I heard Howie Carr on WCRN play "Happy Days are Here Again" after the news
Wednesday afternoon, in obvious reference to Scott Brown winning. I
thought it was distasteful.
I've never listened to Howie Carr, nor do I know his political leanings,
but I assume now he's right-leaning. What is it about those on the right
that make them so nasty? I don't think left-leaners would do such a thing.
Or maybe it's just the disintegration of meaningful political talk on the
radio, where it is now, indeed, just entertainment.
Nasty? Playing Happy Days Are Here Again is nasty?
I did not consider being glad over your candidate winning nasty. He is
doing talk radio not news reporting, he is allowed to have opinions and
feelings. He doesn't have to be neutral.
Being happy does not mean he doesn't offer meaningful talk. But as you
said, you never listened to him.
(Shaking my head)
