TODAY AT noon, and then again at 3:00 p.m., after listening to right wing radio for 20 years, I get to tune in to finally hear what I wrote about in my book. The last gasp of a dying influence. It’s over, even if the medium lives on. But finally, at long last, new-media has eclipsed right wing radio as a force.
The fact free, hate filled, patriarchal hierarchy has been smashed to smithereens, with all that’s left to keeping moving FORWARD.
I use that word as a tribute to Barack Obama, David Plouffe, David Axelrod, Jim Messina and all of the Obama loyalists, Obamabots, fans, and die hard Obama partisans — not to be confused with progressive Democrats — who planned and executed the greatest political victory in United States history.
Radio will live on and so will the hate mongers, but they don’t have any power anymore. Whether Republicans can seize this day to remake themselves is another story, especially with the House still in their thrall and Senator Mitch McConnell threatened by them in Kentucky.
But that’s their problem, because the rest of this country has inched FORWARD.
The right wing noise machine was put down unmercifully on Election Day and America is a better country for it.
