As many of y'all might have noticed, I am a liberal. Therefore, when Air America radio was launched and when we started picking it up in the DFW metroplex, I was hopeful for an entertaining station that distributed information and made valid arguments against specific proposals and statements. Turns out that this is just a station full of the moderate Democrat versions of Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh. Listening to whoever the hell is on tonight at 10:30 pm Central, I heard him refer to Republicans as idiots, America-haters, and tasteless morons more times in a minute than I could count. What the hell happened? I could have sworn that the Democratic Party was the party of common sense and deceny. Have so many sunk so low? Yeah, I think Tom DeLay is a crook. So do the majority of people even in his district now. Why call him such every 5 freaking seconds? And stop complaining saying that George W. Bush "stole" the past two elections. In reality, Al Gore lost the 2000 election because he couldn't even win his home state and John Kerry lost the 2004 election because he had the charisma of a brick. Stop complaining about losing and start thinking about how in the hell we're going to win back Congress next year and the White House in three years. Or are we just going to get stuck in this rut where we become the Chicago Cubs of the US political scene, the loveable losers? Yes, we are in bad shape. Yes, bad policy decisions have been made both by the Republicans in Congress alone and some with the aid of the Democrats. If we started differentiating on the issues, if we started making common sense arguments against stupid proposals, and if we stopped our constant bitching about how unfair the past two elections were boo hoo hoo, maybe we could actually win back some voters and respect. But I guess it's just easier to sink to the level of Rush et al, isn't it?
