Burr on The Brad & Britt Show
Last week, Congressman Brad Miller spoke at length on The Brad & Britt Show at FM Talk 101.1 WZTK, shortly after announcing his decision not to run for reelection and discussing the idea of running for governor.
This morning, Senator Richard Burr called in to discuss his vote against the Stock Act, which purported to make insider trading by federal lawmakers and employees illegal. He did a good job explaining that the legislation was redundant, as such practices are already illegal, despite a November 60 Minutes report alleging such abuses.
These are two recent examples of why The Brad & Britt Show, while offering excellent entertainment with imitations of Dan Rather and the late Strom Thurmond, is among our best sources for up to the minute important news on local and state issues. Their regular conversations with national correspondents also make the show a must listen in the morning.
Since I have been critical of Allan Handelman in the past, this is a good opportunity to compliment his show for an unfailing moderate stance on political issues. I’ve come to find his programs to also be highly entertaining and informative.
I don’t listen every day and so am not aware if the bombastic Rich Brenner is continuing to substitute for Brad & Britt when they are absent. However, Brenner, by distancing himself from C4GC and taking a more moderate stance on issues such as same-sex marriage, is proving to be a more palatable media personality and even a beneficial influence in local conservative politics.
