Listener comments!

  Tue. 1/10/12 6:05pm Danne D:

Let 'em Have It Chris!
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:08pm Caryn:

Hi Danneee! And Chris!
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:08pm Danne D:

Chris - do you have your e-mail set up so that his forwarded e-mails all funnel into the same folder? It's a handy feature.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:08pm Danne D:

Hi Carrynnn :)
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:10pm Hiram:

A head Republican lawmaker in New Jersey dropped dead in the bathroom of the statehouse last night. He has a huge military gun on the front lawn of his office on Rt. 10 in Whippany.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:13pm Danne D:

Wow - Wayne Allen Root - that dude is a crazy former Libertarian candidate for prez/vice prez - no?

Aha here he is - also he's one of those guys that would relentlessly pitch his sports picks

  Tue. 1/10/12 6:13pm Robert:

Hey, Wayne Root!!!!!! As in Root for America, his slogan when he ran for vice president as the Libertarian Party's nominee in 2008.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:15pm Danne D:

(he has been cited for pyramid scheme stuff too)
Makes Trump credible.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:16pm Mike Sin:

For clarity -- "Greatest Generation" = those born between 1915 and 1930, correct? 80 years old and older at this point?
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:16pm Danne D:

@Hiram yeah I heard about that - it is sad news - he was a longtime legislator. I doubt I agreed much with most policies he favored, but my heart goes out to his family and colleagues. :(
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:17pm Danne D:

@Mike Sin Greatest Generation is actually 1901-1924 I believe. G H W Bush would be considered the last year of the Greatest Generation
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:18pm Robert:

I wish I could sell like Wayne Root.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:19pm Danne D:

Neat Book about the Generations. Bought it when it was new: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strauss_and_Howe
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:19pm Robert:

He sought the nomination for president, but took it for VP.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:20pm Danne D:

Yep - Wayne Allyn Root used to do one of those radio shows where he'd guarantee winners and have his "5-star-ulimate-super-deluxe-mortal-lock-of-the-year" each week and stuff.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:20pm Caryn:

Man, this e-mail is ridiculous... Not to mention kinda uninformed about some basic facts. Fun to listen to, though. Maybe Root should try comedy, since the VP thing didn't pan out.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:20pm Danne D:

Silent Generation = 1925-1942 roughly
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:21pm Robert:

Yes, gambling was one of his big issues, his having been a tout in Nevada. I admire him, and think that those who are down on his enthusiasm are just down on enthusiasm, period.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:21pm Mike Sin:

Just asking... not correcting.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:23pm Danne D:


Yup - he said it.

This - how ever is not correct:
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:24pm Danne D:

Chris - why not just put him on the Obama for America mailing list? Or how about just forward him all the campaign updates from OFA?
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:24pm Robert:

having been active in the Libertarian Party for decades before I quit in 2002, I don't like to encourage them, BUT Wayne Root is the type I'd like on my side if I were still in it.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:25pm Robert:

I'm a Columbia alum too.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:25pm Danne D:

lol - the joy of not knowing about bcc
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:26pm Danne D:

"Tebowing" might set the record for fastest term to be coined and make it into the Oxford Dictionary
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:28pm snore:

how is this a topic ? what year are you living in?
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:31pm Robert:

Yes, I meant Wayne Root -- not your pa-in-law.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:31pm Danne D:

Greatest Generation = WW II veterans. The last of those was born in '24. The Silent Generation came after. Unfortunately, we're all getting older :(
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:31pm Greg from VA:

Just take the same email, copy it, but say if you forward this to 10 friends, they will surely die.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:32pm Mike East:

My Greatest Generation Grandfather just turned 90 last week.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:32pm Chris T.:

Dear Snore:
Suck it.
Chris T.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:32pm the only listener in utah:

send it to me! I dont want you to die. its a big decision
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:33pm Danne D:

Who would Wayne Allyn Root pick between the Giants and Packers?
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:33pm hamburger:

send it to me please too! I want to win the lottery! Also I don't want to die!
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:33pm depressed Persian cab driver:

Did you get the one yet about the Obama Presidential Library, with the photoshopped outhouse? Forwarded from my Dad, and re-forwarded from me to my sister. Yuk Yuk!! I can't reason with either, so I pass the crap along and sigh. I can't just block their emails, much as I'd like to.
Chris, do you think your father in law is trying to educate you with this stuff or making a joke? We can never tell in this family.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:34pm Danne D:

I have to guiltily admit beating the evil Steelers has made me more of a Tebow fan.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:35pm Mark in VT:

I am not a sports guy but before T bow was famous and people were talking about him and how he did his religious thing so much I thought that was not so unusual. Then I found out he was a white q back. NOW it is a big deal because he is a white Q back. Black players have been doing this ritual stuff for decades
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:35pm the only listener in utah:

is this immortality we're talking about here?
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:35pm Robert:

Now that I've been coaching children in football for a few years, I have no interest in watching it, in person or on video. I'll watch video with coaching analysis of play from games, but not the games themselves.

Same thing happened with a friend after he'd coached basketball & baseball.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:36pm Danne D:

I don't get much of that spam, but here's a great website where people fight back against those "Nigerian Billionaire E-mail Schemes" - http://www.419eater.com/index.php
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:40pm Danne D:

I sent you one, Chris. I don't get too many of 'em anymore.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:40pm snore:

you fat douche
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:42pm Chris T.:

Dear Snore:
What are you, a friggin' Adonis?
Chris T.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:43pm snore:

why . yes I am.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:44pm snore:

gotta leave your house soon.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:44pm Chris T.:

Dear Snore:
No you're not. You're just an anonymous coward. I repeat SUCK IT. Dont' listen to the show. There are plenty of other things on right now.
Chris T.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:45pm Todd 76%:

Snore is actually Bruce from AOD...he's frontin', and messin' w/ you Chris. Greetings from CT!
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:45pm Hiram:

This music makes me imagine Chris is down in the mines fighting Thugee in The Temple of Doom.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:45pm Danne D:

He's probably mad because he likes to send those kinds of chain e-mails
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:46pm ShootSnore:

Snore does just that to people - makes them snore...ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:47pm Caryn:

Nah, he just thinks there's not enough trolling on the comments boards. Just ignore the little troll, and he'll go under his bridge again.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:48pm the only listener in utah:

I only get forwards from missionaries
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:50pm Danne D:

Lovin this call :)
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:50pm snore:

listen to the tug boat guy .
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:52pm Danne D:

Polls start closing in New Hampshire in 8 minutes (though in some parts of NH they are open for another 1 hour and 8 minutes)
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:52pm the only listener in utah:

utah loves cuntsman
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:55pm David Bowie:

The snore that fell to earth.
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:56pm Caryn::

my pussy hurts
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:56pm Danne D:

Thanks for an enjoyable show as always, Chris!
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:57pm the only listener in utah:

i can heal caryn
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:57pm Danne D:

"Along Again Or" awesome exit song
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:58pm Caryn:

too bad that wasn't the real caryn who said that, but Jessica Tandy freaking out was enjoyable, Chris
  Tue. 1/10/12 6:58pm seang:
