They got nobody to blame but John and Ken - wow
Seriously, this is what it has come down to. John and Ken, hosts of KFI radio's daytime show in L.A. are making politicians put up or shut up by - gasp - holding them responsible to the taxpayers for pro-tax moves. Apparently they've irked the republicans who can't seem to get right what it is their party stands for. We're talking about the fools who are going to jump across the aisle to support Jerry Brown's $60 billion tax increase (works out to about $5,000 per family!) and a bunch of Cali articles came out slamming the duo. CalWatchDog has a nice piece that discusses the issue. What we're finding is that all higher ups were thinking John and Ken were simplistic right-wing shock jocks with no fortitude, credibility or social reform know-how, and they have proven those dumbshits wrong time and time again.
John and Ken are pissing people off with their logic and the truth hurts, sometimes. There are a lot of issues I've personally disagreed over time, but more often then not, they really are working for the greater good and helping make aware by their keen ability to read-between-the-lines.
Will assemblyman Katcho Achadjian, Sen. Tom Harmon, Assemblyman Paul Cook, Sen. Bob Huff, Sen. Sam Blakeslee, Sen. Anthony Cannella, Sen. Tom Berryhill, Sen. Bill Emmerson, Assemblyman Bill Berryhill and Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen sign a no-tax pledge to avoid having their skulls pierced by sharp-ended mallets?
John and Ken are smart and they don't care if you are a dumb lefty, or dumb repub., they care about emitting their version of the truth and when it comes to their political pontifications, they are spot-on most of the time.
Yeah, there are alternatives, JK don't OWN the airwaves entirely (they do in the daytime here in L.A.), there are guys like Chris Reed. Check out Chris Reed's show on a.m. 600 KOGO on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and listen live here, or take a view of this video he did in late 2010. It's great to have these guys running their mouths on the airwaves because otherwise we'd be left with all the political banter and legal bullshit that can be difficult to decipher and impossible to spread in such an effective, sprawling manner.
