WorldNetDaily.com ^ | September 27, 2005 | Joe Kovacs

Air America, the liberal radio counterpart to Rush Limbaugh, is now asking its listeners to send in money, leading some analysts to say the network is "crumbling."

The network, featuring voices including Al Franken and Janeane Garofalo, has developed a program where people become "associate" members by contributing cash.

Is that true? (Maybe they could ax Rush for a loan in order to keep the lights on - eh?)

If you send in a penny with their signature required, does it cost them more money to process it than it brings in ?

I like that look on his face. It is the same look he will have when he meets his maker.

What's the tax status of Air? Are liberals going to donate then find they can't take it off their taxes?

Rush was touting his new bumperstickers today.

What is Franken selling? Or is the idea just to send him your money and get nothing back in return? (Crazy libs gotta learn about Capitalism!)

If you send in a penny with confirmation required, does that legally obligate them to issue you a receipt ?

I suppose they could refuse the donation, but then they would have to choose to refuse similar donations from others.

These guys were doomed from the start. What companies are going to advertise on a network that is inherently anti-capitalist? No ad revenue, no money to keep the transmitter tubes glowing.

Besides, with the exception of the Hollywood 'elite', most liberals are poor and young. They couldn't afford to buy any of the crap hawked on the shows anyway. When you listen to Rush, et. al. every third commericial is for a geriatric product or some kind of B-to-B service. The age/income gap is huge between Rush and AirAmerica.

I sent a paid for Kerry campaign return envelope back with 50 some pennies taped inside... I'm sure it came up postage due. Worth every penny!

Funny you should mention that.. Most of the commercials are for miracle vitamins and anti-balding drugs. The local affiliate (WCKY) runs religious programming in the overnight hours... whats up with that!

They expect their listeners to send money?  AA's target audience are left wing libbies who think that everything from coffee to music to internet should be free.

Good luck with that.

I'd be a little more mean . . . make it a quarter. The required cost/benefit analysis calculations would short-circuit what passes for their minds.

That "stage of growth" would be eating, paying the rent or buying drugs.

And they'd make him unroll every roll, since they don't take 'em like that!

What I want to know is where I can get a canvas bag with a big dollar sign on the side. You know, the kind the cartoon bank robbers used to run off with after the heist.

When Err America finally signs off for the last time look for CNN to scoop up on Franken to create the Matthews & Franken Show which will promptly draw even lower ratings than the former John McEnroe Show on NBC, if that is possible.

Hello welcome to the show!

How would you get proof that she actually got the tattoo?

Do you really want to have to look at a picture of Garafalo's butt?

Maybe you could accept a notarized statement, but that would mean trusting these people. Do you think that's a good idea? They take money from children and old people with Alzheimer's.
