Al Franken signed a two-year extension with Air America Radio, putting him on the network through 2006.

I listen to his show often on XM Radio. Some of the comedy is forced -- no one drills a humorous premise into the ground deeper than a Saturday Night Live writer -- but I can't pass up the chance to hear genuine liberal voices on the air like Paul Krugman, David Sirota, Amy Sullivan, and Joe Conason.

I wish I could find a clip of Franken's phone interview Monday with weblogger Chris Bowers, publisher of MyDD. When a space heater in Bowers' house kept making a sickly humming sound, Franken and co-host Katherine Lanpher became convinced that Bowers had a person trussed up and gagged, moaning like the Gimp in Pulp Fiction.

Maybe if you didn't listen to biased commentators you would have more respect for our President.

Yeah, no kidding. That's totally your problem, Rogers. What, was Rush not on?

I counted once, and Rush Limbaugh was on four different stations within range of St. Augustine. Did you know that John Kerry's Vietnam medals of valor were awarded by the Viet Cong?
