me wrong, I love my ipod too, but if I'm waiting somewhere and don't have a book with me I feel a need to listen to talk radio but I can no longer stand even for a few minutes the right-wing hosts. Not even in-between a commercial break for something else.
For example, I was on my way to the store the other night and I caught Dr. Laura on the radio. As right wing as they come right? It's just not an overtly political show. So this woman calls in to be "counseled" on her failing 2 year marriage. The woman stays at home and does everything for this man but he still seems upset all the time and they fight over money a lot. Dr. Laura (without asking follow up questions) had the nerve to tell this woman that the problems in her marriage were clearly her fault, to quote, "What hard working man wants to come home to a lunatic shrill of a woman who has the audacity to question him about the way he spends the money he earns." It went on from there but I had to turn it off.
The point? If you like talk radio like I do and perhaps share more liberal viewpoints then I urge my friends here in LA to check out AM1150 KTLK http://www.ktlk.com/main.html. My friends in Detroit can check out AM1310 WDTW http://www.1310wdtw.com/main.html. Line ups include Stephanie Miller, Randi Rhodes, Rachael Maddow and some of the greatest progressive minds out there. On the weekends, personal favorites of mine, Frangela, from the VH1 Best week ever are on the air discussing politics and people. Hilarious.
That is all.
