Only Car Owners really get...

California politics.

Briefly stated, the theory goes like this: Conservative radio hosts thrive on a kind of populist anger at politicians that is not terribly different from the road rage that drivers stuck in traffic feel for other motorists.

So glad I'm not one of them.

What a crappy life.

Take it one more step. In the car on a highway is probably where a lot of folks listen to right-wing talk in the first place. Perhaps the two are more closely related than we realize! How much of Rush's popularity can be attributed to a sympathetic response to frustrated rush hour-gridlocked drivers? I too, I'm glad to have kicked that traffic habit.
