I've always wondered why people consider his schtik to be "honesty".  Yeah,
right!  What's that they say about sincerity...if you can convincingly fake
it, you've got it made.  He's discovered that being a total a**hole on the
air gets ratings and $$$...that's why he does it.  I wonder if he believes
half the stuff he says (except his constant huffing and puffing about how
wonderful and talented he is).

Yes I've listened to his show from time to time (thought I didn't hear his
Columbine comments)...I don't understand his appeal.
