Good news for a Friday

Bill O'Reilly to end syndicated radio show

Ahhhhhh.... one less monumentally stupid asshole to listen to on the radio. Now if only he stopped doing the TV show and newspaper article the world would be a better place.

Why can't the conservatives find someone like say Rachel Maddow to host their shows? No, I don't mean an attractive lesbian (although I'd be impressed and rather amazed if they did), I mean a well-spoken, intelligent person who is capable of having a rational discussion with a guest, EVEN if she disagrees with them. You know, someone who won't resort to hurling spittle-laced verbal attacks at the first hint that someone disagrees with them. Someone who actually lets their guests finish a sentence on a regular basis.

It's no secret that I've never been a fan of Bill-O, but seriously, over the last few months of watching how Maddow handles guests vs how Bill-O manhandles them, I'm astonished that he still has any sort of audience (or guests for that matter). Apparently being a loud, obnoxious, self-congratulatory, ignorant, oaf is popular among a surprisingly large demographic of TV viewers.

Gah, patience!

This is the part of the day that I hate.

It's a bit after 5, but I can't go anywhere because the traffic is bad enough to make it a pain so I have to wait another hour or so to mosey on out and get some stuff for this weekends' outdoors excursion. Well ok, technically I can and do wander out around this time from time to time, but I do my best to avoid it as much as possible. Faced with the annoyance of waiting and the annoyance of dealing with really stupid drivers, I stay off the road.

But, I totally suck at being patient. Impatience is my virtue :-p
