    I heard the "Ed Show" is kicking butt in the TV ratings game. It's all about ratings and sponsors.

    There is a lot of truth to that off the cuff statement. It comes down to talent though. Shultz and a few other liberal talkers have excellent ratings and are beating some of the righties in the big markets.

    They do have a problem though. Most liberals are are to busy hunting, fishing, golfing, working, family etc to waste a lot of time listening to them talk. The demographic of the right wing radio junkie is older, retired, and not to active. They have lots of time to listen to the radio and watch all the cable outlets.

The demographic of the right wing radio junkie is older, retired, tax paying productive citzens, and active hunting, fishing, etc. that are tired of listening to the current crop of commie symps trying to buy votes. They understand big words and would rather listen to talk radio than cRap music and can afford cable.
    There, fixed it for ya.

    A quick search shows he can't even beat Joy Behar. That's pretty bad.

    You couldnt be further off on your assessment of the stereotype of either side or your lack of grammatical skills to differentiate between the word "to" and "too"...

    the only thing you got right was that the President does spend a lot of time playing golf

    I don't know Bon....our local contingency bussing to DC for Glen Beck's rally are all retired, smoker's-coughing, too-sick-to-hunt, grumpy old men who saw their retirement packages yanked out from under them this decade.

    Smoker's cough? At least it's not from huffing crack pipes! And, at least they can read and write,


    they probably own guns which they bought legally and they worked and paid into the system. Even if they did have to watch helplessly while the government spoon-fed their tax dollars to leeches who'd rather take hand outs than work And not that I'm any disciple of Glen Beck, never even listened to the man.
    Hmmm, I'd venture to guess that more constructive ideas will come out of Beck's rally than the other one.

    You don't have to be a lefty to be ticked off about "W". I'm one of those retired guys that saw a lifetime of retirement savings yanked out from under my feet under King George, the "Dubya". His minions were asleep at the switch while his friends and allies were creating financial fictions. I'm not about to forget him or send him a valentine. GWB never did anything competent. "Stupid SOB" is too lenient of a term for him.
