You'll be missed.

Not.

I can't believe anyone gives a flying rat's ass about the ins and outs of Neal Boortz's career enough to read that tome.

Could never really listen to Boortz but I have met him quite a few times at the airport. We fly out of the same local airport (PDK). Nice enough guy and a real advocate for small plane owners which we could use more of.

Otherwise he's just confusing on the air.. Seemed to be playing the Hannity card the last few times I listened to him for any period of time. Like he was grasping on radical repubtardism for the fan-base or something.

I'd snark him, but insulting the mentally handicapped is wrong.

Fun in the sense that it will be filled with people posting "Who the f*ck is Neal Boortz?"

This is the equivalent of a career minor-leaguer retiring from the AAA Omaha Royals affiliate after blowing out his knee while sliding on the tarp during a rain delay. There'll be a presentation of a bronze plaque and maybe even nickel hot dogs for the kids, but I sincerely doubt 99.9% of the population even knows who this guy is.

The only reason I know Boortz is I think he's the dude who, in the run-up to Hurricane Katrina, claimed the disastrous weather forecasts were a plot by a cabal of liberal meteorologists for some opaque, nefarious reason, although to be fair I may be confusing him with some other cookie-cutter, "grinds-my-gears" AM radio crank.

An unnecessarily long swan song worthy of Shatner.

I do admit not listening all that much to Boortz, but what I heard of him sounded like the whole "I'll talk about how I'm an independent but 95% of my criticism will be of the Democratic Party" schtick.

Ok, now we know whom to hold responsible.

Aw. I liked Neal. He was an asshole, but he made me laugh now and then.

No, but I'd like to meet the guy even if he's an Aggie.

(Need to meet up with Nabb1 for beers too for that matter)

I'm going to miss that piece of f*ck, like a shin misses a coffee table.

The only time I listened to him, he said that Katrina wasn't going to be a big deal, and the gub'mint was just being alarmist.
/f*cks that guy with rusty dildos

Heard the name but don't know who he is really. Some rightwing nutsac, if memory serves.

I'll always remember him as the farkwit that made FairTax palatable to marginally informed idiots.

Shiat, 3 more are gonna sprout up in his place now.
 
2012-06-04 03:11:11 PM  
I'm immediately calling bullshiat. This is a blatant "Vote Romney" gimmick.

Romney wins "Well, I need to tell everyone how awesome things are gonna be"

Obama wins "OMG I have to get the truth out there still!"

generally agree......from context of this thread it appears he is a rightwing nutsack but all i know about Boortz is he's a political blogger of some repute.

so in closing, uhh.......farewell, dude i don't know.
 
2012-06-04 03:19:57 PM  
You guys are ridiculous. He is a libertarian that disagrees with the GOP on....stuff.

I mean, how can you people get mad at a self-described Libertarian that hates the federal government when all he does is support the Iraq war and the Patriot Act?
 
2012-06-04 03:21:36 PM  
Goodbye f**king asshole. Welcome the new kneegrow.

I have to admit I basically lost all respect for him back during the runup to the Iraq war. He had on some bigwig in the Libertarian party and just seemed utterly unable to grasp the idea that a LP member didn't support the Iraq War.

It kept going around and around- the LP dude commenting about a lack of data, foreign entanglements, the enormous expense and Boortz was just completely lost. He kept going back to standard Bush talking points about the clear danger, low costs, easy victory, etc. It was clear he had no grasp at all of Libertarian principles

Man, why do you have to taunt us like that? That's like when a dad comes home and tells his kids "I would have brought ice cream if I hadn't gotten stuck late at the office."
