Argument I had with the Tom Becka Show, lol

Postby Areo » Tue Sep 02, 2008 11:32 am

I caught the beginning of the Tom Becka Show the other day, an Omaha local radio show. Below is an email we were bouncing back and forth. He started out his radio broadcast with "Sarah Palin... could be americas first MILF..." Irritated me, so I wrote him. We were bouncing this email while he was on the radio or atleast his screener and I were. It's an email so you have to read from the bottom up.


JFK and Prior to that I believe it was Harry Truman although he was elected as vice president ass a senator

I would agree that it isn’t a fair comparison at all. Being governor is a much harder job than being a senator, you have a budget and veto power. Plus there isn’t 99 other people you can share the blame with. An easier comparison would be governor to president.

Matter of fact, can you name the last senator elected to be president? Or the one before that?

Thank you for the geography lesson. But since Biden was not the governor of Delaware but a Senator it really is not a fair comparison is it? I believed my audience could have a better grasp of the Omaha reference than a state most have never been to..

And the “MILF” comment? Is that another local reference?

And just so you know, Joe Biden is a senator in the state of Delaware. Very similar populations, except that in Alaska, Palin has Executive experience. Neither Biden or Obama can say the same.

Well when you have your radio show you can do it your way and have strangers write you e-mails asking why you are talking about a small state 1500 miles away when there was a good local reference. This is an Omaha radio show.

Thanks

Which points out nothing. Comparing it to Delaware draws a clear comparative point.

Or am I losing you in the Delaware reference?

If I ran a radio show I would do some research before I got on and sounded like a fool. You open with “Americas first MILF”. Seriously… Then you compare Alaska to Omaha. How about Delaware. There is only about an 180,000 person difference. That took me all of 30 seconds to google. I would love to continue to pick apart your show, but I always turn the radio off at this time.

/em wonders if she'll get the presidential cigar :P

But yeah that is a pretty unintelligent cheap shot to make as a radio host, who's obviously a Nobama fan hehe. I can see where he got it from tho, she's decent looking and they hugged in the spotlight while giving speeches, then he was trying to stand at ease and caught himself subconciously fiddling with his wedding ring finger lol. That was a dumb thing to do, gave his/her critics some free ammo.

Warren G. Harding was the first elected president who was a sitting senator.

Thats awesome - I have no Idea what a MILF is and I get two peeps making fun of me for it. Wow - this must be some common thing. Never said I was with current slang. I can't say I have ever heard anyone say Milf at work let alone in referance to any discussion about current politics.

Altho - I do appreciate the expectation that I am pulling legs - as that is my normal forte.

Aghhh..

That explains it. Never made it past the first 10 minutes of any American Pie movie. hate the genre.

Except in SuperBad. Superbad was pretty lowbrow until the cop ride with McLovin took off. From then on it was a riot.
