19. I have a theory about talk radio, and why it's so popular with the right.

When a liberal, especially a younger one, turns on the radio they bop their head and sing along.

When a conservative turns on the radio they make a face and ask no one in particular what the hell kind of crap is this. They complain that they can't even understand the words.

They then switch bands and listen to the woeful plight of other disgruntled conservatives like themselves, who feel the world and pop culture has left them behind.

Therefore, I doubt any liberal talk radio will ever do any better than Air America. That is, they'll find listeners, but not on the scale seen by Limbaugh and Levin.
