Loud and Clueless Talkers On the Right Please

I thought about writing my own blistering take on radio talker Kevin James' hapless appearance on Hardball, but someone beat to the punch. Enjoy.

Kevin James: The Poster Boy for What's Wrong with Talk Radio
Posted 5/16/2008 6:47 AM CDT
In a very funny, yet sad exchange on Hardball yesterday, host Chris Matthews humiliated right wingnut radio jabber Kevin James over the "appeasement" uproar stupidly started by GWB in Israel yesterday. This guy looks about 16 years old and is like a giant Chatty Kathy - just pull the string and he repeats the same talking points in order ad infinitum. Chris couldn't control the conversation, or this guy's mouth, so he tried to quizz him on appeasement by Neville Chamberlain, prime minister of Britain in the '30s, and the Munich Agreement where Britain ceded part of Czechoslovakia to Hitler. This guy didn't even know who Chamberlain was, how he got tagged with the appeaser label, or what he did.
After making a complete fool of himself, Kevin just started repeating "appeasement" faster and faster linking the accusation to Obama. I nearly fell out of my chair when the other guest, Mark Green. of Air America, who otherwise couldn't get a word in edgewise, finally blurted out, "When you're in a hole, you stop digging."
