  •  That's exactly my problem with him (none)
    The progressive talk station here in Austin, KOKE, started out as a straight Air America affiliate, but started running Schultz from 2-5 on weekdays. Which means only one hour a day of Randi Rhodes.

    Now, Randi can get on my nerves too, but not because she ever backs down on anything. My problem with Schultz is that frankly he spends too much time mealy-mouthing and criticizing the left wing of the party--as if this is a sop to make him seem "reasonable."

    Which is precisely what right-wing talkers like Rush and Liddy don't do, and what makes them so effective with their audience, IMO.

    Ah well. I can always stream the Goddess of Radio. Thank you broadband!

    •  Just in case (none)
      you didn't know. You can listen to Randi 'On-Demand' at The Randi Rhodes Archives.

    •  Randi Rhodes.... (none)
      Yes I agree Schultz can take strange positions and sound uneducated on a lot of subjects BUT Randi is so whiney! All she does is bitch about something the right did over and over again. The reason Rush and others are effective is because they control the content; they set the agenda. Randi just reacts and is thus a tool of the right. If we want to swing votes, not just blow liberals, we have to give solid examples of republican mistakes, then provide creative and strong solutions that create a message. Otherwise we continue to sound like a scared minority party instead of the powerful majority that we actually are.

      Remeber what you see here today because the media will lie about it. -anonyomous
