Sign of the Apocalypse: Mike "Heckuva Job Brownie" Now Hosting Radio As a Political/Gov't Expert

So I'm driving home after finishing up my drive-time radio show here on AM760 in Colorado, and I'm flipping through the stations and I come upon 850 KOA - the local conservative station. There's a host on there filling in for the regular guy - and this guest host has a vaguely familiar voice. He's whining and moaning about how he's among the richest 5 percent in the country and is being oppressed by the tax system. He's reading the script with the usual lies - all of them addressed and debunked in my most recent column. I'm getting mildly irritated listening to the drivel - but then become apoplectic when I hear this person introduce himself as Michael Brown.

Yes, Mike "Heckuva Job, Brownie" Brown. On the airwaves. As a political/governmental expert.

I. Shit. You. Not.
