This second message did not result in a phone call. It resulted in an extended response aided by his producer. They both responded to me on air. But no return call was forthcoming. It has been said before that if you wrestle with a pig you will get dirty and the pig just might like it. Okay, I admit that I’m a pig. Watching the opposition cower from the challenge is sometimes fun. So I wrote Neal one last time:
Hi Old friend. See message below. This is from a reader. It looks like your bully tactics are failing. In fact, it looks like I am getting to you. Are you OK?: “Mike, was listening to Neal ‘the joke master’ Boortz when Neal came back from a break and just sounded irate and spitting mad! You must have just called or sent him a message cause for 2 or 3 minutes he could not stop ranting about you and his inability to defend his Abortion stance. He was so flabbergasted his side kick Belinda had to pipe in and call you a ‘one trick pony’ … Keep up the good work! He will either have to Debate you in which case he’ll become the mental midget he is or you just might pound some sense into him! Love your columns.
Since Boortz will neither debate me nor let me call in his show, there is only one thing that can be done. Defenders of life should simply call in the Neal Boortz Show. The toll free number is 877.310.2100. You may just call 404.872.0750 if you live in the Atlanta area. When you call, all you have to do is make one simple request by saying “Please finish the following sentence, Neal: It is okay to kill a baby in the womb when _____.”
As soon as you call, be prepared for Boortz to hang up the phone. Like all social liberals, he’s anti-choice on the issue of rational discourse. But he enjoys the protection of a living, breathing constitution. It allows him to lock himself inside the womb of his radio studio where no man can abort a monologue struggling for survival in a state of intellectual infancy.
