    Until the Republicans are willing to let this go bye-bye on their National platform, they are doomed to lose election after election!

    Wow!!!...an entire thread illustrating the "Gored Ox Syndrome". How appropriate, as we move into '09...the year of the OX.

    Sounds to me like the RINO's we have in far too many of our public offices, are in good standing on this BB as well.

    If it weren't for the 'Limbaughs', 'Becks', and others of their persuasion, who would be talking about conservatism at all??? Certainly not our education system. Certainly not your news room, Mr. Bootay.

    Like 'em or not, when the latest version of the fairness doctrine is involked, you won't have to worry about them being on the air. Since radio is a bastardized medium, run only by bean-counters, they won't have the onions to provide equal time, they will opt for the simplistic way out of just cancelling all controversy, and play their pathetic satellite-fed formats.

    So yes, you will have your way then Franco, to instill all the programming you can find that will be SEP'd in your favorite minority language....you know, ENGLISH.

    Oh, BTW, are you prepared for the 'staff' to unionize? How long did you say you had before retirement? Good luck.

    Bill, my point is that they do the Republican Party more damage than they do good. Why do you suppose McCain wouldn't come within a 100 miles of thier shows? Because what they spew is not Conservatism nor generally accurate. They are trying to define the Republican Party and it is harming the party. The are better voices to represent the party but Rush and Sean have established themseleves as the big boys and broadcast companies are in business to make money. They are PRODUCT and not the real voice of traditional Americans. We carry both of thier shows and I'd drop them both in a heartbeat if corporate would allow me to do so. But, stations won't drop their shows because they know both shows bring decent ratings. Not great ratings but, decent. And, that is true all over the country. Until we get real Conservative voices on the air, these two will define the party and they have no business doing so. You mention Beck and I would not put him in the same catagory as Rush and Sean. I actully think Beck has a better understanding of what is real and he is generally more accurate. Rush and Sean only appeal to the hardcore and turn off anyone interested in exploring what Republicans really have to offer. Rush is also pompus turning new listeres off and Sean is mostly inaccurate. Broadcasters have to find better host or these two will continue to damage Conservatives and Republicans alike.

    Air America is still alive and kickin'. I believe they have reorganized at least once, maybe even more, but have managed to stay on the air. Don't forget, FOX lost hundreds of millions of $ before turning a profit. It was only Murdoch's deep pockets that kept them going. Air America's website lists these affiliates.

    Recently Bill O'Reilly had Glen Beck as a guest on his show and they were discussing Bill Ayers. Bill asked the following question:

    "O'Reilly: So here's my question. I know I made a big deal out of it, I know you talked about it on your radio program, got a lot of calls on it, people were angry. But when I go out on the street and I say, "William Ayers, does that bother you?" Just as many Americans say, "No, I don't care." What is that mentality when they don't care about a guy like this? What does that tell you?"

    Beck responded:

    " Beck: Cakes and circuses and too many dumb people. I mean, we should thin out the herd, you know what I mean?"

    It is striking to me that Beck would demonize Ayers for promoting terrorism but on the other hand he is advocating the elimination of "dumb people". Does he not see the hypocrisy in his position. Violence is violence whether it is terrorism or elimination of a class of people who you don't like.

    These type guys hurt the Republican party

    is not an example of advocating 'violence' and it's pitiful to think an adult (even an ObomaNation supporter) would try to portray it as such. It's obviously a humorous jab at who voted Obama into office. Don't bother telling me how you don't think it's funny as you are obviously not their targeted listener. Is humor now against the PC police, or only allowed for Democrats?

    And as for mattoleriver's list of Air America assets...they are all AM radio stations! Who listens to AM radio? Not anyone I know. Hardly an advertisement of solvency for Air America. I have a lot of junky hoopties lying around my farm,but they all run, does that make me a prosperous car dealer?

    Have you seen the clip. If not I would ask you to view it and then draw your own conclusions. Mine are is that he is not joking, he said it with a wink and a nod to O'Reilly. If you think that saying it is alright to eliminate a class of people because you disagree with them then I feel for you. Even if he was joking and his intent was pure at best he has degenerated to name calling and stereotyping.

    Cotts, actually no, I haven't seen the clip and I rarely listen to O'Reilly. But even your description is that of a joke delivery--wink, wink, nudge nudge. Since I did not see or hear the Beck/O'Reilly discussion, I'm guessing you're waiting to play the race card about the certain group of people. Am I right?

    The use of the phrase "wink and nod" was probably a bad choice.As I said before watching Beck say what hes said sure didn't seem to me to be a joke. Watch the clip.

    What are you talking about? Honestly, thought never crossed my mind. Its absurd.

    I saw the show and it was irony at no one caring about Ayers coupled with an attempt at humor as a backhanded solution.

    I guess cotts135 doesn't get either.

    Hey cotts135, if it makes your left wing sensibilities “feel” good to posit that is what he meant, go ahead.

    Here is the clip so you can see context and manner.
