Carol Platt Liebau: An Acquired Taste

An Acquired Taste

Mary Katherine Ham spent a week listening to Radio America, and offers some salient observations.

Radio America is something of an acquired taste. At first, it's somewhat shocking to realize that there are people out there who actually buy into a lot of what's spewed on the network. But after a while, listening becomes entertaining and inspiriting, especially for a conservative. That's because everyone on Air America always sounds so unhappy about everything -- notably absent are the happy warriors like Rush Limbaugh or Hugh Hewitt.

Eventually, one starts to feel very confident about the prospect of ultimate conservative political victory, because Americans are, by and large, an optimistic people -- and they don't resonate with the kind of downbeat snideness and discontent that occupies a lot of Radio America's airtime.

You are correct, one can listen to Radio America with bemusement, wonderment, amazement, and anticipation. You think to yourself, maybe they will come up with something new. But no, it's like a broken record, "Bush lied. Bush lied. Bush lied." I've often wondered, did they hate him before he became President? Clinton lied all the time but I never hated him. As one of his own team members said, "Clinton is a very good liar." So I say, if lying is grounds for hate, where was the left wing hate when the Clintons were in the White House?

Katherine lasted, basically, a whole week longer than my wife and I did back last September. We attempted listening for a whole hour, but escaped the misery after 36 minutes.
