OCTOBER 6, 2003 - "Huh?
That's right, don't answer, because you have no answer.
Because you're an idiot."
Those were the words that came out of AM
talk-radio host Larry Elder's mouth moments after he disconnected a
man who was in the middle of giving Elder an answer - an answer
Elder didn't want to hear.
"You have no answer. Because
you're an idiot," he said to the man he didn't give a chance to
answer, but instead hung up on.
The exchange began when a caller to the
show challenged Larry with a question, "Why do the terrorists attack
us and not other wealthy nations, like Sweden, Canada..." The
man's point was very clear - that both Osama and Saddam are only our
enemies because of previous Republican foreign policy.
But Elder, of course having to stick to
the talk-radio script of never admitting they are wrong or taking
responsibility for anything, pulled the standard, cowardly
right-winger game of disconnecting the man mid-sentence.
Ok, that is pussy material.
But wait, even that is not enough for
Larry. No, Larry had to them try to sound tough as he assailed
a man he cowardly disconnected as not being able to answer, and
then, even more bravely, called this man whose answers he had
cowered from an "idiot" for not giving an answer.
Yes, this is the scrawny little pussy
that we all knew at school who would talk tough to himself in front
of the mirror at home, but run away and cry at the slightest
confrontation in reality.
In basic man standards, there is nothing
more wuss-like than talking behind someone's back - at least there
wasn't until Larry came onto the scene. Now, here is someone
who hides away in some little studio where he uses a button to
create the illusion he is talking to someone's face, when in reality
he is still fleeing at the first sign of confrontation back to his
little room with the mirror.
It is extremely obvious when Larry does
this - and he does this on a regular basis, disconnects a caller who
is about to give an answer that shows he is wrong, and then talks
tough - of course at a grade-school bully level - about the person
he just ran away crying from by hitting the disconnect button.
Even most AM talk-radio idiots - even Laura Schlessinger - can
manage to win over their callers in some less wussy manner.
But no, not Larry. And with his
fleeing to this tactic so frequent and so obvious, one can only
wonder, who is truly more wussy, Larry for doing this, or the
pussified idiots who listen to and side with a cowardly little pussy
like Larry Elder.
