Where is his audience ever going to find another right-wing AM radio blowhard to replace him?

Exactly.  He's so original and unique.  I'm sure no one will be able to take his place.

I've literally never heard the guy's show. I don't think I've ever lived in an area where he was syndicated. The only time I ever hear about him is on Fark.

All I know about him are quotes I've seen attributed to him, which make him sound like one of those AM radio guys who hates poor people. I don't have much patience for shock jocks.

Columns?  Yes ... I'll be writing for Townhall.com.  Be sure to check in there.  I'll Tweet the link every time something appears.Fill-in?  You got it!  I will be Herman Cain's regular fill-in host.  Sean Hannity has said that I'll have the opportunity to fill in for him as well.  There are others, but best not to name them now.I'm joining the folks at
In other words, he's taking his shiat show to 21st century media, and an even more closed-loop audience.  That's actually a good thing - that means he'll be heard by a smaller potential audience of thinking people.

Nabb1: Neil Boortz? "Shock jock"? So you hate a guy whose radio show you've never listened to?


This is the first quote I ran across from him:

BOORTZ: I would like to congratulate Richard Speck. I would -- you know, I would like to congratulate Ted Bundy on sneaking into yet another sorority house and killing another coed. I would like to congratulate Adolf Hitler on his invasion of Poland. I would like to congratulate the -- Al Qaeda for their successful attack on New York City. I would like to congratulate the Ansar al-Sharia crowd over there in Benghazi for their successful assault on our consulate.

Congratulate Barack Obama? I'm sorry, Herman, love you but you can take that and stick in that phony damn cowboy hat of yours.


That sounds like something Michael Savage would say. It's aggressively stupid and outrageous for the sake of being outrageous. Sounds like shock jock material to me.

Also, it was in response to Herman Cain congratulating Barack Obama on the 2012 election. Sounds like they've patched things up now that Boortz is going to be his new fill-in host.

I don't give political radio show hosts much benefit of the doubt I'm afraid. They haven't earned it as a profession. They are somewhere between publishers and tow truck drivers in the asshole continuum.

I don't know what the hell you have against tow truck drivers, they're not the ones that create parking laws. Plus, if you've ever broken down on the side of the road, you'd be pretty fng happy to see a tow truck driver.

I've never met a tow truck driver who wasn't an asshole. It doesn't have anything to do with what I think of traffic laws or whether I've been towed before.

It's a profession that breeds assholism because of the nature of the relationship between them and car owners. When you're dealing with a tow truck driver you are, by definition, f*cked. Your fault, someone else's fault...doesn't matter. They offer something no one else can provide to someone who literally cannot go anywhere.

It's a recipe for asshole.

Huh.  Most of my experiences with tow truck drivers have been largely positive.  I mean, considering the situation of needing a tow and all that.  Well, there was one guy who was a raging asshole, so I complained to AAA about it later.  They said I wasn't the first complaint they had gotten about him and they were probably going to drop him from their list.

Many years ago, when I first graduated from college, I was offered a position as a board op at a local radio station. The catch was, it was December and they needed me to work on Christmas and I didn't want to. So I turned it down.
After further research, I discovered that the show they wanted me to work on was Neal Boortz. Best decision I ever made.

I should say that I realize it's probably a difficult job and I'm sure they deal with a lot of assholes themselves. But my take on tow truck drivers is based on the "absolute power corrupts absolutely" maxim, and you never have more power over another human being than when they are stuck someplace and you're their only hope.

I have never dealt with a tow truck driver who was an asshole. Probably because every time I interacted with them, I didn't blame them for the negative situation I found myself in.

I think you should focus on how you treat people when you're stressed, and how you treat people who do a job you consider "beneath you". The true measure of someone's courtesy isn't how they treat someone of equal social or professional importance, or how they treat people when they are in a good mood, it's how they treat people in the worst of times.

I've had good experiences with them, but I've only needed them when my car broke down. I suspect that if I dealt with them over a parking violation or a rep, it'd be different.

Here's a fun fact. Here in Colorado, a chop shop operated as a legitimate towing company for *years* before anyone caught on. The public don't question why a car is being towed and don't pay attention. If they hadn't been lazy and tried to sell custom parts from a stolen car, they'd probably still be operating.
