I hit the wrong button the radio today while driving to get the kids and was transported to AM Radio Land. Let me tell you, it's different out there. On one station, the host spent ten minutes screaming at the top of his lungs about how Kerry insulted the nation during the second debate when he looked around and said that no one in the audience looked like they were earning over $200,000 per year. “He called you losers!!!” the guy kept shouting, “He said you are all losers!!!” over and over and over again. (Is everyone who makes under $200,000 a “loser” in AM Radioland?)
Three stations to the right, there's a female evangelist saying that many people have asked her if the storms lashing Florida might be some chastisement that G-d has aimed at Florida. No, of course not, she replies, these storms come from the Enemy and are part of a plot to distract people into caring too much about daily life, and ignoring the really important thing we must all do. And what is that? Why, we must elect the right people to office come November 2: “G-dly people, not liberals.”
I am not making this up.
