The radio talk show host in question is Bill Cunningham. In case you're wondering who he is, this is Bill Cunningham: " Vituperative remarks about President Obama are a staple of Cunningham's radio show. He has attacked Obama as a racist, alleged that the president wants to "gas the Jews," and invoked "six-six-six" and "the beast" in discussing "Barack Hussein Obama." He's adopted the rhetoric of birthers and even made racially charged remarks about Obama's father, stating, "That's what black fathers do. They simply leave." The poor are also among Cunningham's favorite targets for attack: He has stated that they are impoverished "because they lack values, ethics, and morals," and advocated "beat[ing] the hell outta" homeless people with "a big old cane, Singapore-style." : http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/archives/individual/2010_08/025469.php Do you think having someone like this broadcasting his show from his Capitol office will be a good thing for Boehner, will it show him to be a responsible leader whether he actually becomes Speaker of the House or not?

I wonder if this creep invited himself to do his show from Boehner's capital office. It just seem too weird to imagine that these two got together one day and came up with this idea. I don't see it as impossible that one day Cunningham thought this saying that he will be broadcasting from Boehner's office would stroke his ego in front of his listeners. I have failed to read a conformation from Boehner's office confirming such a plan.

I've tried to find a confirmation or a denial from Boehner's office with no luck so far. I did hear somewhere that no radio shows can be broadcast from any Senate office but that for some reason it is allowed for the House. Cunningham isn't that credible so he could have just made it up. I guess time will tell! Annie

I can hardly wait. Do you think he'll be a "one-hit-wonder"? Annie

Sounds like a three ring circus is in the works...There is always one in every crowd. I saw one of his diatribes on UTube. I don't think I will be tuning in to another. I'd rather wait for the paperback version. Thanks for the heads up. Shalom~Adoniah

He was the one who introduced John McCain at one of his rallies in 2008 and kept saying "Barack Hussein Obama" and some other very unkind things about the President, if I remember correctly. McCain later denounced him and apologized. I guess THAT says a lot! Annie
