" At Least We're Pure!"

 Via Rand Simberg comes a tale of ...I'm not sure what...but it's kinda nasty.

 It seems that Florida Democrats, ( no doubt still insecure about there inability to properly fill out a ballot )are trying to nix the current arrangement whereby Emergency Weather info is carried uninterrupted by One of Florida's top rated stations....because it's the flagship station of Rush Limbaugh.

The deal with WIOD would ensure that news conferences are broadcast start to finish live from the county Emergency Operations Center in Plantation. Emergency managers became concerned during hurricanes in 2004 and 2005 that radio and television stations preempted their announcements in favor of news out of Miami.

Ken Charles, WIOD's director of AM programming, said Tuesday the station's talk show lineup has no relationship with its news coverage and that the county should focus on the benefits of teaming with the station.

"It's a shame that people would let politics get in the way of saving lives in a hurricane," Charles said.

OK...so lets get this straight....the agreement would preempt their broadcasting in favor of vital, lifesaving weather information. But rather than have Rush off the air while bulletins are going out....these brain trusts  want to kill the agreement rather than deal with  a station that employs  someone they feel is "double plus ungood".



...and evil.

Ye Gods.
