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.

AFAICT it's the same sort of schnadenfreude that keeps not-Drs Phil and Laura on the air.
Ah.... you mean the willfully ignorant, mean-spirited, voyeur demographic.

I hadn't thought about them.... I try very hard not to.

So less growling, more scowling then?
