I Spoke Too Soon

Now why didn’t I figure this out?

So today’s defeat for free-market economics and Republican values is a huge win for the conservative entertainment industry. Their listeners and viewers will now be even more enraged, even more frustrated, even more disappointed in everybody except the responsibility-free talkers on television and radio. For them, it’s mission accomplished. For the cause they purport to represent, it’s Waterloo all right: ours.

Just like with the primaries and all of the ad money Michael Berry made off of teabaggers and republicans through ad dollars, this vote means more money for him and his station.

Who am I to tell him how to run it?

Duly chastened.

  1. The quote is soooo cynical that, when you think of Limbaugh & O’Reilly & Hannity, it has the real ring of truth … Maybe because he’s an older guy or because he spend all that time plagiarizing lists of virtues, Bill Bennett does seem to enjoy showering his ‘heroes’ with rose petals as much if not more than showering dung upon his perceived opponents, but the other crowd (the obese druggie, the lecherous draft-dodger, & the narcissistic high school drop-out) clearly get a major kick out of slinging crap, so they’ll be in hog-heaven the more targets they have for their lies & hysteria …

    • It’s all about money.

      I used to think that the new ratings system would come along — the one that was supposed to include public radio ratings, but I am sure that probably won’t happen. Combined, you know that NPR gets far more listeners that Limbaugh or any of the others. And seriously, how many besides people like me listen to AM radio? Old white fuckers. And how long can you suck the money out of rubes selling gold (prices falling), survival seeds (say what?) and fancy mattresses.

      I read today that Glen Beck didn’t get why Nancy and John Lewis and the others walked hand in hand, arm in arm to vote for HCR. Idiot. And I heard Limbaugh whining that commenters on some forum or blog were mocking him, so he whined about how liberals aren’t nice. Big WATB.
