~what a lame talk topic- 24, the TV show! Last week, shows who oughta know better, discussed the thing as a political topic- Dave Ross, The Tators, Dori, and many, many more. Conservatives pining: If only we were in such world where all our fears could be realized! With the failures of those in the real world they once held high, and the crumbling of the conservative Utopia they've been predicting since 1994, many are roving with Jack Bauer in a hopeful land where killing a vicious Moslem to save America is always a good idea and nobody whines about it. 24 is all they've got right now- there's such reality in their voices when they talk about it! Like children talking about their imaginary friends. (Meanwhile, Senate Republican hawk John Warner, threw the The Liar In Winter and his surge under the underarmored Humvee today).
~ need to get to Blatherwatch in a hurry? just put 'naked walmart girls' in your google search...
~ On the very day of President Lulu's big speech on Iraq, KIRO had boots on the ground in Washington DC, right? Dave Ross and Ronald Reagan were locked and loaded to do the live anal on the speech after the fact, the even had guests. Wonder why you didn't hear it? BECAUSE AFTER THE SPEECH, THEY WENT LIVE TO GODDAM SNOWSTORM COVERAGE!!!
~ Rumors of his demise were exaggerated by us in October when KIRO replaced Bryan Styble on the overnight with a syndicated truckers show that turned out to be the most unlistened-to radio since the Pam Roach Sex Advice Hour. But then earlier this month, he The Stybloon rose up like a zombie, and was given Saturday and Sunday nights after the David Goldstein Show- from 10p-1a. Obnoxious on-air as usual about this triumph, he was, but now his Saturday night has been given to the ineffable Carl Jeffers. Will his Sunday shift be the next to go? He decried last Sunday that despite he was a First Amendment stalwart, some of these blogs (that would be BlatherWatch, no one else knows who he is) are "Stalinist" and should be stifled. We're hearing he's going to Factoids Anonymous.
~talking about the Styblehead reminds us fondly of Lou Pate, cranky contrarian with the best hair in all of radio who never looked so good until he was gone and we were stuck with the pitiful KIRO overnight parade that followed. We keep reading in All Access that with that magnificent head of hair rippling in the semi-tropical zephyrs, he's doing A-list national fill-in in his bathing suit from his apartment balcón in Miami.
~ Department of Corrections: We said Rev. Ken Hutcherson who raises race horses. We were wrong. He wrote to say: "I do not own race horses, they are cutting horses, quarter horses, for roping and cutting out cattle from the herd." The mega-churched ex-Seahawk preacher began his referendum signature drive to undo civil rights legislation for gays on Monday. (If he doesn't succeed in getting it on the ballot and getting it passed, that'll prove once and for all that God is on the gays' side, and the good reverend will just go away, right?
