A new "no man"

Kulongoski names chief spokesman
Gov. Ted Kulongoski on Wednesday named Lonn Hoklin, the communications director for the House Democrats, to be his new chief spokesman.

Kulongoski has a new guy to say "we're not interested" to talking to the whole state of Oregon on the Lars Larson show.

Why would anyone want to talk to that jerk? He's belligerent, he cuts people off and hangs up on them when they appear to be getting the upper-hand in an argument. He's got a classic case of the Napolean complex. Oh, and did I mention, he's a jerk.

Serious, why would anyone want to go on a show where they know they're going to be attacked relentlessly by a fool.

Used to listen but the "national show" swelled the head even larger.

and having to endure the wait, the sleep #'s, and jumping around from dull topic to dull topic, all the tease,loses me.

I know Lars, your ratings are great but>

Read Anne Martens open letter to Lars at blueoregon.com. It's hysterical.

Anon above, thanks for the info>

and we're supposed to trust Billy boy Bradbury's office with PARTISAN public servant HACKS like Anne Martens & Jesse Cornett.

Ms. Martens is a moron! Cornett, a punk!

Lars may be a jerk, but some of the things you need to realize about a radio show is:

1) He rules the show. You are at his whim. I know this, because I used to be in his shoes as the host of my own show.

2) He doesn't need to listen to anyone, and if he's heard the same old line in the past, he will cut to the heart. You don't have a right for your opinion to be heard on the radio, you are at the will of the host.

3) Most of the people he ends up hanging up on don't have an upper hand, or their upper hand is whapping their wang.

Anon (all but the last one), you may not like him...but if you call his show, you WILL play by his rules.

That is all I will say on the matter, except for the fact that the 4 upper Anons need to get some education about radio.

Too bad so many people actually use talk-radio as a news source. The info-tainment industry is bad for our country. As if the founding fathers envisioned civic discourse taking place in this manner.

Since Lars knows the ropes so well, he shouldn't spend so much time on the air bellyaching because no right-minded person will debate him in his bile-filled echo-chamber. It's just info-tainment after all.

I wonder if the head of the Laurelhurst Neighborhood association would agree. He went on there and seemed to do pretty good.

As does Pete Sorenson.

I'd almost just have the anons say thank you, and go on their way.

As far as info-tainment is concerned, if you don't like it...you have two choices: On or Off.

Everywhere is infotainment, including NPR. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't know radio/TV all that well.
