people are desperate to find some reason to ignore me, which I take as evidence that a lot of what I say strikes too close to home for their comfort
Thats merely the opinion of one who is ignored and is seeking some solace that he or she isnt just a bore or a whacko. I love to engage and dont run from anyone here. However I do ignore one person who is merely a broken record and is as predictable as a bagel.
If you feel that Beck is a "comic genius" Maybe Id agree. He does a parody of a right wing zealot just as good as Colbert. BUT I dont think thats what hes trying to get across. I think he believes his spiehl.
I dont wish him ill, I am just glad that hes gone from a number of radio stations as well. His narcissistic views on everything were a big bore. Now, on several of his stations, theyve got some really good local talent with more educated conservative views that dont require what HAnnity, Beck, Obrien, and Limbo engage in, that being the one sided attaks at liberals and carefully editing calls in to make the host sound better.
Ive listened enough to marvel at how people can be so dumb as to buy much of that, and I wonder why no liberals are allowed to call in and get it on.
