Talk Radio

I am a talk radio junkie. There are many reasons for this. The first reason is that we have a local news show that is top notch. Just the right blend of snarky sarcasm mixed with great news. That starts off my morning. Hats off to you, Dunk!! Then comes Glen Beck and even my girls know, that one gets turned off. He ain't usually fiitin' to listen too. He talks pretty off-color most of the day.

At 11, Rush saves the day. My husband can't stand him but I find him hilarious. He is full of satire and sarcasm. As I tell hubby, he is a "character". He pretends to be like that. I think in real life he is kind of like that-but he is a shocker on his show. That is his goal, to say it like no one else. I can usually only listen to him for an hour or so. Also, his profanity level is up so if he is too much of a potty-mouth, he gets turned off. Sean Hannity comes on from 2-5. I don't enjoy his show much. I listen from time to time, but he is basically Rush WITHOUT the punch.

Afte Sean comes the best of the best...The No-Spin Zone. Bill O'Reilley. He is my favorite and the one I listen too the least just because we don't listen to anything but each other during supper and TV usually wins after supper. I do love to hear Bill though. He starts off each show with "no-spin" news where he gives just the facts. As far as I know, this is the only place to get unbiased news. Now, after that, he is very biased and the rest of the show is straight Bill opinion. I love it because for the most part, Bill and I agree. He is looking out for me. I've read all his books and I hope he runs for president some day. He is rich as can be and I don't think he could be bought like so many other politicians. He also has the added bonus of being a christian. Come on Bill, be the prez!!

So this is my day, cleaning house, teaching kids and keeping up with the news via talk radio. Who could ask for anything more!!

Say it aint so Joe, I mean Jan. I didn't realize your recreational use of Rush had led to such a strong addiction. Did no one warn you that he's the gateway drug to Sean and Bill? What's next? Cal Thomas? My God, woman. Think of the children. There has to be some kind of 12 step program for this. I can round up some liberals and we can stage an intervention. ;) Just repeat after me...It's not REALLY fair and balanced. It's just a marketing ploy to boost ratings. It's not REALLY....
