    I wonder what other groups are on his list to be enslaved?

    Hey, wouldn't that take away jobs from other Americans? After all slaves are not paid for their work.

    I know. After taking care of the Mexicans, who does he want to go after next?

    You mean them there new slaves would be taking away the very same jobs that GOP types are complaining about being taken away by illegal immigrants?

    Gives the impression that they(some conservative GOP'ers) aren't REALLY concerned about the jobs, but rather are just a mean, nasty, vile group of selfish people who don't care about the welfare of anyone except those who look like them and hold the same ideologies.

    I wonder just how many conservatives have opinions as idiotic as the ones shown in the OP. Also, I have to admit my ignorance in having never heard of Jan Mickleson until reading this thread. Not all conservatives listen to talk radio (and of course nobody here has said that they do.)

    Not even going to look him up. The author of this OP and his lapdog have stated they want Whitey in perpetual payback mode anyway. This is just a swipe that misses. They're running a corrupt old woman and a stupid man.

    Illegal immigration is the modern day form of slavery - and all democrats/libs are in favor of that.

    This story is making the rounds on the progressive sites.

    The 'Media Matters' version of it is titled "Iowa radio host and influential conservative kingmaker Jan Mickelson..."

    Kingmaker? No one's even heard of the guy until now.

    He's big in Iowa and he has lots of listeners. There's this little Presidential caucus coming up in Iowa. You know, the one to kick of the election cycle. Candidates that don't make the first pass in Iowa are toast. So yes, he's influential.

    Yes thank you, I am aware of the Iowa caucus. Have never heard of Jan Mickelson until now, and doubt if many others have. In particular I doubt if many of the progressives who are quoting ever heard of him before.

    He is local and it is doubtful he has any influence beyond that. Those who go to the area may hear him and then never again. The Caucus being there means little to nothing with regard to his influence and audience.

    Depends on how he said -
    As Rush says he uses absurdity to show the how liberals are absurd.

    Was threre a link to the original monologue?

    Yes apparently local and unknown anywhere else. In another week no one will even remember the name is my guess.

    Des Moines is number 72 in Arbitron's market system - 639,000 people live within that radio market. WHO is number 2 in the market with a 6.4 quarter hour share. AQH is the average number of persons, ages 12+, who listened during any average quarter hour from 6am to midnight, Monday through Sunday in the Metro Survey Area. Assuming every person in the market is listening to the radio during this fellers radio program the largest possible audience is 44,569.

    Nielsen Book had WHO 1040AM at a 5.5 share this past summer. Granted the station is a 50,000 watt flagship in the market but it is not an influential powerhouse in the world of talk radio.

    It is in Iowa. He's the #1 radio talk show host and has an audience of 400,000.

    Because he said something controversial he will get new listeners. The GOP candidates grovel to be on his show. He will eventually name a favorite in the GOP race. He has and does influence Iowans.

    And without Huffington Post, Mickelson's mindless rant would have stayed there. He got more print coverage than airtime. He's a big fish in a little pond hoping someone will make him a big fish in a bigger pond.

    He's in the middle of the BOTTOM half of the top 100 media markets. More folks watch Al Jazerra TV than listen to his radio station. My wife's turkey casserole recipe got more shares on Facebook.

    Insignificant voices have been saying outlandish things since the beginning of time.

    Edited to include your additional comments"

    I hope he doesn't do his own taxes because the math doesn't work. There are only 639,000 people in region where his radio station is heard. If every person in the Des Moines-Amea market were listening to the radio while he was on the air less than 45,000 people would be listening to TalkRadio 1040AM.
