His last three big corporate advertisers are Macy's, Staples and Delta? Macy's??? I was thinking more along the lines of Wal-Mart, NASCAR and Coors.

Where did I say that? Christ, but you're a partisan, narrow-minded dweeb.

No, I don't listen to Sly because he's an obnoxious talk shock-jock, and not worthy of my time. Not nearly as bad as McKenna, but in the same league.

This topic is about boycotting a radio station because one of its personalities "has really gone over the line" with perceived offensiveness. I'm called a "a partisan, narrow-minded dweeb" by ilikebeans but obviously the partisan narrow-mindedness is characteristic of those here who condemn Rush Limbaugh and promote an economic boycott against him and stations who carry his show while giving Sly in the Morning a pass. How is that not blatant hypocrisy?

Thank you. I stand corrected. This topic is about boycotting a radio station's sponsors of a particular show because one of its personalities "has really gone over the line" with perceived offensiveness. I'm called a "a partisan, narrow-minded dweeb" by ilikebeans but obviously the partisan narrow-mindedness is characteristic of those here who condemn Rush Limbaugh and promote an economic boycott against him and the sponsors of his show while giving Sly in the Morning a pass.

Actually, I'm calling you a narrow-minded partisan because of your right-wing ignorance included with nearly every post. But really, this is no exception.

We're talking about Rush, and you go, "OH OH OH but what about this other, local jock?" as if we care. Naturally, you're doing this because Sly is perceived to be "liberal".

No one gives a shit about Sly. Go ahead and start a boycott. I don't listen to his station or his show, my friends and acquaintances don't, and to be honest, I wasn't sure he was still on the air until you mentioned him. I don't see him quoted in local media, and I don't hear local progressive pundits using him for a reference.

The reason we're talking about Rush Limbaugh is his large, national audience of fans too stupid to realize that the diarrhea spewing from his upper orifice has little to nothing to do with truth or morality. He has a decades-long history of dumbing down the state of political discourse in this country to the point where Fox News can come along and bill themselves as "fair and balanced", and where national Republican leaders practically lick his boots in reverence.

His very existence on our public airwaves reduces our country's collective IQ year after year. I will rejoice the day he is off the air, for whatever reason.

When you have top elected officials kow-towing to Sly's opinions, let me know. I'll happily join your boycott.
