absolutely SUCKS

i listened to part of NPR's coverage of tomorrow's election in Wisconsin on my way home from work. as i so often do, i slammed in the CD in disgust before it was over. i listened longer than usual because i wanted to know if they would report on walker's legal problems. this is what i heard:

- walker is ahead in the polls (by how much, or how little you bastards?! they didn't say)
- if walker wins it's BIG BIG trouble for democrats and unions
- if walker wins it's trouble for the obama campaign
- if walker wins romney will be all over WI
- because of their fears about all of the above, top democrats in the state tried to head off the recall; they didn't want it to happen.

and that was it for me. i'm starting to think that NPR's adherence to false equivalencies has mutated into outright advocacy for republicans. it is really starting to make me sick.

1. Yep

I felt EXACTLY the same way. Had to just turn it off

Tomorrow night is gonna be sweet. Governor Scott Walker will keep his job and the DUmp will implode.
I may not lock my doors while sitting at a red light and a black man is near, but I sure as hell grab on tight to my wallet when any democrats are close by.

NPR may be completely populated with Leftist tools, but even they recognize that taking a boatride up de Nile will make them look like complete idiots and savage whatever shreds of credibility they still have.

DUmmie should look on the DUmmie bright side...NPR is funded in large part by tax dollars robbed from republicans.

I would give a lot to find out what CD the red-faced primitive jammed into his radio.

I was listening to the same broadcast.  Immediately after the DUmmies turned off their radios, NPR interviewed firefighters (because nobody would attack firefighters, right?) who were complaining about having to contribute to their own pension funds and making a house payment or choosing between sending their kids to a community college for a couple of years instead of the University of Wisconsin.  The dollar amount the poor, downtrodden firefighter claimed put him in the poorhouse?  $900 a year.

I hope Walker mops the floor with Barrett.  This is just stupid.

More mud slinging.  I think the WI AG is investigating an individual who may or may not have been working for Walker when he may or may not have done something illegal.  They are only releasing enough info so they can make smoke/fire charges against Walker.

I've seen that.

You should've put Rush on, he was in a happy mood, heck, he's always in a happy mood when talking about politics.

Yes, it will.
That little flyer they put out, is going to bite them right square in the ass.
They even managed to PO the DUmpmonkeys for that piece of stupidity.

Some (probably most) days it must really suck to be DUmmies with their radio issues.

They don't like Armed Forces Radio because AFRN has Rush, even though they are not in the military and don't listen to AFRN, and now NPR is airing stuff they don't want to hear.

One wonders why they don't use the on/off switches so they don't have to listen to the stuff that offends them.  Or change the station.
This too shall pass.

They don't know how.  They either have someone else change the channel for them, or they just listen to the channel the radio was set to when they got the car.

I think a lot of times they just listen to it to find something to complain about.

It's not hard for DUmmies to find something to complain about.

They'd complain about the morning dew getting their feet wet, the sun coming up in the morning, and water being wet.
