40. Its the hosts fault AAR isn't working
I don't know what Al Franken is doing going around like some
ambassador for liberals (with a big head to match) on the star trip.

Being pro-war isn't progressive. Neither is ignoring election fraud.
Him and Randi is the cause IMO, and Ed.

His show in so inffective in smashing the flying monkey right it
is just like listening to PBS or NPR total snooze fest. I do like
the parts with Tom Oliphant who is a real brain and a good writer.

I was dismayed to find out, that AAR can't stomach the slightest
criticism. I used to send little emails telling them "hey Randi always
interupts the callers, she too mean to them" or "why do you always
cut off the callers or talk over your guest before they made their point?"

They showed no character, in fact, retaliated against me for saying that.

Really poor interviewing skills, bad questions etc. Even when a Senator
or Congressman came on, Randi would go on a big diatribe instead of asking a question and letting them answer.

That is bad radio, letting the host go on and on and making everything
about YOU.(listening Al?)

Who died and made Al Franken, God?

Get over yourself Al, AAR is at the bottom of every market, according to the spring 06 Arbitrons, and it ain't because of Mike Malloy!

AAR isn't at the bottom because of the progressives, its because you and your boring CFR/DLC terror conversations on Iraq on how to get control of the country and capture Zarqawi.

This is progressive radio, not some DC think tank segment on PBS or
Charlie Rose for gods sake!
