Dead Air America Part Deux
Like everybody else, I gave this a listen the first day and haven't tuned in since. I realized today that perhaps this was not a good idea, since Franken & Company probably expected it. So I thought I'd give them another chance.
If anything, it's worse than I remembered. They seem to have gotten comfortable with the fact that they suck. Franken talks like he's on Quaaludes--very slow, with lots of uhs and you knows to spice things up. He even uhs on the station breaks: "And, uh, we'll be back, uh, with more of, uh...." You sure this is drug-free radio?
Apparently Henry Kissinger is getting the Ann Coulter treatment today as the "humorous" "guest". Sounds like Franken's trying to imitate him, by talking while breathing in. Of course, this renders him almost unintelligible, which may be a blessing. About the only thing I could understand was that Kissinger & Associates works with Al Qaeda on the PR side. The sidekick, Lampher, helps out by laughing like Ed McMahon on nitrous oxide. Of course, her laughter is like the sound of a nightingale compared to Franken's haaannnhaaannnhaannn.
They're claiming it's a lie that Bush inherited a recession. This is tedious as hell, and they immediately turn it around and claim what he actually inherited was "record" surpluses. Only 11 minutes left until Rush comes on, and I'm about to slit my wrists.
