    What, exactly, are you hoping to achieve by posting the almost two year old nonsensical rantings of a radio host?

    Well the Economist has compared Osama Bin Laden and Gringrich, so depending one what has been said its not necessarily that controversial.

    The Economist is another left-wing loony rag hardly fit for lining birdcages.

    LOL. I didn't realise the British aristocracy were "left-wing loonies"...

    Of course. Sadly, this nonsense appears to the height of political discourse in the USA at the moment.


    If you think that The Economist is a "left-wing loony rag" then you really are way out there in the extremities of the political right.

    And Democrats are Nazis if the right wing talk show hosts are to be believed.

    What's your point?

    Who the hell is Mike Malloy?

    Sorry to disappoint you, perfseeker, but some of us do not rely on talk radio for our information.

    I love me some Mike Malloy.

    But he is prone to hyperbole.

    Very entertaining though.

    If you've never heard him before, I definitely recommend tuning into his radio program.

    Mike's a liberal talk show host.

    But more than that, he's the angry grandfather of liberal talk shows.

    He's old... he's seen it all... and dammit, he's not going to pull any punches.

    He's no more insane than Beck, Limbaugh or Savage.

    It's just unexpected to hear that kind of rhetoric from the left, while we're totally numb to it coming from the right.

    Somehow I don't think he has quite the same number of die hard followers.....

    What does that have anything to do with it?

    If Beck had said that Democrats are domestic terrorists, you and half the people that post here would have fallen down foaming at the mouth with rage over it.

    Because it is dangerous culture wars rhetoric to any sized audience. Yet alone one the size of becks.

    Not so much foaming at the mouth than laughing at the ridiculousness of political discourse in the US.

    I think the number of followers these people have is certainly representative of how many people believe the crap they say, and showcases the impact they can have on the public.

    I'm a pretty well informed and connected liberal, and I've never heard of that guy. Meanwhile millions of Americans are soaking up the words of Beck and Limbaugh, taking what they have to say to heart.

    That's so untrue and unfair. Just because Dems can't even be efficient domestic terrorists doesn't mean they aren't domestic terrorists too.

    I'm with ucf on this one. There have been too many posts lambasting Beck when he's called us "terrorists" to deny it.

    That's why I love Mike Malloy so much. He's visceral political payback to a party that for decades has thrown mud in our eye while we kept trying to play nice.

    He's exactly what we need more of... liberals with balls who are unafraid to get on the conservative's level.

    Rock on my radio bad-boy!
