Comments by Republican senators on Thursday suggested that they were feeling the heat from conservative critics of the bill, who object to provisions offering legal status. The Republican whip, Trent Lott of Mississippi, who supports the bill, said: “Talk radio is running America. We have to deal with that problem.”Mr. Lott, talk radio IS AMERICA!! The reason that radio programs like Rush, Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Glenn Beck, etc. are so popular is because they know what the issues really are, and they know what the issues mean, and they know how to address the issues. The strange thing is, I don't hear a lot of politicians complaining about how vulgar and hateful the left side of the blogosphere is. But we hear ALL THE TIME about how conservative talk radio is hateful, and bitter, and angry. Uh, folks, take a look at the comment section on just about any left-wing blog (Daily Kos, Democratic Underground, Huffington Post), and try to get through the first 10 posts without being up to your neck in the f-word (and I don't mean the Ann Coulter/John Edwards/Isaiah Washington f-word).
We have to be careful about letting talk radio run America, but we don't have to worry so much about left-wing bloggers running America. Can you say "Dick (Turban) Durbin?" So, we have to discount anybody who uses their brain to look at the issue (and one guy who can do it with half his brain tied behind his back, just to make it fair), but we can let the lefty loonies that run the zoo that is dKos, Dummie Underwear, and PuffHo run the show. Yeah, brilliant idea!!
Uh, Mr. Lott, Mr. President, etc, here's a hint: Ted Kennedy does NOT have the best interests of this country in his heart. He only has his own best interests (and Happy Hour) in his heart. But, go ahead, sell this ocuntry down the river (or, as it were, across the Rio Grande River), and jump on his bandwagon.
How can you, the average American, help? Call your Senator, Congressman, etc. E-mail, send letters, let them know that next time they're up for re-election, let them know that they are also up for REMOVAL FROM OFFICE!
