Former Democratic politician and shock-show TV host Jerry Springer has a theory as to why liberal talk radio doesn't do well: it doesn't matter because "the liberals won." To support his hypothesis, he says, all you have to do is look at the next generation.
"We have conservative politicians, we give conservative speeches, but on every major issue the liberals have won," he said on Howard Stern's radio show Wednesday. "We are a liberal country. You can go into the most conservative neighborhood in America and ... talk to their kids, and their kids listen to the same music, talk the same way, dress the same way -- culturally we're liberal."
"The liberals won, on every issue, on every issue!" he added. And it's the product of the 60s "protest movement":
Springer's comment that you "seem more adult if you give a conservative speech" might just be a retelling of the old Churchill saying: “If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty you have no brain.”
