Re: Don't Rush me?

What ever their outlook:

My approach to gas bags is I don't support their sponsors, and I tell them why.
Once I told a call in host, on the air, exactly that and I heard him choke.

Get these folks where it hurts, in the pocket book. Same thing for the discussion programs that are just a group of folks shouting on top of one another.

Not so sure about that - he is an icon in his industry. It's hard to argue with the success he's had. I certainly could be wrong but would suspect that he has one of the largest audiences in all of talk radio. His abiility to combine entertainment with politics - especially 3 of the fundamental conservative principles - tax cuts / personal responsibility / strong national defense - has clearly struck a chord with lots of Americans for a long time.

The dismal failure of Air America only serves to secure his position. I enjoy him.

Funny, that's exactly who was circling the back of my memory whilst reading JG inane puffery.

Wow, I wasn't aware of the guy but now that's entertainment!
Seems he sort of acknowledged being a wack job, whereas Rush thinks he sage for the ages.

I'm trying to decide how "large" this really is... and whether it's a good thing.

If the coonhound had been present, there would have been a question about who was on top of the brain chain. Plus the hobos would probably have to be unconscious.
