Does Rush ever talk about Al Franken...
and Franken's "lies" or some such? Al spends a lot of time (I only get to listen for 30 minutes every few weeks) debunking stuff the other bozos say. I wonder if he's reached enough people (Al) to force them to address the issues he's raising.

How are the ratings anyway? Good I hope. It seems like AAR is doing far better than it looked maybe 6 months ago.

I actually get a chance to listen to more Randi Rhodes than Franken. She's doing great, and definitely irking the right wing wack jobs.

2. I wonder the same thing about Randi Rhodes.
Does Limbaugh ever talk about her? I know he's scared of her.

8. She Kicks *ass*
and tears the right wing callers apart, and uses facts to do it! I loved her attack on the guy who called in about torture yesterday.

Those people who move into "where's the outrage about the beheadings" are immediately so incredibly stupid, it's hard to talk to even reason with them or take them seriously. I mean isn't it *OBVIOUS* that it's outrageous, but the thing is WE DON'T CONTROL THE INSURGENTS, WE DON'T CONTROL TERRORISTS, but we SHOULD be able to control our Government. That's why we're outraged by what George Jr. and his cronies are doing, because they're doing it in our name, and we SHOULD be able to stop it.

Gah!

11. she's beat him in his own area, West Palm Beach.
She killed his numbers.
I doubt he talks about her much, considering she kicked his ass.

10. Al plays very few Limbaugh clips.
In three hours on a bad day he may play three clips. Many days Rush is not mentioned even though he is a target rich blob. Small price to pay for a Al's show.

12. Personally, I like when he takes it to Rush...
I just know too many people who get all their "news" from Rush, so debunking him is absolutely necessary, I just hope he gets enough of an audience to do it effectively and get the word out conclusively that Rush is a big fat liar.

16. Same here
Showing the Right's big gun as a perfidious pimp is a great public service by Al.

4. WSJ article a few weeks ago
said AAR looking good with new investment and new markets. Had little dots making pictures of Al and Randi.

5. Yes, Franken has played some clips of Limbaugh talking about him...
but Limbaugh won't call him by name. He refers to Franken as "Stuart Smalley."

6. "Stuart Smalley", how original. Did Limbaugh steal that from O'Reilly...
or vice versa?

7. I haven't heard that
I have heard O'Lielly call Al "Stuart" but I haven't heard that from Fat Boy.

15. Rush is on the top of the mountain.
It doesnt behoove him to publisize anyone he isnt networked to.

If Franken were #1 he wouldnt mention Rush.

17. I've never heard Rush mention any competitor but Hannity
I think he's chosen Hannity as his successor and wants to prop him up. But he's never mentioned O'Reilly, Savage, Liddy, or any of the Air America people by name. I think he talked about Air America as a concept for a while but doesn't address them much. O'Reilly won't shut up about anyone; he's the one who calls Franken "Stuart Smalley."
