I apologize to all of the people that have been checking for updates. Things have been slow for me in the realm of Talk Radio. If you're interested I've posted more of my "artwork" (another word for "garbage") at and my other blog is

"I'm right and you're an idiot!"

I found this on a blog:
"so. I love conservative talk radio. I love the inflammatory hosts, the "I'm right, and you're an idiot" attitude. Highly amusing. "
The response that I posted:
Since you mentioned conservative talk radio hosts having an "I'm right and you're an idiot" attitude I will comment - while I can only defend hosts that I listen to I will say that none of them have that attitude at all. And if a host is right there is always going to be someone that thinks they're an idiot. If someone tells me the sky is red when I can see that it is blue I will be interpreted as having an "I'm right and you're an idiot" attitude. So be it. Most critics of conservative talk radio hosts have only listened to certain hosts for a very, very short time anyway and have not grasped the host's personality.

I find it amusing when I hear callers tell a host "I know you're going to hang up on me because I disagree with you, etc. etc." It's obvious that these are first-time callers and all that they know about the host that they are calling is what they've heard from other people because in the decade or more than I've listened to talk radio I can honestly say that I've ever heard anyone hung up on because they disagreed with a certain host. Some calls were abrubtly ended because the caller was not making any sense - this happens all the time. I remember a caller to Mark Levin in December who kept saying "I know you're going to hang up on me now" - the caller couldn't even get to his point.

A friend gets through on Rush's show

reprinted from my friend's blog -

Milestone: Cliffy makes Limbaugh!!

On Wednesday, February 2nd, 2006 at 12:45 pm, the following exchange occurred:

RUSH: Cliff in Portland, Oregon, I'm glad you called, sir. Welcome to the EIB Network. CALLER: Mega out-of-control dittos from Portland, Oregon, where literally three-quarters of the city's citizens STILL have Kerry-Edwards bumper stickers on their cars!
RUSH: Well, you gotta feel sorry for them.
CALLER: I do. It's just so funny. But the reason I called is regarding, I think you called it issue #4, that was the surveillance wiretapping part? I was watching the whole thing on Fox and right as -- I'm pretty sure it was on that one, they showed the gum chewer and she was rolling her eyes and had a mocking laughter smile on her face when he was saying all this.
RUSH: Yeah. Well let me explain what Hillary was reacting to there, because the little known fact is that Bush made reference to previous presidents having done exactly what he's done, and Mrs. Clinton heard, without his name being mentioned, his name. And the Democrats are trying to set Bush up as a criminal, that he has broken the law, and so by invoking all these past presidents, not by name, but saying, "Hey, we've all done it before with previous presidents," he brought Bill Clinton into it -- and Hillary doesn't like it when her husband's name gets mentioned. There was another instance. Bush told a joke about... What was the line? He had a joke about Clinton being (interruption). Yeah, (paraphrased), "My brother and I both turned 60 this year," Bill Clinton, and they cut to Hillary, and she was not laughing. She was glaring, because I'm telling you, folks, she is sick and tired of her husband being the butt of all these jokes. Not sick and tired because it's unfair; sick and tired because it's warranted, and it's just embarrassing to her. So Bush got her twice last night, too. Ah, this was great. I mean, you want Hillary looking that way, Cliff! That's the way she really is: chewing gum during the State of the Union address and glaring at the president of the United States. It was a homerun.
NOTE: "(interruption)" is Rush's staff saying something to him that you don't hear on the air. I Don't want anyone thinkin' I would ever interrupt the mighty Maha Rushie!
As anyone who's ever tried to call Limbaugh's show can tell ain't easy gettin' through and gettin' through doesn't necessarily guarantee you on-air time either.

I'll have an mp3 of this available for download this Saturday, so be on the lookout for that.
