not defending him, but elements giving him some conservative cred, pro-military, war on terror vs. police work (I know that makes him no more conservative than Obama), non-p/c stance on profiling, and at least some even-handedness with guests, which is more than you get out of a true leftist. Plus, doesn’t dissociate from his roots with Rizzo, to whatever degree that makes him conservative.
Furthermore, he's the most narcissistic, superficial, unintellectual, talk show host on radio. It is difficult to understand how anyone can stand listening to him. He lost me a long time ago, and yet almost every time there is a sound bite of him on 1210, throughout the day, it's all about Michael.
I don't mean to belabor the point, and no disrespect to you intended, people should understand, he's no conservative and shouldn't be mistaken for one, and that further he used conservatives and conservatism to launch his radio career.
