The universities of Louisville and Kentucky renew their annual football rivalry on September 2nd at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. These shots were from the early morning TV pep rally for WHAS-11’s Good Morning Kentuckiana show.
Yahoo! News’ Washington bureau chief David Chalian was fired yesterday after a hot-mic blunder during an online broadcast from the RNC in Tampa. Referring to the simultaneous occurence of the GOP convention and the hurricane floods in New Orleans, Chilian made an off-the-cuff remark, picked up by an open mic, saying that Mitt Romney and his wife Ann were “not concerned at all” and “happy to have a party with black people drowning.” Audio of the incident quickly made its way online, posted by media watchdog NewsBusters. Yahoo! released the statement: “David Chalian’s statement was inappropriate and does not represent the views of Yahoo!. He has been terminated effective immediately. We have already reached out to the Romney campaign, and we apologize to Mitt Romney, his staff, their supporters and anyone who was offended.” Chalian issued the following apology: “I am profoundly sorry for making an inappropriate and thoughtless joke. I was commenting on the challenge of staging a convention during a hurricane and about campaign optics. I have apologized to the Romney campaign, and I want to take this opportunity to publicly apologize to Gov. and Mrs. Romney. I also regret causing any distraction from the exceptional coverage of the Republican convention by Yahoo! News and ABC News.”

On Friday’s radio show, I cited several polls and wondered aloud if the over/under on Mitt Romney would be whether he would get more votes than John McCain received in 2008.

LOL! Well, you don’t hide who YOU want to be the next President, do you? The disdain and contempt in your voice as you just spoke about Mitt Romney pretty much says it all. I do have a piece of advice for you: Before you spout off on politics, why don’t you actually READ the news, then get on the air? That way, you can be like the little trained Obama drones that manage to at least leave the sneer out of your tone when you speak of what you libs call ‘Birthers’, whom you then link to ‘crazies’, which of course leads you all to “Tea Baggers’. I personally don’t care where the guy was born anymore, I just want him gone. If you weren’t such a brain-washed lib, you would too. If not for yourself, at least for your kids or nieces and nephews. I’m not trying to convince you, that’s for sure. Truth is the ENEMY of liberalism, and I know I would be wasting my time. What I will say is that you ought to stick to news about Britney Spears and American Idol. Those subjects are your speed. Meaningless and empty, AND it has the added bonus of not having to be actually INFORMED about anything!
Your ignorance about, and your blind obedience to, something you don’t understand, (or care to) is both appalling and alarming.
In other words, you’re just another UNINFORMED lib!
See ya’ in November! LMAO! Polls….which ones are YOU reading? The same ones Debbie Wasserman-Shultz does? Dang, sorry, that was a dumb question. Of course they’re the same ones.

Thank you for your response.
As I pointed out in my e-mail the tone in your voice said pretty much all there is to say about your political outlook. That was what the e-mail was about, after all. Your POLITICAL outlook. I addressed the fact that you are FOR President Obama. When it comes to this particular issue, (the Presidential campaign) I somehow feel sure that am sure I am not the first one to e-mail you about the your leftist/apathetic leanings.
Of course, you never addressed all that. You did what libs do. You wrote a one line sentence basically echoing the same tone you use to describe anything a Republican does.
I would hazard to guess that as long as you have been on the radio, Mandy Connell (whom I ALSO think is somewhat uninformed but at least the light is beginning to come on) probably has more listeners than you even in the short time she has been here. Would I be right?
One thing you are correct about: I don’t know jack about you OTHER than your political bent, and don’t care to. Anyone as old as you that actually says ‘ That’s SO ’08′ in reference to something that half the people in the country believe is not someone I would WANT to know. You dismissed an entire section of Americans with a sneer. I no longer listen to Rush Limbaugh for the same reason. It’s a one-way street for him also.
That’s enough for me.
My advice to you: Read some REAL news. It doesn’t have to be the birther stuff you hate so much, just some REAL news about all the OTHER things that are going on in Washington and around the country. Again, I know I am wasting my time, but it’s my duty to try, since you at least had the decency to respond to my e-mail.
Thank you again, and have a good day!

I am Mandy Connell. The station saves on salaries by making all of us change our voices to pretend to be different people. Tony Cruise is also Mark Levin and Ron & Mel. Lachlan McLean also acts as the overnight UFO guy and all of the Sunday morning preachers.
Recessions are rough on all of us.
Are you really you, or is someone else pretending to be this condescending, nameless know-it-all?
