Sirota

A while ago David Sirota was on the radio here in Colorado. He filled in for Jay Marvin when Jay was sick. Then he moved on to a show opposite shock jock heck-of-a-job Brownie on a RW talk station. Sirota totally destroyed the shock jock on almost every issue. He was soon fired.

Having said all that, I respected Sirotaís passion and points of view.

Now I can not tell who pays him. He takes a lot of positions against Dems. Perhaps he is making more money working for those who want to defeat us.

Done with Sirota.

1. Sirota is currently Bernie Sanders' senior adviser and speechwriter.

So there you have it (this should be in Primaries, BTW).

2. Thought about the category

But it was not specific to any candidates, just a media figure...

4. Ditto. I used to listen to him too back then. Now, he is the Glenn Greenwald of 'Democratic'

primary politics. And no more credible overall nor less questionable in his motivations.

5. Jay Marvin was great

He used to be on in Chicago when I lived there before CO.

8. Yes.. His health crises were tragic. I know he started painting about 5 years ago and sold on

Etsy for awhile. I don't think his health was ever going to really improve though.

6. He used to be on Al Franken's radio show on Air America Radio way back when,

and he was introduced with the song "My Sharona," which Franken called "My Sirota." At that time he seemed to be a conventional liberal but now he's specializing in bashing Democrats. I will refer to another pop song, "Lawyers, Guns and Money," which contains the line "How was I to know (s)he was with the Russians too?"

7. You beat me to it.

I remember this well. I agree that Sirota didnít seem nuts back then...Al Franken would not have had him on as a regular if he had been.

9. It's all about the Benjamins with him

Perhaps fatherhood turned him. I bet he would do a RW shock jock gig for a few bucks more than he gets now.

11. Why is David Sirota attacking Biden

on Twitter? He is a muckraker.
