Monday Morning Quarterback

By Kathy Malloy

It's Groundhog Day 2015! That means we get to enjoy not only six more weeks of winter -- but six more years of these new flying monkey senators -- Tom Cotton, Cory Gardner, Shelly Moore Capito, Thom Tillis, Mike Rounds, Steve Daines, David Perdue, and the Grande Dame of them all -- Joni Ernst!

Okay -- are we all recovered from the Superbowl madness? Relived the ridiculous final five minutes for the last time? Marveled at the suspected cost of the insurance policy that allowed Katy Perry to hang from a giant drone? Pondered the astronomical amount of advertising revenue that corporations poured into the coveted airtime? $8 million a minute. Hell, even the Koch brothers don't make that kinda of moolah.

These neo-gladiators are paid billions to entertain us, why shouldn't the corprocats get their shot at exploitation, too?

Imagine the impact those hundreds of millions of dollars could have on research into alternative energy sources, or cancer research, or funding new schools or scholarships for needed students, or any dozen of enterprises that don't involve manipulating the captive consumers into buying more beer, more cars, more Doritos, or Pizza Hut, or any other frankenfood product.

But then it wouldn't be America, would it?

Groundhog Day -- Punxsutawney Phil Sees Shadow; 6 More Weeks of Winter

And it's Groundhog Day 2015! That means we get to enjoy not only six more weeks of winter -- but six more years of these new flying monkey senators -- Tom Cotton, Cory Gardner, Shelly Moore Capito, Thom Tillis, Mike Rounds, Steve Daines, David Perdue, and the Grande Dame of them all -- Joni Ernst!

God help us.

Submitters Bio:
Kathy never expected a career in radio as a talk show producer. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Kathy was completing her nursing degree when in 2001 - in an emergency - she was asked to fill in as the producer of Mike's program. Within a few weeks she knew she'd found more than a temporary job. Since that beginning, Kathy has steadily grown more comfortable behind the control console, editing, engineering, and assisting in topic selection for the program while also retaining a fairly sizeable chunk of her sanity. Oh, and did we mention the utter (joyful) chaos of raising a daughter who, for some odd reason, only stops talking when she's asleep. Strange, that.



A life-long "talk radio junkie," Kathy takes her job with all the seriousness required, and thoroughly enjoys producing a talk show that's intelligent, factual, informative, and most of all entertaining. She takes great pride in -- and has great fun with -- the two biggest joys in her life: Their daughter Molly, and producing one of the most dynamic talk programs in radio.
