The blessings of talk radio

We've been traveling the last few days. The wife is a political junkie who has withdrawal symptoms without her daily fix of Rush, Sean, and FNC, so on trips, I have no choice but to listen to Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity at a minimum. Having learned some survival techniques over the years, I quietly acquiesce to her demands. Today, I listened through Rush to portions of GW's speech from New Jersey, and was gratified by the "strike 'em back" tone that so many of us have been wishing for. May there be more of the same daily until Nov 2 - it would be so satisfying to us all!

After completing the trip, I observed that the audiences of Rush and Sean must surely exceed that of the NYT/WP/LAT and all of their left-wing minions - even the "news" sections of ABC/NBC/ABC/CNN. There is a comfort in the knowledge that Rush is a sure antidote to the mindless, meaningless and hateful scrawlings of a Molly Ivins or Maureen Dowd, influencing far more voters on a daily basis. This certainly explains the hateful spews of "Air Amerika" and the vitriol they hold for those who defend and love our country.

Perhaps we can save our country from the hatemongers and spite spitters again, at least for four more years.
