Howdy! Just a note to let y’all know I got the call — I’m now a semi-finalist in the TalkProgress.org Nationwide Progressive Radio Talk Show contest. The Final Four. In the country. Me!
Anyway, I record live 6am-8am Pacific (9-11 Eastern), the show airs on my local Clear Channel Progressive Talk Station (AM 620 KPOJ) at Noon Pacific; I don’t know when or if it’s on in your neck of the woods, but you can listen live or on-demand at talkprogress.org.
If I make the Finals, me and the other finalist will be flown to Washington DC to compete live on Thursday, Nov 16. If I win, I get a year’s contract for my own syndicated weekend progressive talk radio show.
So… anybody have any talking points, good insight, or suggestions for my show tomorrow? I think I’m going to focus on the gay marriage amendments, the 33% of evangelicals who voted Dem, and how the gay bashing may have worked against Repugs this time around (since those 1 out of 3 of the fundies they courted voted against them). I wanna look at how Colorado’s Anti-Gay Marriage won with about the same margin as the Pro-Domestic Partnerships failed. I want to compare and contrast us versus Spain, Mexico City, and South Africa. Anyone got the historical data and vote tallies from all the previous anti-gay marriage initiatives?
Again, any help will be appreciated — I’ve got to be loaded for bear and ready to be bright, witty, incisive, humorous, and energetic at 6am… help!
