It may never occur to liberals that crying wolf ad infinitum where racism doesn't exist makes actual examples less likely to be believed.

The claim has been so abused by the left since this allegedly racist country elected a man of color as president in 2008, then re-elected him four years later, that it is more often met now with skepticism instead of revulsion. (Audio after the jump)

Liberals thought their fondest dream had come true on Feb. 29, 2012, when weekday radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh referred to Georgetown University Law Student Sandra Fluke as a “slut” and a “prostitute” after she testified the week before to House Democrats in favor of forcing insurance companies to pay the full cost of contraceptives.

Democrats quickly urged sponsors to boycott the conservative icon's program, and that hurt advertising for the rest of the year. But Limbaugh's distributor -- Dan Metter -- said on Thursday that the radio host is not only drawing new advertisers, but he's also welcoming back a number of long-time sponsors.

Given that his grandfather, Joseph P. Kennedy, was one of the most notorious appeasers of the last century, you'd think Robert F. Kennedy Jr. might refrain from maligning anyone else as a Nazi sympathizer.

Turns out it wasn't just Grampa Joe with a soft spot for Der Fuhrer -- so did his second eldest son and future president John F. Kennedy during trips to Germany as a young man, according to a new book, "John F. Kennedy -- Among the Germans: Travel Diaries and Letters, 1937-1945." (Audio after the jump)

America is doomed, as far as Ed Schultz is concerned, and he's doing his darndest to cash in on its demise. This from a man who rarely misses a chance to bray about his patriotism and the alleged lack of it among conservatives.

During nearly every broadcast of his weekday radio show, Schultz can be heard narrating an ad for ITM Trading, a Phoenix-based company that buys and sells gold. (Audio after the jump)

In what some have described as a "bombshell" statement, ABC News Political analyst Trey Hardin said something on Monday morning any reporter with any kind of meaningful inside connections in Washington should have known, but apparently wouldn't dare say or write: "I can say with a very strong sense of certainty that there are people very close to this president that not only knew what the IRS were doing but authorized it."

Martin continued: "It simply just does not happen at an agency level like that without political advisers likely in the West Wing certainly connected to the president’s ongoing campaign organization that didn’t know about it." Again, many experienced reporters in Washington had to know this. Any remaining doubts that what Hardin said is true disappeared today when Congressman Darrell Issa, as reported by Kerry Picket at Breitbart News, released hearing testimony previous obtained (bolds are mine):

On his Wednesday radio show, Glenn Beck read a threat of Occupy Wall Street violence that appeared on the Web. Although no author was mentioned, it was written by DU fraudster William Rivers Pitt  who has a history of involuntarily turning himself into a Web laughingstock on numerous occasions.

Remember the Karl Rove indictment hoax back in May 2006? Pitt was one of the perpetrators of that non-event. Since David Shuster of MSNBC at that time practically assured that Rove would be indicted, Pitt and his cohorts decided to deliver a "scoop" that Rove had already been indicted on May 12, 2006. When that indictment failed to materialize, Pitt changed his story a bit and declared the indictment would take place within "24 business hours."  A month later when Karl Rove was still walking free, Pitt still refused to admit there would be no indictment but did issue what could best be described as a voluminous partial birth non-apology which in addition to providing reams of unintentional humor must also be of interest to mental health professionals fascinated by the vast amount of whining self-pity.

Sane, normal people are sickened by the jihad and the increasingly frequent atrocities committed in its name. Then there are other people -- Progressive Change Campaign Committee co-founder Adam Green, for example -- who on some bizarre level seem to draw inspiration from it.

Appearing on Ed Schultz's radio show yesterday, one week after an off-duty British soldier was beheaded by two Muslim fanatics on a London street, Green used decidedly peculiar language to describe how he sees Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell vulnerable to a challenge. (Audio after the jump)

Ever reach that point when you realize you're arguing with fools? Eric Bolling got there yesterday on Geraldo Rivera's radio show.

Bolling, co-host of the afternoon talk show "The Five" on Fox News, tussled with Rivera and another guest, former New York governor Eliot Spitzer, over the Obama administration's response to the terrorist attack on an American diplomatic compound in Benghazi last September. (Audio after the jump).

Hard to believe there are people who think along these lines, but that's left-wing radio for you.

One of its ditziest inhabitants, the habitually juvenile Randi Rhodes, resents that she's far less talented and influential than Fox's Bill O'Reilly, so she responds with insipid analysis. (Audio after the break)

The signs keep accumulating that the IRS scandal is worse than liberals are willing to concede.

On Bill Press's radio show yesterday, a reporter with left-leaning Politico told Press that the Internal Revenue Service dragging its feet on applications for tax-exempt status from tea party groups probably affected the outcome of last year's election. (Video after the jump)

Ah, seems like old times.

Way back when, it was Congressman Jim McDermott's apologia for Saddam Hussein that earned McDermott the enduring nickname "Baghdad Jim." (Audio after page break)

When Lyndon Johnson lost CBS anchorman Walter Cronkite during the Vietnam War, or so the legend goes, he knew his days in the White House were numbered.

If President Obama hears what previously stalwart liberal ally Ed Schultz said on his radio show yesterday, he may feel a similar chill down his spine. (Audio after page break)
