Cunningham, of course, is not an original political thinker. He's a sock puppet, the Oliver J. Dragon who delivers his ventriloquist's talking points. He's famous for being an apologist for the powerful, and for being wrong; in 1989 he insisted there was no believable evidence Pete Rose bet on baseball, and consistently insisted Rose was innocent until Rose admitted guilt. Cunningham, thus, couldn't spot a lie when it was staring him in the face. His talk show philosophy, boiled down to its essence, is warmed over Rush and Hannity. He lacks originality and creativity. Like a cockroach, he picks up the conservative crumbs that drop from their plates. Even now, after McCain apologized for Cunningham's behavior, the Cincinnati talker could come up with nothing better than to say he would follow Ann Coulter's lead and vote for Hillary Clinton. In his snit, the conservative cockroach stayed true to form, that of an insect species which survives on detritus, and scurried to run off with a Coulter crumb. Cunningham again proved he was a follower -- this time behind Coulter -- because he lacks all ability to deliver an original thought. As the election year proceeds, WLW listeners can expect bumper sticker talk like this as Cunningham expounds on:
- Education: Ten Commandments, Barack Hussein Obama.
- Crime: Willie Horton, Barack Hussein Obama.
- Iraq War: Support the Troops, Barack Hussein Obama.
- Trade and Globalization: Wal-Mart, Barack Hussein Obama.
- Marriage: Gays, Barack Hussein Obama.
- Mean Jean Schmidt: Nancy Pelosi, Barack Hussein Obama.
- Capital Punishment: Guillotine, Barack Hussein Obama.
- Taxes: Welfare queens, Barack Hussein Obama.
- John McCain: Swiftboats, Barack Hussein Obama.
