Howard Stern

I don’t know how much political influence Howard Stern has, or whether South Park Republicanism is a ‘real’ phenomenon, but if he is, and it is, the President should be worried about what Mr. Stern was saying on the radio this morning (hey, I was in a taxi, I just happened to hear it…). House support for the Broadcast Indecency Enforcement Act may have been bipartisan, but there’s little doubt that the GOP will get the credit or blame for pushing forward this rather neurotic piece of legislation, and the same is true of the other regulatory consequences of Janet Jackson’s briefly bared breast. It will be interesting to see how this aspect of the culture war plays in November. Not well, I suspect: Red America listens to Howard Stern too.
