Steve Schmidt sure has been down to earth lately. (with a Bachmann aside)

Saw him twice in the last couple of days on MSNBC. Rachel had him on and gave him the business regarding Bob Dole's rather blunt assessment recently of the state of the Republican party. Just an observation of my own about Schmiidt's demeanor. What do you all think of 2014/16 at this time? Also, regarding Bachmann's departure, do you suppose the state of the Republican party is such that they will field someone equally as extreme or even more so for that race? I just don't see how the Republicans can possibly coalesce around anything meaningful or solidly centrist anytime soon. Thoughts?

Local radio stations being sold

ANDERSON, Ind. — Don’t touch that dial.

Six east central Indiana radio stations, including Anderson’s WHBU (AM 1240) and Alexandria’s WMQX (FM 96.7), are being sold to Woof Boom Radio, a new group headed by veteran broadcaster J Chapman.
(snip)
The goal is to return the stations to local control, Chapman said, which would better-serve their combined estimated 89,400 weekly listeners. The stations are currently owned by Backyard Broadcasting LLC, based in Jacksonville, Fla.

“I can’t stress ‘local’ enough,” Chapman said. “We want to understand what’s important to the community.” For Anderson and Alexandria, he said that could include programming focused on and produced in Madison County.

My comments: I can't believe this is happening. An actual step in the right direction. I hope it starts a trend, that's for sure.
