Default Odd Banner re: Political Talk

So, I started up the Sirius Player on my computer at work this morning and I saw the most interesting banner ad in the bottom, left-hand side of the window. It read, "Did you know? Sirius has 4 channels of Liberal and Conservative Talk." Here it is:



The optimistic part of me thought, "oh wow - perhaps Sirius secretly launched a replacement for Air America overnight," and the pessimistic side thought, "oh wow - they have dropped the ball so bad, they haven't even changed the banners yet." Needless to say, the pessimistic side won out when I clicked on the banner and I was taken to the Talk/Entertainment -> Entertainment page.

I know, I know that ABC is listed as an All Political Talk channel. And, there are those out there who will remain nameless that believe many other channels on Sirius lean one way or an other, but the banner reads "Liberal and Conservative" and I only see three streams labeled as such.

I love Sirius, but what a bunch of idiots.

I heard that 144 is going to be The Ed Asner Channel. I guess the parannoid moonbat contingent have spoken loud enough to the programming dept. at Sirius. That should take care of you, my man.

That isn't necessary. Why you gotta call names? The dude said Sirius dropped the ball on this, and they did. By his post, I can't tell if he's a lib, or a goober like you. Actually, go ahead and keep doing what you're doing. It's good to have a village idiot to point and laugh at.

All lib - no goobers.

Although, I do feel kinda honored to have garnered a response from Mr. Congeniality himself.

Ya see!?! I'm lookin' out for you. I don't want you to feel cheated by not enough moonbat radio. There's plenty of bandwidth for everyone (even Martha.... Stewart & Quinn!).

4 sentences and you manage to harangue him for calling names and then proceed to call him 2 names. That may be a new record!

That was kind of the point. It's called sarcasm. Hence the use of smileys. See?
