Incredible Hulk tie (pic here) when he knows he's going to get into a fight on the Senate floor.
As you've probably heard by now, Teddy got his ass kicked recently when he went up against Washington State Senator Maria Cantwell (he held a Defense appropriations bill hostage by attaching a provision that would open drilling in ANWR - and Cantwell wasn't having any of that). Needless to say, Maria gained even more respect from me when I read this:
...Washington's Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell, had found an Incredible Hulk tie in the Senate cloakroom the previous night and donned it while she worked the phones to round up anti-drilling votes.Gotta love that!

Oddly enough, I will be too busy with the upcoming holidays to fulfill Mr. Styble's fantasy. I have never in my life ever seen a broadcaster so desperate for callers before - it's pretty amazing. I firmly believe that if Mr. Styble took my advice (slowed down his delivery, dropped the unneeded words, and kept it to one topic for longer than thirty-seconds) he wouldn't have to email his critics to find a caller....or he could just do what Lou does, and talk with his Producer...
And to clarify, I have no personal contempt towards Mr. Styble - I hope he has a wonderful holiday and a great New Year - my only problem lies in his ability as a talk-show host - I know good radio when I hear it - and he ain't it.
On the up-side, he wasn't arrested this week!

The big loser in this whole mess (unless you count Robin and Maynard, who were already losers as the Buzz's morning show, and are now out of work) is the Tom Leykis fan base - as Tom's show has also been moved to KISW, but from afternoon drive (at the Buzz - where it was carried live) to the middle of the night (at KISW, on tape delay).
Tom's fans are a rambunctious bunch - and I'm sure by now you're wondering what any of this has to do with the worst broadcaster in Seattle - Mr. Rhymes with Bible Bryan Styble. I found on wewantleykis.com (a quickly put-together fan site devoted to getting Leykis back on the air live in Seattle) a prank call to the Lou Pate show (710 KIRO is owned by the same company that owns the Buzz/Wolf and KISW) - and who would be sitting in for Lou last night, but our good buddy Bryan Styble? You can listen to the call here.
Nothing warms the blood like a good prank call (although I do feel for the Producer/call-screener - I've done more than my fair share of call-screening, and you always feel like an ass when one gets by you...)
