One Hand Clapping

Air America, the liberal radio network which was created to knock Rush Limbaugh off the air, was pronounced dead on Thursday after a long, hard-fought battle against reality.

For six years, Air America's hosts (including now-senator Al Franken) spewed bile and left-wing propaganda, alienating many listeners and entertaining virtually no one.

The radio network had terrible financial problems as advertisers and audiences fled, with workers and "talent" sometimes being paid with checks that bounced. Bankruptcies and lawsuits flew for years, until the network finally drew its last, angry breath.

Air America's last day is today, leaving a stunned broadcast industry asking itself one haunting question: "Who even knew those idiots were still on the air?!"

That picture of Al Franken - brilliant! Wouldn't it be great if other blogs would use it every time they referenced Al Franken? Make it the symbol of today's Democrat party.

I'm a recent follower of your cartoon - I must commend you for your ability to generate "spot-on" humor so consistently - day after day.

Poor Err America! I hear they were just one "charity defrauding" away from making payroll!
