Media Rare

“…every time one of my concrete-pouring pals tells me the country is headed to hell in a hand basket thanks to drug-addled media lesbians soft on crime, I am tempted to reply, in my best third-grade-recess voice, ‘I know you are, but what is Rush?’ There are the standard targets, but I swear to your, the scariest thing I heard on my car radio all year aired on a station that had recently switched to a liberal talk format and was running promotional liners one of which featured a female caller saying, ‘I used to listen to NPR, but now I listen to Air America in the morning, because they make me laugh.’ I was pouring hot coffee in my lap at the time, and may have misheard.”
