No, it's not just you. He trumped his horn throughout the buildup to war . . . going so far as to put out press releases to the national media promoting himself as "the nation's only conservative talk show host opposing war in Iraq." He didn't just have a little philosophical difference with his audience -- he used his stance as his attempted springboard to prominence.
Not that he is a liberal, but his approach did seem to be like many Democrats and local pro-business "republicans" who sided up with Janet Napolitano in her bid for governor. He figured that if he guessed right and had poo-poo'ed a war gone bad, he'd have increased prominence. So, he intellectually saddled up with the protestors. He claims he just had an honest disagreement. The trouble with that argument is that he didn't have a "gentleman's disagreement" but rather spent hours every day making fun of everyone who disagreed with him . . . whilst whining about being a maverick and putting out self-promoting press releases.
The guy is boring and sufficiently sanctimonious to turn most everyone off. I NEVER thought he was a "key" person at KFYI and am most happy to get to listen to someone else driving home.

Goyette is the most boring guy on KFYI, hands down. He has nothing on "Frick and Frack," as he calls Austin Hill and Tom Liddy for an evening drive-time program.
I tuned in to Charles "Yob" Goyette last night, he started off by asking why his ears were itching, suggesting that the only reason he was there was because his key still worked.
He then said he wasn't going to talk about the article.
Then, after listening to him talk about the article for another 5 minutes, it became clear that he wasn't on the air with the purpose of entertaining an audience, that's for sure.
He started making fun of his critics, and then criticizing them for daring to criticizing him.
Charles is just a boring talk show host, trying to ignite some listenership.
