I caught Goldy’s half hour on “The Dori Monson Show.” I’m not blowin’ smoke; I think the chief did good. I’m not sure if Dori knows the meaning of “context,” however, and I encourage Dave Ross to highlight the word in the KIRO On-Air Staff’s Dictionary. It might prove useful.
Did you hear the first half of the hour? Dori’s guest was Neal Boortz, author and talk show host. Dori spent the half hour basically smooching Boortz on the rear. I mean, really, Monson was laying it on thick. He was feeding him the “Local Outrage of the Day.” Dori told him a story of a school that taught communitarian values to students by forcing the kids to tear down their “Lego town” and rebuild it using Marx-Leninist teachings. Boortz then launched into the evils of government-run schools. Dori had to interrupt the guy to tell him it was a private school… Oh well, I guess its a matter of “context.”
Boortz happens to be a libertarian. Dori saaaays he’s a libertarian, but he’s a Bush Buddy on the Iraq War and the Drug War. It’s like those girls you knew of in high school, the ones who went to Third Base with entire football team but declared themselves virgins. Right. Methinks Dori needs to own up to the fact that he’s one of the 30% that thinks Bush is doing a super job.
I don’t want to be too hard on D-Mon. After all, he gave Goldy his big break. Radio is a business. When I hear my liberal buddies whine about how Dori’s a douche bag and an idiot, I have to tell them to just turn off the radio. Dori may be wrong on everything, but he’s got the radio gig down pat.
Even if he’s got a “man-crush” on Neal Boortz.
