This is the type of stuff that makes me want to throw things…
Warren Ballentine, one of black talk radioâ€™s new stars, was on a tear against Senator John McCain as he broadcast from the Greenbriar Mall here last week, blithely dismissing Mr. McCainâ€™s kind words about Senator Barack Obama at the recent N.A.A.C.P. national convention.
â€œHe came out talking about how good of a race Barack Obama was running, and how proud he was of Barack,â€ Mr. Ballentine said. â€œYou know he went back home and said, â€˜I canâ€™t believe I spoke in front of all those Negroes today!â€™ â€
â€œHe was pandering to the crowd, talking about how he felt when Martin Luther King Jr. died,â€ Mr. Ballentine went on. â€œHowever, he didnâ€™t vote for the holiday of Martin Luther King Jr.â€
Hacks, be they liberal or conservative, do nothing but detract from the conversation, and to see the left continuing down the same tired path that Limbaugh paved is depressing to say the very least.
