What it is, is a disgrace, and it is a travesty to trivialize it as "entertainment".
The unlettered, humorless slobs talking spit on low-brow, rightwing radio are not entertainment. They are an ugly spectacle. There is a difference.
Anyone who has seen traffic slow to a crawl as the motorists gawk at the spectacle of bleeding and broken bodies in the immediate aftermath of adeadlytraffic wreck understands that difference.
It is not subtle. Neither is the radio cancer eating away at the civic body of the United States.
These lowlifes like to bray on about how they want to "take the country back" (presumably from their black president and his family).
How's this for an idea. How 'bout anti-hate Americans take back their radio stations !
