    The Supreme Court is still pondering whether to permit fleeting expletives on the airwaves, but a San Francisco radio station isn’t waiting for the decision. A host on San Francisco’s top-rated KGO told his fans Tuesday that the station had fired him over comments he made a few days before the election about Joe Wurzelbacher, the suddenly famous unlicensed plumber who got caught up in the candidates’ tax policy debates

    Joe the Plumber has ticked off a lot of pundits, but over the weekend, he cost one his job, at least temporarily. Charles “Karel” Bouley, a weekend radio personality on San Francisco’s KGO, had just gone from a listener phone call into the top-of-the-hour news feed, with his microphone off– or so he thought. Instead, his mic was still live, broadcasting his musings on that night’s news to thousands of listeners to KGO, the Bay Area’s #1 radio station. He didn’t have nice things to say about Joe Wurzelbacher, the unlicensed Ohio plumber who ended up caught in the tug...

    I know this is not the biggest piece of news for the day, but I heard this live and could not let it pass unremarked upon. Ronn Owens, a moderate Dem who generally supports the President, has the big-rating morning talk show on KGO 810 AM in San Francisco. He had the despicable Socialist Congressman (masquerading as a Democrat) Pete Stark on this morning. As I tuned in, I heard Ronn ask him about Iraq and the President. I was driving, but this is the gist of the conversation: Ronn: (asks about Stark's opposition to the action against Saddam and...
