MIKE GALLAGHER IN CORNING
I've listened to Mike on occasion, but his show coincides with my blog prep time, and trying to listen to the radio while blogging/writing is not one of my options. (The only exception I make is Rush. I can listen to him while posting my blog but not while writing.) Also, while I agree with Mike on many issues, his personality can get in the way. All that aside, I have to admit that I was mildly excited when I heard that he would be doing his show from Centerway Square in downtown Corning, NY. He's on his book tour: Surrounded By Idiots: Fighting Liberal Lunacy In America.
I tuned in this morning for a few minutes and heard him talking about Her Royal C and today's USA Today article, Can Hillary be elected commander in chief? Mike was warning that it is possible. Here in Corning, which is supposedly so conservative, I've spoken with one local prominent elected Republican official who told me that he will vote for her.
Because she's nice.
So what? Why would you vote for her?
Because she brings home the pork to this town
I reminded him that that same money was ripped out of his pocket, but he didn't seem to care. And that's a problem with voters: They bitch about the confiscatory taxes yet still demand that their elected officials bring home the pork. Never mind that NY State is fraught with mega fraud and abuse, and that the return on their tax dollar is pathetic. All some voters care about is getting theirs. Mike is right; Hillary can be elected president. The same Hillary who kissed Suha Arafat can be elected president. I'm not saying she will be, but I do acknowledge the possibilty.
Talk radio voice set to visit Crystal City
Gallagher's visit to Corning, co-sponsored by the Gaffer District Business Association, is part of a nation-wide tour to promote his new book, "Surrounded by Idiots, Fighting Liberal Lunacy in America."
Following the show and an invite-only luncheon with local business leaders, Gallagher will sign copies of his new book from 1:30-4 p.m. in Centerway Square. Watkins Glen retailer Story-lines Book-store will be on hand, selling copies for $24.95.
Republicans outnumber Democrats in the city 2,708 to 2,060.
8 Hillary in 2008?: When you consider that John F. Kerry - to my mind a walking disaster as a candidate and as a human being - polled 48% of the vote, it’s something worth concern on our part.
