I have enjoyed a lot of shows and TV Channels which have either been canceled or went bankrupt. It happens and if there is a market for it, someone will do it right and make a ton of money off it.
Harry, we can’t afford everything that someone thinks is a good idea. It is not your money so you aren’t very particular but we are.

Harry Reid Defends NPR: I Heard a Really Good Piece on 'Dog Racing'Hey I saw one on dog racing the other day...But it was on Larry The Cable Guy's show, not PBS or NPR.
These two make we want to vomit. They are sleezy..
BTW. Todd Palin is the four-time-winner of the Iron Dog race.
The point isn’t that they never slip a story about normal people into their fawning coverage of gays and unions and other special interests beloved by the far left. The point is that it’s not an appropriate use of government money - of our children’s money.
Puff pieces on corrupt Dems, never ending attacks on non-fellow travelers that somebody claims looked askance at them from across town.
Is Dingy Harry really this dense?
