Alas, Sad, Sad News

Cue the violins, fire up the hearse, pay the mourners.

From the Associated Press:

Air America Radio, a liberal talk and news radio network that features the comedian Al Franken, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, a network official told The AP.

The network had denied rumors just a month ago that it would file for bankruptcy. On Friday, Air America spokeswoman Jaime Horn told The Associated Press that the filing became necessary only recently after negotiations with a creditor from the company's early days broke down.

Who could have guessed that the market for retarded leftwing lunacy would crumble? I ask everyone to petition the US Department of the Interior and request that moonbats be placed on the endangered species list.

3 Their target audience (the young, the stupid, and people without jobs) doesn't listen to talk radio. They watch TV, and go to myspace pages.

Radio is for people that are in their cars. They are in their cars performing tasks related to their employment. People with jobs that put them behind the wheel of a vehicle have more brain power than the idiots that believe the lies and hate spewed by the left.

I knew this would fail, I called it. It is the typical "guiding hand" philosophy of communisim. Talk radio arose to meet the demand of the market. It was NOT foisted upon the masses by some puppetmaster. The first talk show hosts were liberal jouralists, who were trounced in the ratings by conservatives.

I was thrilled to see all of these stupid evil jackasses pour there resources into a doomed project. That is capital wasted, never to be effectively spent to further their communist dreams.

4 Air America was a projectile-vomit spew of Randy Roads/Al Franken's undigested stomach-pump junk food for the left-wing mind [pardon the oxymoron]. It paid stations to run its drivel, since the audience ranged from slim to none and advertisers wouldn't run ads on such an idiotic set of programs.

I listened only a few times, and between the vulgarities, the obscenities, and the inanities, there was nothing but idle chatter about the weather. Otherwise just chewing gum for the left-wing mind [again, pardon the oxymoron].

But I watched an ultra-left professor at the U. of Minnesota-Duluth last night on The Factor and this obese idiot claimed Bush was behind the 9/11 disaster and had it staged with thousands of accomplices. UWis-Madison has an adjunct prof making his students buy a book touting the same insane lunacy.

Franken just moved to Minnesota, to be closer to his mental colleagues who elected the brain-challenged buffoon-wrestler Jesse Ventura. The dumb Swedes and Norwegians there eat lutefisk and adore Garrison Keillor. Something in the water, I guess. By the way, Minnesota and Wisconsin lakes are where the loon is found more than anywhere else. Coincidence?

9 It doesn't matter to Franken, because he's good enough, smart enough, and doggonit; people like him.

10 Just fulfills my prophecy of two years ago, when I said that talk radio would never work as a format for Liberal audiences -- it's just too geared for the loud, the ignorant, the ill-informed, the intolerant, and others who know just enough to be dangerous.

11 daveinboca--I assume this means you live in Florida, where half the population consists of retired Minnesotans and Wisconsinites? I been there ... what a Disney dump. Could hardly wait to get back to the Twin Cities, where people actually think for themselves.

12 Hay Gleep, you just described Rush Limbaugh.

Posted by: Wormpaste at October 14, 2006 06:39 PM

13 Exactly ...

Posted by: Gleep! at October 15, 2006 09:28 AM

14 Yet. Rush is still there raking it in big time and his detractors still make near minimun wage.
