Finally, an update!
-There are a couple of new affiliates: KCAA (which was the station embroiled in that controversy last year), and WINZ in Miami. When I heard that he was on a station called "WINZ," I wondered if it was like a "hip" urban version of WINS, the famous NYC news station, and thought that maybe Imus was trying to get down with the kids. Sadly, that is not the case.
-As for John McCain's VP pick: Well-played, Senator. Well-played.
It also appears that McCain has an SNL obsession. Several people have mentioned that McCain's wife, Cindy, looks a lot like Amy Poehler, a cast member of Saturday Night Live. Yesterday, we learned that his VP candidate looks a lot like Tina Fey, a former member of the same show. Many pundits consider his VP choice a daring move; most politicians would’ve played it safe and chosen a more "experienced" and “seasoned” ex-cast member, like a Jan Hooks, or an Ana Gasteyer, or even a Cheri Oteri. This is why McCain is considered a maverick.
Incidentally, I noticed an interesting music selection at yesterday’s press conference. When McCain announced his VP choice, the loudspeakers began to blast a great inspirational song, one of those famous movie themes that stir the heart...the theme from Rudy. You'd think that a staff member would've caught that...
