Cuprisin calls it "a new low"

Tim Cuprisin of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel notes on his blog,
Mike McGee aired another one of his disgusting rants today on his WNOV-AM (860) radio show..

At a time when even folks who have political disagreements with Charlie Sykes are offering condolences on the death of his mother, McGee the elder is slamming a guy when he's down.

Thanks to obsessive McGee listeners out there, like Real Debate Wisconsin, you can hear McGee's vile comments, such as "a woman that had a fool like that deserves whatever's comin' to her, 'cause she raised a sure enough idiot."

It got worse, when he said, ""My instincts say Charlie Sykes killed his mommy.... He got tired a waitin' for that money."
Bob Walker, program director of WKTI, also condemns McGee's remarks,
How can any reasonable person not compare McGee's rant with Imus'? I read Al Sharpton's critique of Imus' bit and it applies to McGee 100%.

McGee doesn't have the national platform of Imus so I do not expect Al Sharpton to fly into Mitchell anytime soon. But I sure hope everyone in Wisconsin who was asking for Imus' head is up in arms about this. I will be checking the JS in a minute to see if that is the case.

It's so tough to support offensive free speech from McGee or anyone else. Be assured: I would also support WNOV's right to can McGee if they don't want that kind of editorial spewing from their frequency.

Oddly enough - McGee's comments were slanderous. Even Imus didn't go there. I say let the lawyers go after him. Then he'll know the meaning of vengeance.
And Professor John McAdams caught the news at 10:00 last night on WTMJ-TV who reported McGee Sr will not be on the air Friday. Unfortunately there is nothing on their site.
