Podcast – Barack Obama
In his July 20 podcast Illinois Senator Barack Obama announced he and some other senators have introduced legislation (The Fuel Economy Reform Act of 2006) to increase automobile fuel efficiency. I have no sense that this will fix anything but it certainly is about time something like this came up in the US Senate. Read the press release here.
Interesting, Senator Obama begins his podcast with – “the consensus among scientists at least, if not politicians, is that we are facing a significant environmental crisis when it comes to global warming.” The press release only mentions warming in passing at the end. I guess the co-sponsors are some of those non-consenting politicians he’s talking about.
Podcast – Bill O’Reilly The Radio Factor
In his July 25 podcast Bill O’Reilly begins with the question, “Are we a nation of selfish greedheads?” He seemed a bit appalled that year-to-date oil use is up 0.6% over last year and American’s are choosing comfort even though it’s funding the enemy in the war on terror. “The terrorists, they’re not selfish. They’ll blow themselves up. They’re not, we are and that’s pretty frightening.”
*** it’s possible later in the show Bill changed his tune. I only get the free 11 minute podcast…which is all I can stand.
Podcast –Doug McIntyre The Radio Factor
In his July 28 podcast (the very next show after Bill berated the American public for it’s addiction to comfort and oil) Guest Doug McIntyre followed his report about Floyd Landis’ failed blood doping test with, “I think anybody on a bicycle in spandex is failing the dope test…(more boorish stuff about fat butts and spandex)…buy a car, help the economy.”
Is this the sound an addict makes?
