Response to RadiationTherapy (Reply #4)

19. In the words of one dick cheney: "So?"

Don't care. The GREATER good comes from his being taken off the air. The whining he'll do trying to pass the blame around is irrelevant. And yes I realize he'll create a huge hole that some other rush-lite will be craving to fill. But it might also send them a message. Yeah, I realize also that the "send them a message!" blather is often just an empty statement - along the lines of all those voters who decide they simply MUST vote for a third-party candidate to "send them a message!" And they send a message alright, but not the one they thought they were sending, while effectively indulging in a political suicide pact that takes down or damages everything they've valued and fought for (example: nader).

But this is a unique moment. I think there's a momentum building here, which our side should exploit like gangbusters. First dr. laura. Then glenn beck. Now "jabber the hutt"? AT THE SAME TIME as the bad guys also lose andrew breitbart, the scheming susan g. komen partisans got their heads handed to them, the darrell issa "where are the women" hearing turned into a big red swollen oozing pustule, and bob mcdonnell had to capitulate on virginia's state-mandated vaginal probe bill (with the term "vaginal probe" now surgically attached to his name and reputation for as long as he'll draw breath - you think that won't wind up in the first paragraph of his obit whenever that eventually is written?). This is NOT a good season for the knuckle-draggers, and the more we can pile on, the more it'll hurt. And the farther back they'll fall, and the more ground they'll lose. This is an avalanche the likes of which we may not see again for a generation, and we can and should take full advantage of it. One doesn't often get a chance to push the pendulum back toward the truly "right" (as in CORRECT) direction: OURS.

On edit - sorry. I forgot to add THIS, my favorite link of the week:

How to fight back at the local radio level. WORTH IT!!!!
