I would think my program director would have problems if I told the 
President to Go **** himself as happened to our lovely vice president 
last night during Spike's Katrina documentary (so wonderful to hear it 
again and have a face to put with it) but he has no problem with Go To 
Hell, Mr. Bush. I gotta tell ya Jim , I love saying it. Might not work 
in your neighborhood but goes over fine in mine. I certainly don't feel 
like I'm in any way mimicking Howard Stern. I'm certainly not worried 
about offending a listener or two, I'm sure I do it at least once every 
show with musical choices. There's a lot I won't say over the airwaves 
but the titles on the disc aren't among them
