Air America: Gone Broke

Air America is now broke! The filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection today.

Sorry, I'm having a hard time keeping from snickering about this whole thing. Air America was supposed to be the medium that would revolutionize liberalism. They thought Al Franken would be the left leaning Rush Limbaugh.

What they didn't realize was that when Limbaugh gets on the air he has fun. He entertains the listeners. And he also uses specific logical arguments to get his serious points across. When Al Franken gets on the air or writes books, he personally insults those that he disagrees with. Just take a look at his first book called "Rush Limbaugh is a Big, Fat Idiot". He didn't present any counterpoints to the Conservative ideas, he didn't present any substantive points to support liberalism. He simply got on the air or behind a keyboard and launched into nothing but insults. And that may be funny for a while. But it gets old.
