The Miller Barometer

Dennis Miller has a radio show.  Who knew?  But then again, bottom-feeding right-wing talk shows are as common — and as identical — as cockroaches.  Their only purpose seems to be to give sad sack teabaggers some open lines to call when they’re sick of getting spurned by the A-list shows.

Today I happened to catch the formerly funny Miller and his woozy callers practically salivating for a government shutdown.  I have no idea how that’s going to help the conservative cause.  Neither do they.  But they want a shutdown the way you still want that chick from high school.  It’s going to be quite a disappointment when they finally get it and nothing great happens.  They’ll probably take out their frustrations on poor John Boehner.  (I wish they’d just end the suspense and put Eric Cantor in charge now.  Watching The Boner engineer his own execution makes me sad.  It’s like watching Fredo in Godfather II.)
