Mountains, Molehills, Rush, and Hannity

When I saw this headline over on RedState today, I knew I'd be in for a lot of fun. I just had to share.

Liberals in the press are soiling themselves in excitement that Cumulus might drop Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, the nation’s most popular and second most popular radio programs.

Apparently, the problem is that "Cumulus made some business mistakes and some large acquisitions".

See, we stoopid Libs think the problem is Limbaugh's mouth. Oh, no. It seems the real problem is that Cumulus thought they could schedule cheaper local talent against Limpity and save themselves some money. But Cons listeners are too smart for that. See Cons listeners know enough to switch away from the cheap talk and find stations where they can listen to Big Stupid, so revenues went down for Cumulus. Everyone knows, radio will be rolling in the green again when there is more airtime for Limbaugh and Hannity.

Those ad minutes of dead air are just in your imagination, Righties. Just keep pressuring Premier and Comcast and Time/Warner to keep these blowhards on the air. It's just what they all deserve.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
