"like ralph was a pinto and randi rear-ended him"

Titular quote from liberal blogger Skippy. Other posts here, here, and here.

Other blogospheric reaction: Wonkette (2), Hit & Run 1 and 2, John Kerry's blog, Balloon Juice, Crooked Timber, liberal Kevin Drum can't get a signal in deep behind the Orange Curtain, liberal media apologist Pandagon, Phelps has been converted, Begging to Differ has a review and it's not favorable, "[hitherto conservative] Talk radio is a format whose primary job is to disseminate disinformation to the faithful", Lonewacko starting the "displacing Minority Voices" meme since carried forward by Insty, a professional ventriloquist has a review and interesting links, "a liberal alternative to the usual hate-mongering." Finally, Crysta agrees with AA but finds it a bit dry.

UPDATE: Air America's target audience responds: "they made a rush limb song..." Many more comments followed, some semi-coherent.

UPDATE 2: Byte Back doesn't get Rush's schtick. JewView thinks it's MOR.

UPDATE 3: Alert to Finnish readers! Please click here and send me a rush translation.

UPDATE 4: Expat Yank compares it to the Beeb: "in comparison to the BBC, Air America Radio would probably appear a tad conservative."

Travelling Shoes says: DOA.

A DJ has background info on their SF outlet. (Via here).

No thanks for the link. Dorko.

You are not fact checking or monitoring Air America. You are indeed boring America.

Fact checking could indeed be useful as I'm sure not everything out of every hosts' mouth is 100 percent accurate.

Unlike say most of Rush's listeners who lick up the "schtick" like it was manna.

Monitoring Air America Radio [TM] so you don't have to.
