The times, they are-a-changin'!  During the Bush reign of terror--sorry, war on terror and the Constitution, talk radio was the biggest cheerleading squad in history with daily rooting for the stupidity of Bush, no matter how egregious. Attack Iraq for no reason: YEA!  Tear the Constitution into confetti: YEA!  Torture, waterboard, rendition, lie, conceal, signing statements, spend us into oblivion in that middle-eastern sandbox, no bid contracts, yadayada, he's protecting us: YEA!  All with full control of Congress.

Now, Obama has been in office less that 100 days and if you listen to these flapping gas bags we not live in a totalitarian country that is being ruled by a, (pick one) Marxest, Leninest, Commie, Pinko, Islamofacist, anti-American who was born on the planet Xenon who will put your children in reducation camps, conscript your teenagers into a Hitler Youth force and confiscate all privately owned guns. 

Thanks to the Bush Administration's FCC and deregulation/consolidation of the broadcast industry this is pretty much what is left of the radio business.  Now that newspapers are disappearing as fast as Hummers we will be left with no true Fourth Estate but left to bloggers like me to tell you what is going on and I'm the first to admit that I haven't a clue either!
