39. Air America got old for me after only a few sessions
At first it was exciting to have a counterpunch to the right wing idiots on the airwaves, but too often the shows became nothing much more than one of the rightwing shows, only in reverse, with the screaming and extremist rants. Some of the rants were great, but so many others just plain got old and weary.

I can understand how Right Wing hate radio works for the no-minded neocon imbeciles who can't think for themselves, but I can't understand how any independent-thinking adults could ever get hooked for too awful long on any kind of biased talk radio, including Air America.

Because Progressives are much more intelligent and independent minded than Repukes, I don't think Liberal radio will ever have as large an audience as rightwing hate radio does.

I would much rather see us get a TV station that offers an option to Fox News and its affiliate, MSNBC.
