Tomorrow morning at 8:30 am ET (6:30 am MT) I'll be talking about the fifth anniversary of Colin Powell's UN appearance on KGAB in Cheyenne.

wow, you're almost as big a media celebrity/ "political commentator" as your buddy Bob Harris. A 630 AM radio appearance in a major media market, impressive. Are you going to be jerking off, as usual?

Eh, I am currently analyzing the Serbian telcom market, something I consider much more interesting and likely to lead to interesting insights about the world than blathering on about Colin Powell.

Ugh, DBs.

xyz was remiss in pointing out how this makes it clear that you're not just a stupid rabbit, but also a pinko commie--KGaB, indeed.

i am currently analyzing the market for internet trolls and it's given me great insights into the world of econ 101, greater than Mr Smith and his ancient babble. i find that while demand rarely rises above the X-axis, the supply is quite rich. this is not merely a market failure, it is a market that should not exist.

but yet, we have insurmountable proof of the existence of trolls right here. the only thing lacking is a first!/frist! comment.

sure, the theory is a bit rough around the edges, but so were Martin Luther's parchments nailed to the church door.

Hard to believe Wyoming talk radio would be sympathetic... tell us how it went!

I should go there, except that its 400 miles and I'll think he's lying. I'll listen to the show though.

It went really well. I don't know about the morning host, but it's a station that's mostly right-wing talk: Hannity, etc. But we were in complete agreement on everything: the political class sucks pretty much across the board, but in the end it's our responsibility/fault.
