On the Air

From the YAHOO! JohnShimkusWatch Discussion Group:

During the current congressional recess, Rep. John Shimkus has been active on the airwaves. KWMU "St. Louis on the Air" hosted an hour long interview with him on January 04, 2006, at 11 a.m. It is available as an MP3 or through Windows Media Player.
It is a very interesting one hour. To those who have done their homework, there are a few obvious inconsistencies with reality -- right from the very beginning of the interview. The good news is that this is a radio interview. Listeners do not have to watch the congressman's class ring do all the talking for him.

Rep. Shimkus also has television covered -- if people are watching from 3 a.m. to 6 a.m. Unfavorable Opinion is an unemployed college co-ed and caught his public service announcement (albeit, no mention if his talking class ring).

It's easier to name the Republicans who ARE in touch with reality than those who aren't. Read the Co-ed's comments several days ago. Too bad she didn't comment on the ring, I'm sure her observations would be hilarious!

I'm thanking the Powers That Be that the infamous talking class ring was not present during his few minutes of fame. In the past, I had the misfortune of witnessing a debate with John Shimkus as one of the debaters. I found it increasingly hard to pay attention to what he was saying. Almost the entire time he spoke, he sported his class ring on a rather limp hand *cough . . . cough* as he waved it around. Maybe it's a diversion thinking no one will notice the obvious lisp. Maybe he uses it to hypnotize the audience.

One wonders if Air Traffic Control uses him occasionally to direct planes in their approach since they can see that winking ring quite clearly. A very effective beacon . . . even from space.
