I listen to people like Boortz because he is very entertaining. The fact that I agree with most of what he says and get informed at the same time is just a plus. Radio isn't like tv. You can't have people just talking and giving their opinion without some form of entertainment thrown in regardless of whether or not I agree with what's being said.

Smerconish IS as dull as dishwater. So is Hannity. Beck and Boortz entertain. Limbaugh still entertains, but his routine is a little stale. For me, Savage is king on the right. And on the left, all hail Mike Malloy!

May I remind the person wanting to save "the REPUBLIC" that the Roman Empire was, at least for a time, a republic, too.

While we can probably draw some significant parallels between their Senate and ours, on the whole, I'd rather have a functioning democracy than a republic.

Just sayin'.

Boortz is by far my favorite radio host, and it's not even close.

Neal Boortz is more entertaining than either Mikes either have. Also lets dont forget the top titans in radio are Rush, Beck, Sean and Levin. Rush and Beck have their own companies so they have no bosses to tell them how to do their shows and Sean and Levin are great hosts who mix good topics and great guests in on their shows. Lets not forget that the other things they have in common, rock ribbed conservatism. Liberal talk radio is an endangered species. They had millions of dollars put into Air America and it flopped like a caught fish. No body wanted to hear it. But lets face it, Smerconish and Huck are moderate at best. Good guys but moderate milquetoasts. Passion equals ratings.

Boortz has expels more talent and wit in one of his farts than Huckabee could muster in a year on the radio.40 yrs. on the radio speaks volumes.
