The Right-Wing Tools are out for Halloween

Click here to listen to today's Halloween edition of Radio or Not--but be afraid, be very afraid! (runtime 35:30)

And I guess I was one too, as I dressed as the scariest character I could think of today!

At least I realized who'd make the best president!
Anyway, in my role as the contributor from the left on the 850 WFTL Morning Show, I truly got a workout today. I got hit from right field in the first few minutes of the show, when we were joined by Randall Terry.

If the name sounds familiar, it's because he was the spokesman for the Schindler family, Terry Schiavo's parents, during that lovely piece of Florida history. Now he's the mouthpiece for some Catholic Bishop who's telling his parishoners that if they're good Catholics, they can't vote for Obama because he's "pro-abortion"! Yes, my blood started boiling shortly after 6:00 this morning.
But wait, it got better! We were joined by another GOP tool, Tim McClellan, the "Broward Regional Manager of the McCain Victory '08 Office" (yes, that's his exact title), who callled in to tell us of a terrible incident that occurred when an apparent Obama supporter unfortunately pushed a McCain supporter. He only wanted to infer that this was indicative of all of us Obama supporters, and I wasn't about to let him get away with it.
Ok, just when you think we can't top that one... actor Jon Voight called in. It was a very civil interview... but he just had to blow it by quoting some UK columnist that no one ever heard of at the end about Obama's Jew-hating co-horts...
And finally, the piece de resistance.... none other than the hack Jerome Corsi, who's now alleging some nonsense about Obama and drug dealers. Thank God it's Friday!
We did get to speak with the Annette Taddeo, the Democratic Challenger to Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, but I didn't want to sully her good name by including the audio of that interview with the rest of the vile stuff from this morning. She will join me on the air again tomorrow, as I host a live three hour live show from noon-3pm on 850 WFTL. I promise it'll be a much more civil gathering than the truly frightening Halloween spectacle that was this morning's show.

But, if you listen in the spirit of Halloween, perhaps you can enjoy the horror of it all....
Please join me tomorrow, as I'll host a live show on 850 WFTL from noon-3 (eastern). If you're not in South Florida, you can still listen live online at And I hope you'll participate by calling in at 877-850-8585!

All I can say is I feel really sorry for you having to work in this environment. It's good to hear you back on talk radio, although it's hard to justify calling this Russ fellow talk radio. Maybe noise radio would be the best description for this obnoxious nonsense.

You definitely walk all over Russ and the guests, because you *gasp* have read newspapers and websites, studied the issues, and actually do some research. However, it is hard to have a legitimate discussion with someone when their only argument is the equivalent of putting their hands over their ears and chanting 'nah nah nah, I can't hear you'.

In fact, I'd describe him as the Fox and Friends of local radio; someone who can read the weather with a nice clear voice, knows a lot about football and popular media, but can barely name anyone in Washington other than the President.

Just stick tight, and be happy in the knowledge that come November 5th there will be a new face destined for the White House, who can give the American populous their belief and confidence back in the American government.

Oh, and if Thom wants to throw some more gigs your way, I'd be a happy camper. Maybe a quick phone call to Stephanie Miller wouldn't hurt, the two of you could be a very good team!
