    and I've been listening to her for years.
       Hey, Ed Schultz fucked up once or twice, but that doesn't mean he's the same as Limbaugh or the other blowhards on the lunatic fringe.
       Clearly a case of false equivalence here.

    •  and fans of Rush Limbaugh have no issue with him (0+ / 0-)

      Thats the thing about Shock Jocks... they know their audience and know how to play to it.  Its how they make their living.

      I stopped listening back on Air America.  I remember how stupid I thought it was that she opened her Friday shows every week with the theme song "Bounce Your Boobies".   She used the song for 12 years on various stations before they either fired her or went bankrupt (which are the only two reasons she's had for switching jobs) so I guess her listeners found it completely hilarious.

      Oh.. and she had a special sound effect called the "Cherry Pop" for anytime someone said they were a first time caller.  Classy lady, that one.

      ooh.. or when Bush was in office and floating the idea of privitizing Social Security, she aired this:

      The announcer: "A spoiled child is telling us our Social Security isn't safe anymore, so he is going to fix it for us. Well, here's your answer, you ungrateful whelp: [audio sound of 4 gunshots being fired.] Just try it, you little bastard. [audio of gun being cocked]."
      uh-huh... so if a Republican did this we would be all inflamed about the threat to the president, the gun nuttery, the inciting of violent behavior, the suggestion of violence.  But when she does it its what? .....a clever skit?  Insightful commentary?

      But what do I know....  you've been listening to her for years, so it must be okay.
