Beantown Blasts Cavanaugh Over Romney, Obama and John Kerry's Ghost*

|

Somebody should give the president a whip and a chair.

In a great leap forward for Marconi-set technology, Boston's WRKO (AM 680) makes its guest appearances available in recorded form on the positronic computerwebs. 

That means my appearance the other day with Reason campaign correspondent Garrett Quinn is available for your listening pleasure. 

We talked about Mitt Romney's prospects against Barack Obama in the upcoming presidential election. 

In another proof that you never know what part of anything you write will catch people's attention, my throwaway observation that this year's Republicans are in a position similar to that of 2004's Democrats (rejecting candidates who actually move their hearts in favor of one they don't care for but believe will be electable) turns out to be what got Boston fired up. WRKO's listeners spent most of the air time making the point (with which I agree) that John Kerry and Mitt Romney are actually pretty dissimilar people. (That said, why can't all radio shows have live call-in? It's the best thing about radio.)

You can listen here, and the audio is embedded below.

Warning: Boston accents dead ahead…

Watch this at WRKO

* Sticklers will claim that John Kerry cannot be a ghost because he is not yet dead, but this is not correct. He can't be a ghost because he has no soul.

  2. And Ron Paul can’t be President because he has no chance. And he’s a racist sack of shit with fake eyebrows.

    1. You had me at “fake eyebrows.” Groucho Marx for President!

    2. Gee, Max, maybe your one-note message is getting tired.
      And it doesn’t help that it’s a lie.

      1. I’m not sure even Max believes it anymore. He’s just phoning them in now.

        1. I’m not sure Max ever believed it. Max is a worn-out lefty who would lie at every opportunity for any chance to support his tired ‘social theories’.
          Ends/means; you know. Max is just less verbose than shithead.

          1. He’s not even that. He’s just a Ron Paul griefer twat who’s life is so empty that he ejaculates as soon as he sees a nice clean thread to shit in.

            1. Max/Edward has been around for years and years. He’s kept this shit up since at least 2007. Whatever else you want to say about him, at least he’s dedicated…to having ragegasms over Ron Paul.

      The “racist” Ron Paul in his “racist” medical practice, where he showed “racism” by offering free medical care to blacks too poor to afford his “racist” services.

      1. Well now we have proof!

        1. Yeah, but what has he done for us lately?

      2. Ron Paul published a racist, homphobic newsletter for years and made lots of money doing it. He has never adequately explained why he did this. It doesn’t really matter because he has no chance of winning the nomination, and he knows it even if you zombie dimwits don’t.

    4. Max is probably just a regular with a grudge for something that happened at the ’88 Libertarian Party convention. Let it go, grandpa!

      1. Republican Ron Paul came in and took our jerbs. He took our jerbs!

  3. False.

    I have it on good authority that John Kerry is a secret Canadian, supplying the beady-eyed northern hordes with inherited ketchup for their Kraft dinners. And therefore has no soul.

  4. * Sticklers will claim that John Kerry cannot be a ghost because he is not yet dead, but this is not correct. He can’t be a ghost because he has no soul.

    Incorrect Marge! Kerry can’t be a ghost because he’s already Frankenstein.

  5. Warning: Boston accents dead ahead…

    Well, if you don’t want us to listen to it, Tim, you should just come out and say that.

    1. They should run subtitles. Like The History Channel does on that gator hunting show where everyone speaks English.

      1. FACK YOU YOU FACKIN QUEAAH! WE GOT BETTAH FACKIN RADIO THAN YOU FACKIN QUEAHS IN THE WEST COAST!! NO ONE DENIES THIS!!

        RAWMNEY IS REMEMBAHD FOR ALL THAT FACKIN CONSTRUCTION THAT KEPT TAWMMY OUT OF JAIL! WE LOVE THAT FACKIN QUEAH!!

        1. I, ah, used to like, ah, drinking Scotch and drowning young women in Oldsmobiles.

        2. FACKIN QUEAH

          Nice band name.

        3. Tman, I can tell you’ve spent time in . . . Somerville?

  9. This is my first time i visit here. I found so many entertaining stuff in your blog, especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the leisure here! Keep up the good work

  10. Hey bro links are 404’ing

  11. (rejecting candidates who actually move their hearts in favor of one they don’t care for

    And just where is this mysterious heart moving candidate, I wonder?

    1. Santorum. Santorum moves their hearts.

      No one ever said their hearts weren’t retarded.

      1. Ah, but can Santorum move their bowels?

      2. I don’t see any real enthusiasm for Santorum. He’s just the latest (and last) non-Romney.

  12. Well, look who’s wicked retahded now.

    1. Fucking retarded.

  13. (That said, why can’t all radio shows have live call-in? It’s the best thing about radio.)

    Sarcasm Tim? I find myself reaching for the dial every time a cringe inducing caller goes off on an insane tangent during their call-in.

  14. lol, they are all corrupt as the day is long lol.
