    So many questions, so little time ...

    Ed is on 1090 am here in the Sound area. Its not Air America so he should be alright.

    They seem to be doing just fine...

    Perhaps but Rush's Show was created by the GOP. They charged the large stations to air his program just as any show would. However they donated his show free of charge or at greatly reduced rates to the smaller stations. They wanted to blanket the Nation with his show. Thus certain areas might only have a handfull of radio stations and they wanted to insure Rush was on them. The station got the show free and could pocket all the advertising money they received. In no time his show was National and they could spread the GOP agenda. Most Talkshow hosts get big by hard work and spread once their name is know. Not Rush, the GOP made him a mouth piece and built his show for him..

    I thought they were done for a long time ago. They were still on the air? Where?

    I did too, although I no longer drive for a living and rarely listen to talk radio anymore.

    And that just means that there are a lot of fools in this country.

    No, no, no!

    It's more because... hmmmmm, how shall I put it?... oh yeah!... their shows suck major donkey balls.
    I bet Canadian talking head shows suck donkey balls on an equal scale, regardless of their politics.

    Your hatred for Rush is a result of him continually winning every argument against liberals for two decades. He's so far ahead of their every move, it's like he's got their playbook in his hand.

    You know what? I can't even think of one. We don't seem to have any opinion shows in our network news, as far as I know. To me, that is a very good thing.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    That's not to say substance is a requirement as well. I tried listening to Air America twice and couldn't last 30 minutes.
    The problem the left is having is that even young people can see the bamboozle and lack of substance. If there was substance behind the Left's arguments, they'd be able to hold people's attention. As it is, people have the bad habit of growing up, and then the left loses them forever.
