AAR fans discuss AAR in strictest confidence

Wouldn't it be nice if there was a special place that "liberals" could go to in order to discuss all the failings of Air America, without having to worry about AAR anti-fans finding out about it? Well, here's that very special place:

...Half the ads I have heard on the several different AAR stations I've listened to over the past several years have sounded like they were made by two amateurs with a tape recorder and an old sound effects record...

...Those Ovaltine ads are driving me crazy...

...I am not a fan of Franken and I can tolerate Randi in spells...

...Al is mailing it in! He doesn't even sound like he is interested in what he is doing anymore. Who knows what his salary could do to help sustain the network...

...air america struggles because air america sucks... by and large AA comes across as just so much suburban pseudo-prog kvetching, short on courage and long on verbiage. a fucking bore, in other words...

...I felt that way too and never quite thought of it in that context- that these AAR hosts were all part of a sort of elite club along with their regular listeners and everyone else was not worthy- like Franken's constant '...who is a personal friend of mine' bullshit about every famous person he discusses as if that somehow gives him street cred. It really pushes that whole liberal elitist stereotype well...

...I first tuned in wanting to like it, to love it. I wanted to believe. But all I felt was pandered to, with dumbed-down, condescending dribblings from self-worshipping monomaniacs. If they can't sell to me, square in the middle of their target demo, they sure as fuck can't sell to John Q. Conservative Sheep in Arkansas...

"John Q. Conservative sheep in Arkansas", and you complain about liberal elitist stereotypes? You write as a liberal elitist for heavens sake! Until liberals start to talk directly to John Q. Conservative instead of talking down to people, you people are doomed to remain a collective joke and out of power and I say this a former liberal who became sick of how liberals deal in such condescending tones with the majority of Americans. Wise up!
