talk radio

Put on a plaid flannel shirt and break out your Nirvana CDs, kids, because our rightwing Christian textbooks are looking at the ’90s: Bill Clinton is the president, and America is in deep moral decline, because didn’t you just read the name of the president?

Former Illinois congresscritter and forever deadbeat dad Joe Walsh was sent home early from his job as a wingnut talk radio host Thursday, because obviously the management of the radio station has no idea how Free Speach* works. See, all he was doing was making a commentary about the controversy over the Washington Redskins’ team […]

Sandy Rios, last seen in these pages wondering why our Supreme Court’s female justices cannot just shut up and respect their male betters, returns to remind us once again that all you need to score your own radio show is an ability to open your screech hole and let fly: Hillary Clinton, there have long […]

Months after the November election, conservatives are still wandering dazed through the cratered post-apocalyptic fever dream of an America they no longer recognize, one where a socialist tyrant somehow was democratically re-elected by a majority of voters to steal all the monies from the rich (2% of the population) and redistribute them to the poor […]

Professional whiner nutcase Glenn Beck announced that he will charge a monthly five-dollar subscription fee for viewers to log in to his latest online vanity project, Does anyone even have five dollars anymore? Maybe some quarters in the couch cushions. What will a Glenn Beck fan get in exchange for putting off the trip […]

Republican former Congressman and guy who played Gopher on The Love Boat Fred Grandy apparently spends his time these days hosting a conservative radio show. And, naturally, he likes to have his wife come on his show as a special guest under the undecipherable pseudonym “Mrs. Fred” to talk about birther crap and how a […]

Hey, Rush Limbaugh is a person who is still alive, at the moment! He says Michelle Obama is fat. “I’m trying to say that our First Lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date […]

Sure, the people of Tucson love getting shot. But did they know they can also get shot on the radio? It’s true! They just have to listen to Rush Limbaugh on their radio, according to this billboard that’s “down the street where Giffords was shot.”

Yesterday, Dave Weigel noted that, while no candidates have jumped in the current presidential race thus far, at this time last cycle, 14 candidates were already in the race. “By contrast, in this election cycle, not even dark horse candidates like Herman Cain or John Bolton have announced anything yet.” Well, here they come: This […]

You mean to tell us Allen West got rid of the insurrectionist he chose to be his chief of staff — that woman who wants to shoot up all his soon-to-be colleagues and probably give away governmental secrets on her conservative radio host job? Surprising. Those people are always the best employees.

Glenn Beck and an army of Teabaggers are going to march on Washington on the anniversary of the “I Have a Dream” speech this weekend for some reason or another. Basically somebody at Beck headquarters said, “Let’s get some of those yelling people to yell about things on the National Mall, but let’s put Glenn […]

Young hearthrob Rush Limbaugh has a brand new Facebook page, and he has used this platform to at long last give the screeching masses what they want: photos of his wedding. “Sharing a laugh with Elton John backstage before his performance” is the caption on this one. Yes, somehow KNOWN HOMOSEXUAL ENEMY Sir Elton John […]

Hard to find even the Gallows Humor in this story, so maybe we won’t even try. Maybe it’s time to admit that large chunks of America are in the hands of unreconstructed racists and vulgar idiots, and that the popular election of a black man as president just might’ve pushed these furious, economically doomed old […]

The trade journal Inside Radio reports: “While not exactly shopping the GOP’s 2008 vice presidential candidate, sources say Palin representatives have been quietly testing the waters to see how much interest radio syndicators have for her.” Perfect! This is how Palin does everything now: passive-aggressively “gauge interest” and if people don’t kiss your ass enough, […]
