Hell Freezes Over

No, I'm not talking about The Eagles. But seriously, hell must have frozen over yesterday! Glenn Beck, the hate talker who was too extreme for Faux News, yesterday admitted that not only was he wrong about the US invasion of Iraq but, "Liberals, you were right!" Seriously! If you need to hear it right from the horses mouth, I  don't blame you. Just hit play: There was more. Of course, Beck was wrong about more than he got right in this clip... But there was more to enjoy: From the beginning, most people on the left were against going into [...]

Whose Airwaves? (04/21/2014)

Radio is a sound salvationRadio is cleaning up the nationThey say you better listen to the voice of reasonBut they don't give you any choice'cause they think that it's treason.So you had better do as you are told.You better listen to the radio.I wanna bite the hand that feeds me.I wanna bite that hand so badly.I want to make them wish they'd never seen me.Some of my friends sit around every eveningand they worry about the times aheadBut everybody else is overwhelmed by indifferenceand the promise of an early bedYou either shut up or get cut up;they don't wanna hear [...]

Get Away!

I never thought I'd quote Glenn Beck, but there's a first time for everything. The moron of mid-morning radio (and now the interwebs too) actually said something I can agree with.  Well, OK, it was only a fraction of the entire quote in which he ragged on Sen. Marco Rubio for supporting immigration reform and accused him of being a (gasp!) progressive Republican.  As a Floridian, I can promise you that there is nothing progressive about Mr. Rubio.  Anyway,  Glenny said "Get away! Get away!  Otherwise, brother, we’re going to have to send you away.” The rest of it was [...]

Another One Bites The Dust

Actually, I was planning to use that headline to wrap up my broadcast week... but I guess it also applies to the latest dictator to die.  I'm not sure at whose hands he died, but Gadaffy (or however it is spelled) is dead. It's quite interesting that there's video of the fallen madman after he was captured, bloodied but still obviously very much alive.  Will we ever know exactly what happened? Probably not.  Should we care?  Not really. After all... we've got troubles right here in River City my friend. ... with a capital T that rhymes with [...]

Hey Halperin, Who’s the Dick Now?

I knew Mark Halperin was a right wing shill years ago.  I used to host a morning show at then-progressive talk WINZ in Miami (before they changed formats to become the 4th sports talk station in South Florida).   It was still during the 2008 primaries that Halperin wrote a book called "The Undecided Voter's Guide to the Next President".  He was booked on my show, and I quickly noticed his slant to the right, even when he attempted to portray himself as an objective journalist. I've excerpted part of the interview for you here, so you can hear what I [...]

Opposite World

There's a fairly large portion of the population who believe things that make absolutely no sense in the real world. They buy the bullshit from the hucksters and con-men and opportunists and religious zealots who tell them that health care as a basic human right is a bad thing, and that cutting taxes for the richest of the rich - while increasing the burden on the working class and the unemployed - is the right thing to do. It's Opposite World. Where up is down, bad is good, and things that are just plain wrong are right! It's populated by [...]

“Open your mouth lad, for every voice counts!”

...said the Mayor of Whoville to the shirker named JoJo who, instead of speaking out just played with his yo-yo.  But when he did lend his voice, that's all it took. The whole world was saved by the smallest voice of all. Horton Hears a Who is one of my all time favorite books.  When I awoke this morning and saw that today is Dr. Seuss' birthday, I thought it was time to pull out that book again, as the lesson needs to be learned by everyone who isn't making their voices heard.  I hope you'll listen to today's show, [...]

Beck to Mika “Fuck You!”?

Obviously, there are more important things going on in the world today, but this one jumped out at me like a maniacal asshole on a Fake News channel claiming the sky is falling. (Oh right, that's what it is...) As she does every Tuesday morning, Gotta Laff of The Political Carnival joins me to talk about some of the stories we might have otherwise missed in the week gone by.  So, this morning, we were listening to Glenn Beck's inane ranting about Egypt, and his sexist dissing of Mike Brzezinksi.  (I've been know to diss Mika too, but it's the [...]

Awesomeness and Laffs

How do you do a radio show when you're feeling flu-ish? Invite the Awesome Bob Cesca and Gotta Laff to be your guests!  OK, Laffy was already scheduled (she's on with me every Tuesday morning), but Bob Cesca is certainly coming to the rescue. For readers not in the know, Bob Cesca's Awesome Blog! Go! is here, and you also read him on Huffington Post.  He's no stranger to radio either; he and Elvis Dingeldein host a weekly podcast too.  We'll talk about whatever comes up, though I'm sure we'll hit on the fact that Richard Shelby is blocking the [...]

The Evil Bar Reaches New Highs (Lows)

We're just three weeks and a day away from election day.  I know, midterms don't excite the masses, and the Dems aren't exciting the base.  But the old adage of voting for the lesser of two evils should be on everyone's lips today. I'm in the process of moving in with my boyfriend who lives in Florida's 22nd Congressional District.  This place drives home the meaning of that statement.  I'm no fan of Ron Klein's... but not for the reasons the Republicans are telling me not to vote for him.  Klein is just too damned conservative for me.  However, one [...]
