An Open Letter to Bill Press 

In the past few days, I've heard Bill Press say some fairly amazing things. I'm beginning to think that I will continue to hear some shockers from him, so I'm going to start documenting them here.

Now, I LOVE (love love love) progressive talk radio in general and Air America specifically. I listened to probably 98% of Al Franken's radio show from the very first day and not that he is gone, I still listen to Thom Hartmann who took his time slot. I listen to Stephanie Miller every morning. I catch an hour or so of Randi Rhodes in the afternoon. The full list of talk radio hosts that I currently enjoy: Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Randi Rhodes, Rachel Maddow. I used to also listen to: Al Franken, Marc Maron, Ed Schultz, Sam Seder and The Young Turks. Also Bill Press. Ahh Bill...

1. On Tuesday, and I'm not sure what the discussion was about because I had just turned on the radio, but someone mentioned something about a "box of fruit". Bill gave an incredulous laugh and said, "Box of fruit? I can get you a box of fruit from Harry and David!" No wonder Republicans like to label democrats "elitists"...
2. This morning, talking about Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) who is pregnant, Bill said something to the effect of, "It wasn't that long ago that Dan Quayle went after Murphy Brown for being a single mother." Uh, Bill? 1992. 16 years and 5 Presidential Administrations ago.

Stay tuned for more Bill being Bill.
