My radio must have been broken that day.  I too find AA way too
negative...the left wing equivalent of a Savage, etc.  The constant Bush
bashing DOES get old after a while.  I will admit that I don't listen to
AA (Savage either for that matter) very often, or for very long...I find
it annoying and I'm not a masochist.

I considerd the Clinton bashing of the 90s just as annoying and tedious as
Bush bashing.  Negativity is negativity no matter who it's directed at.

Maybe "unpatriotic" is a bit strong, but you've got to admit that Franken
and his ilk tend to be of the "blame America first" mindset.
