Liberal radio is airing bad jokes and worst taste

The United States "is on the slippery slope to theocratic fascism." "The Catholic Church has been secretly encouraging oral sex for years." Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld "ought to be tortured." President Bush should be taken out and shot.

Those are a few nutso nuggets from the hosts of Air America Radio, which calls itself the new liberal voice.

"President Bush should be taken out and shot."

The left is saying this more openly these days. The Secret Service needs to do their duty and take out these antiAmerican thugs.

Death threats against the president are a Federal crime.

(GM will no longer run ads on Air America)

I'm disgusted to hear that GM had been running ads on Err Amerika. I'm glad I don't own any GM vehicles; I might have had to junk them.

Pretty good piece on the sludgefest called Air America. I did notice this little barb directed towards Rush Limbaugh, though. The writer probably felt he had to do so in order to preempt charges of being part of the VWRC.

If Franken & Co. hate the pill-popping Limbaugh so much, why imitate his tarpit tone?

Ryndee Carney, GM's manager of marketing communications, said the ads were wrongly picked up from an earlier deal with WLIB. She said the station was ordered to "cease and desist" yesterday, and added: "GM will not advertise on any Air America affiliates."

The article notes that the ads were left over from a previous ad buy, when the station was a different format. GM has slapped Air America with a "cease and desist" order to force them to stop airing their commercials. Not only can this dreck not attract advertisers, but the advertisers who inadvertently end up on their stations are threatening legal action to get off.

Oh yeah, this is going to be a REALLY successful radio network.

From what I hear of most American cars, they'd junk themselves in a few years anyway ;)

I always laugh when Democratic politicians say they are "faithful Catholics" or say that "Democrats have to take back God" in campaigns.

A few hours on DU show clearly the contempt and hatred their base has for God. Nothing gets them laughing quite as hard as a few nasty jokes about the pope or Christians.

To hear Err America loves this "humor" is not unexpected.

It must be pretty darn bad to have a Democrat rag like the Daily News saying so.

while offensive, the things they are saying are good to hear. It means they are cracking up and failing big time. Their response is to become more shrill and desperate.

"Death threats against the president are a Federal crime."

It sounds like they're hoping one lone nut might take them seriously. They'll be everything they accused the rightwing media of being.

Rock bottom came when she [Randi Rhodes] compared Bush and his family to the Corleones in the "Godfather" saga. "Like Fredo, somebody ought to take him out fishing and phuw," she said, imitating the sound of gunfire.

When it comes to the war against GWB, ms. rhodes is unwilling to give peace a chance.

If we make enough anonymous tipster phone calls re: Randi Rhodes' support for assassinating Bush...

Will the Secret Service do a dynamic entry arrest warrant on her?

In a purely hypothetical case, of course.

It was a mistake and GM is taking them to court if they don't remove them immediately.

Their fring wacko kookiness only demonstrates they are in desperation mode. I say let them air their grieveances on the air. They're too stupid to mask their true feelings like Liberal politicians.

Ok, Ok, point made.

But those are the exception. I plan to get 200k+ out of my toyota 2jz-ge and that won't be a surprise to many.
