he would be well advised to look at the forums on the Herald's website. It reads like the local chapter of Freepers took over. Also, why doesn't he look at the clear bias and out and out electioneering done for Brown by both WTKK and WRKO. My god, election day on both of those stations was nothing but one long Scott Brown ad. While Carr was bad, no one was worse than the execrable Michele (on Facebook with one L!}McPhee. It was almost heartwarming listening to her indulging a crush on someone other than cops for once.

In the dead-tree edition of today's Chicopee Herald, Carr wrote: "Whomever's fault this delay in seating the new senator was, can you imagine Martha Coakley having to wait two-plus weeks to be sworn in?"
WHOMEVER'S as the subject of a sentence? Yesterday, according to mediamatters.org, Rush Limbaugh said time away from public schooling was not wasted; time spent IN public school was! Evidently, Howie skipped school on the day the use of 'whoever' and 'whomever' was taught. The Herald's online version has been corrected. (I still don't like the construction of the sentence...he could have written "I don't know whose fault the delay was, etc". That would have been clearer.

Don't forget WEEI! Ordway, DeOssie and Smerlas all on the bandwagon. I still prefer to remember this as the 'Gillette Stadium Election'.

howie tries to come off as the 'average joe' so he can identify with common plebian-folk whom he perceives as the dumbed-down, undeducated slags that read the herald BUT (a big BUT here folks) he is anything but average...
first off - although he comes off using the same street slang as your average southy dirtbag he is putting on an act - he is more educated than the so called ivy league 'liberals' whom he attacks...
secondly - he is f'ing loaded... nothing like the average joe whom he writes so carefully to identify with... look up where he lives and how much he likely made off of his books...

Being conservative really pays off if you are a self-marketer and have no problem prostituting yourself and morals... Howie is an actor - rich because he pulls off an act looking like the common pissed off guy struggling to pay the bills and do the right thing...

In all honesty, however, I don't know what is more bullshit - the fact that Howie Carr writes the doochbagery that he writes OR the fact that people actually swallow his fecal matter whole and beg for more....

...where am I?

Books, columns, and radio show. Howie has money coming in from all three, and possibly from more sources. WRKO pays him around $1 million annually (+or- $100G) to host his talk show.
