28. Speaking of Hate Radio

I live in Phoenix now, hotbed of Republicanism (but changing slowly). Anyway, several months ago I was driving back late one night from babysitting the grandkids, and I flicked on the radio for some company during the half-hour drive home. I settled on a station and listened to some man talking about what I wasn't sure. As he neared the end, his voice rose in a mighty crescendo - KENYAN SOCIALIST MARXIST COMMUNIST OBAAAAAMAAAAA! I sat there in shock. You had to have been there. I couldn't believe what I was listening to. I had never heard anything so hateful on the radio before. If Republicans are listening to this night after night, it's no wonder they are as rabid as they have become. So anyway, a few seconds of silence after this ugly rant, and a gentle voice comes on the air, and a man says, "You are listening to Fox radio - News, fair and balanced." Huh? I'm all for free speech, but this was actually frightening to me in its hatred. So where are the liberal radio stations, hiding I guess.
