Disappointing Start

Today is the debut of the much-heralded Air America Radio network, an attempt to provide a liberal counterweight to conservative talk radio. I was just listening to their RealAudio live feed. I missed the Al Franken show, unfortunately, but I caught a little of a show by a woman called "Randi Rhodes," (I presume no relation to the late Ozzy Osbourne guitar hero). It took only about 30 seconds before I heard a statement as stupid as any you'll find on Rush Limbaugh: she said that the Bush family "dynasty" is just as much a dynasty as the House of Saud. Uhhh....right.

Personally, I think we already have a liberal radio network--it's called NPR, and it's excellent.
