I pride myself in knowing what's going on around me politically but I was caught unawares the other day while visiting a local business. A radio was belching political talk from behind the counter and I asked the clerk what station he was listening to. He told me and I said "don't you get kind of tired of that political stuff all day long?". He said "well, I hate Obama, so this is my station cause that's all it is". As usual, I let it go, paid for my stuff, and when I got into my car I tuned into the station to see what was up.
Boy, was he right. It was a non-stop I hate President Obama call-in program. I was tempted to call in posing as one of them to get on the air but eventually realized that they apparently don't put callers on the air with an IQ over 60 and I'm pretty sure mine's at least 95. Just in the few minutes I was listening, the host used a teaser, before about 4 commercial interruptions, that a new report claims that President Obama will not complete his first term. Wow, that gets people's attention, because what could create that situation? He can't get impeached and thrown out while there's a majority of Dems in the Senate. He seems healthy.... Oh, I get it!! Through the radio you could almost hear the racists chambering a round.
Well, it turns out that the report was from an over-seas organization and was submitted to and aired on IRAN TV!!! And the Right Wing picked it up for air in the US? Real patriots those wingers are. The report did not hint or suggest anything other than impeachment on "mental competency" grounds, yet the radio host dishonestly and repeatedly implied that President Obama would not complete his first term because of some event. In doing so, he was knowingly injecting a huge hit of bigot-meth into his listener's veins.
Luckily, I lost the signal in the canyon before I got picked up for DWA (driving while angry). I shouldn't let those guys get to me. I should feel sorry for them because to be them is like the sound a straw makes when the cup is empty.
