I’ve decided that, even with Randi Rhodes, Nova M is providing lesser stuff than is Air America. Just compare the websites for listener interaction and see the difference. Aside from Randi, who presently is doing alright, the only host they have is Mike Malloy, whom I checked up on (I’ve been listening mostly to music, lately), to discover that he is doing a real-life version of Bailey in ‘The Corbomite Maneuver’, except as a senior citizen. (This is Star Trek stuff; Bailey froze in a sort of battle, and compensated for his failure with verbal aggression. But Bailey was supposed to be a young adult promoted too quickly, not a senior citizen.)
Plus, they have Malloy reading essays written by one of their advertisers, and these essays are lengthy and really suck. When I signed up I didn’t sign up for crap written by some shmoe who sells coffee by mail.
So, I have canceled the Nova M podcast service.
Didn’t I say (maybe it was in someone else’s LJ) that McCain was going to pick Dan Quayle to be his running mate? Metaphorically, at least, he did! :)
(A surprise choice of a young person favored by the Jesus Freaks but who leaves the majority scratching their heads and saying "What?" Well, actually this time we can figure some of the angles, but the angles are mirages—for instance the idea that more than three Hillary supporters will vote for the woman VP.)
Dick Cheney for Secretary of Defense.
